What kind of personal information does Wearunique.com use?

When you visit our websites, even if you do not place an order, we may collect certain information, such as your IP address, which browser you’re using, and information about your computer’s operating system, application version, language settings and pages that have been shown to you. When you place an order, our system registers through which means and from which websites you have made your order.
We may also receive information about you when you use certain social media services.
