The website might collect, use, store, and disclose browser data collected from visitors, including, where applicable, that third parties (including skimlinks, Google, and other advertisers) may serve content and advertisements, collect personally unidentifiable information directly from visitors, and place or recognize cookies on visitors’ browsers
We will provide links to the appropriate vendor and ad network websites whenever applicable. It is to be assumed that all outbound links to retailers such as Zappos, Roadrunnersports, Jackrabbit, Footlocker, Holabirdsports, New Balance, Nike and other merchants are affiliate links.

If the visitor does not want this information collected and used by us for the disclosed internal purposes, the visitor is given an opportunity to ‘opt-out.’ Our visitors need to recognize, however, that under certain circumstances, if they select to ‘opt-out’ they may not be eligible for certain activities for which the personally identifiable information is needed. (For example, if a contest participant elects to ‘opt-out’ on permitting us to collect and use their personal information, we cannot contact them if they win without using such information.)

We encourage you to periodically check back and review this policy so that you always will know what information we collect, how we use it, and to whom we disclose it. Your continued use of the solereview.com website following the posting of any changes to these terms shall mean that you have accepted those changes.
