WE USE COMMON TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES.
We collect personal information about users over time and across different websites when you use this website or service. We also have third parties that collect personal information this way. To do this, we use several common tracking tools. Our vendors may also use these tools. In this policy “we” and “us” refers to both The Donna Karan Company LLC (“DKC”) and our vendors. These may include browser cookies. We may also use web beacons, flash cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies.
WE USE TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS.
– To recognize new or past customers.
– To store your password if you are registered on our site.
– To improve our website and to better understand your visits on our platforms.
– To integrate with third party social media websites.
– To serve you with interest-based or targeted advertising (see below for more on interest-based advertising).
– To observe your behaviors and browsing activities over time across multiple websites or other platforms.
– To better understand the interests of our customers and our website visitors.
WE ENGAGE IN INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING.
We and our partners display interest-based advertising using personal information gathered about you over time across multiple websites or other platforms. This might include apps.
Interest-based advertising or “online behavioral advertising” includes ads that are served to you after you leave our website, encouraging you to return. They also include ads we think are relevant to you based on your browsing habits or online activities. These ads may be served on websites or apps. They might also be served in emails. We might serve these ads, or third parties may serve ads. They might be about our products or other companies’ products.
HOW DO WE GATHER RELEVANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU FOR INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING?
To decide what is relevant to you, we use information you make available to us when you interact with us, our affiliates, and other third parties. This information is gathered using the tracking tools described above. For example, we or our partners might look at your purchases or browsing behaviors. We might look at these activities on our platforms or the platforms of others.
We work with third parties who help gather this information. These third parties might link your name or email address to other information they collect. That might include past purchases made offline or online. Or, it might include online usage information.

Our Do Not Track Policy: Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that allow you to tell a website not to track you.

If you block cookies, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.
