What kind of information does the Smyth web site gather?
The information we learn from visitors helps us personalize and continually improve your experience at our website. For example, we use page tracking statistics to help us determine which information is most relevant to visitors. Here are examples of the types of information we gather:
- Information you give us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website, or give us in any other way. You can of course decline to provide this information when asked, but this may prevent you from receiving more customized communications from Smyth.
- Automatic information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you visit the website. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies” to obtain information whenever your browser navigates to pages within smythco.com.
- E-mail communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive confirmation when you open emails from smythco.com, if your computer supports such capabilities.
What about cookies?

The “Help” area of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, and have the browser notify you when you have received a new cookie and how to delete it.
