When you visit the Howard’s Appliances website, www.howards.com, or the Howard’s Account Portal (together, the “Site”), we and our service providers acting on our behalf automatically collect certain data using tracking technologies like cookies and web beacons to make our website work and improve your customer experience. This Policy describes what tracking technologies we use and how we use them.
What are Cookies?

- Required cookies: make it possible for you to access our account portal, navigate within the portal, and access information related to your account.

- Performance cookies: allow us to measure, analyze and understand how our customers use the Site and to identify ways to improve both its functionality and improve your shopping experience.
Web beacons are small, transparent graphic image files that may be embedded on the Site or our emails, that tracks users’ behavior or helps cookies work. We use web beacons to help us identify your computer and evaluate your likes and dislikes, such as your reactions to our promotions.
Other cookies enable more relevant digital content and better analytics. For example, we use proprietary technology to tailor advertising material for specific users based on their previous behavior. We do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and ad exchanges, and we use a range of advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks, such as Facebook's Custom Audience service.
We also use these technologies to authenticate your access to various areas of our Site, analyze web traffic, combat fraud, and improve our Services. In emails we send, we may use these technologies to track their effectiveness.
By deleting or disabling future cookies, your user experience may be affected and you might not be able to take advantage of certain functions of our Site (such as storing items in your cart between visits, customizing your website experience, and making marketing messages more relevant). Please note that if you opt out of behavioral advertising, you will still see advertisements - they will just not be tailored to your interests. Also note that deleting browser cookies can remove the cookie preferences you have made, so you may need to opt-out again in the future.
Do Not Track
Various browsers allow a “do not track” (DNT) setting that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to websites visited by the individual about the individual’s browser DNT setting. At this time, because there is no general agreement on how companies like Howard’s should interpret Do Not Track signals, Howard’s does not currently commit to respond to DNT signals. We will continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and standards.
