Information We Collect Occasionally
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you and communicating with you. We also ask for your e-mail address, which we may use from time to time to contact you regarding information you have requested. When you sign up to be a member of Community, we collect the same contact info from you (address and e-mail), and we also ask for more personal information about you, from age to riding style. Much of this information collected is optional, and can be provided anonymously if you choose.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses burton.com (See "What Happens to the Information We Collect". The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
