As is the case with many websites, our servers automatically collect your IP address when you visit our website, and we may associate that with your domain name or that of your Internet access provider. We may also capture certain “clickstream data” pertaining to your website usage. Clickstream data includes, for example, information about your computer or device, Web browser and operating system and their settings, the referring page that linked you to the website, the pages or content you see or click on during your visit and when and for how long you do so, items you download, transactions you complete, and any search terms you have entered on The Billiard Archive website or a referral site.
Among other things, this information enables us to generate analytics reports on the usage of our website. We use Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager to do this.
In addition, we may deploy various tracking technologies on the website to collect additional information about your website visits. For example, we use tracking technologies on our web site that detect visitor activity (such as mouse clicks, scrolls and hovers) and change content on our web site in order to increase visitors’ discovery of content and better enable visitors to find things that they are interested in.
The Billiard Archive website may also uses technologies such as “cookies” and “pixel tags” to improve the functioning of the site and your experience and to learn how visitors are using our website. Cookies are small data files that are automatically sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies enable us to remember what items are in your shopping cart, and to personalize your experience. Pixel tags are tiny graphical images embedded in emails or webpages. Pixel tags are used to determine what parts of a website a visitor has viewed, or whether an email was successfully opened.

Some Web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (DNT) signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how Web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not change our tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your Web browser.
Our third-party partners, such as Web analytics companies and third-party ad networks, collect information about your online activities over time and across our website and other online properties. These third parties may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your Web browser, and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings.
