In order to provide such personalized experience, A&F may permit certain third party companies to help tailor advertising that is believed to be of interest to our customers and to collect and use other data about user activities on A&F’s Site through cookies. Cookies (sometimes referred to or known as retargeting cookies) will remember that you have visited our Site and enable us to serve you with advertising when you have left our Site and are visiting other sites and to remind you of products and services you were interested in. A&F may use the following platforms for cookie-based retargeting advertising: Google, Bing, Facebook, and others. If you opt out of their cookies, you will be opting out of A&F’s retargeting advertising as a result.

We have implemented organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information within our organization. A&F follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to it, both during transmission and after it is received.
