Like many other websites, UPSANDBATTERY.COM makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser used, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks. UPSANDBATTERY uses this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track movement around the site, and gather demographic information.

UPSANDBATTERY may collect information about your computer, including your IP address (including information deriving from your IP address such as your geographic location), operating system, browser type, version and language, access time, duration of access, and referring website addresses.

Cookies and Web Beacons
UPSANDBATTERY.COM does use web technologies including scripts, tags, Local Storage, transport beacons, and “cookies” to store information about visitor’s preferences, to record user-specific information on which pages the user accesses or visits, and to customize the webpage content based on information the visitor sends via their browser.
A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. While cookies are often only used to measure website usage (such as number of visitors and duration of visit) and effectiveness (such as topics visitors are most interested in) and to allow for ease of navigation or use and, as such, are not associated with any personal information, they are also used at times to personalize a known visitor’s experience of a website by being associated with profile information or user preferences. Over time this information provides valuable insight to help improve the user experience.
Cookies are typically categorized as “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies. Session cookies help you navigate through the website efficiently, keeping track of your progression from page to page so that you are not asked for information you have already provided during the current visit, or information needed to be able to complete a transaction. Session cookies are stored in temporary memory and erased when the web browser is closed. Persistent cookies on the other hand, store user preferences for current and successive visits. They are written on your device’s hard disk, and are still valid when you restart your browser. We use persistent cookies, for example, to record your choice of language and country location.
If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers’ respective websites.
Google Analytics is an analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their website through a variety of reports in order to improve the website. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions, as in UPSANDBATTERY’s case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use this information to compile reports and to improve our site. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are used to store information, such as the time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page.
Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our site – for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit this Google page.
