- What was I looking at?
The content that you were viewing is a type of link used by Amazon.com
Associate websites to enable Amazon.com to deliver content directly to your
Typically, when you look at a Web page, the words and pictures you see
actually come from several sources. Your browser software assembles the pieces
and displays them as a single page. On the Associate website you were
visiting, most of the content you saw was transmitted from server computers
used by the site's operator. However, the placement you just clicked on was
different--we sent it to you directly from Amazon.com.
- What is an Amazon.com
An Amazon Associate is a website owner who places
links to the Amazon.com website. The website
that displayed this link to you is an Amazon.com Associate.
- What information about me does
Amazon.com receive and retain through this link?
Your browser automatically sends any Amazon cookies on your computer to our
server when you view this type of Amazon.com link on an Associate website.
We may use your Amazon.com cookie to determine whether you are a recognized
Amazon visitor and to offer personalized content (such as product
recommendations) and special offers.
In addition, we keep a record of your visits to Amazon Associate webpages
that have Amazon.com content links on them. Among other things, we use this
information to better personalize your web experience and improve our Amazon
services. The information we collect is subject to the Amazon.com Privacy Notice.
- What choices do I have about the
automatic information you collect about me?
If you do not want us to keep a record of the Amazon Associate websites you
visit, you may opt-out of such information collection by clicking here.
After you opt-out, we will no longer collect or use this information. However,
all previously collected information will be retained by our systems to better
personalize your web experience and improve our Amazon services.
Of course, if you choose to click through to the Amazon.com site, we, like
most websites, will receive and store your clickstream to, through, and from
our site. For more information about the automatic information we collect,
please read our Privacy
If you delete all cookies from your computer, you will need to opt-out
again. Otherwise, we will begin to keep a record of Amazon Associate websites
you visit from the time you delete such cookies.

parties any information this service collects about me?
No. No personal information we may collect about customers who view, click,
or purchase through Associate links is shared with third parties, including
Associates, except as described by the Privacy Notice governing the
- Are products listed on Amazon.com
Associate websites through this linking service the same as the personalized
recommendations I receive when visiting Amazon.com?
They can be. The products you see listed when visiting an Amazon
Associate's site can be based on a variety of factors, such as that site's
topics and sales history or your browsing history on Associate websites and
Amazon.com. We might also show you items based on your own personal purchase
history at Amazon.com. The Associate website hosting this Amazon.com link does
not have access to these "personalized" recommendations.
