If your browser accepts "cookies," Apex may use both persistent and session ID cookies to determine if you are a repeat or new visitor; to understand how many different visitors come to this site; to personalize your information on future visits; to offer you information that is appropriate to your demographics interests, and preferences; to monitor and improve its services to you; and to facilitate your shopping session.

In addition to cookies, Apex may use pixels, or transparent GIF files, on our sites provided by one or more third-party service providers, based on our specification as to where they are used. These files enable Apex’s service providers to recognize a unique cookie in your Web browser, which, in turn, enables Apex and Apex’s service providers to learn which advertisements and e-mails bring you to our website and how you use the site.
Your personally identifiable information is stored on computer servers in a controlled environment, reasonably protected from unauthorized access, misuse, alteration or disclosure. Although Apex strives to secure your personally identifiable information with the same degree of care that it secures its own confidential information, there can be no assurances that your information will remain confidential.
