Automated Information Collection
We may connect information collected automatically with information we already have about you in order to identify you as a Factory Buys Direct guest. If we are able to identify you as a Factory Buys Direct's guest we may, for example, link your activity on our website to your activity in a Factory Buys Direct's mobile applications. This allows us to provide you with a personalized experience regardless of how you interact with us – online, in store, mobile, etc.
In order to provide the best guest experience possible, we also use automated information collection technologies for reporting and analysis purposes. We examine metrics such as how you are shopping on our website, in our stores, and on our mobile applications, the performance of our marketing efforts, and your response to those marketing efforts.
