Why We Collect Information:
We collect personal information in order to provide the Services on and through the Websites and deliver information that you agree to receive from us.
How We Collect Information:
We collect information in three primary ways:
- You Give Us Information: We collect information from you when you submit it to us through the Websites or Services.
- We Collect Information Automatically: We automatically collect certain types of information when you visit or use the Websites or Services, or when you click on banners, advertisements or hyperlinks. For example, we automatically collect various types of technical information, such as the type of web browser you use, the time and date that you accessed the Websites, the pages or advertisements you visited and the amount of time you did so, and your location to the extent available.
What Information We Collect:
We may collect, store and use information that can be used to identify you and that may be used to determine your use of the Websites or Services, or how the Websites should be made available to you. This information includes:
- Information about your visits to and use of the Websites or Services;
- Information which will determine the country or region within a country from which you are accessing the Websites;
- Your browser preferred language; and/or
- Information that you provide to us directly or through any of the Websites, directly or indirectly (i.e., provided to us by the Websites as a result of your use thereof) or Services.
Please do not submit any sensitive personal information or data to us, including but not limited to your: (i) racial or ethnic origin; (ii) political, philosophical or religious beliefs, including membership in a political party or trade union; (iii) physical or mental health, biometric details or genetic makeup; or (iv) sexual orientation or preferences. If any such information is submitted to us, it is at your own risk.
Even if you do not submit personal information through the Websites, we may gather navigational information about where visitors go on or through the Websites, what materials or advertisements they “click” or access, and information about the technical efficiencies of our services. This information allows us to provide our services to our clients and customers, as well as help us better understand the overall and individual Website user experience. This information also helps us improve the quality of our services to our clients and customers, as well as those visiting and using the Websites, by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, and services the Websites’ users prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information (for example, domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, email address, and click-stream data). We may also create and use electronic records to compile statistics about how our visitors collectively interact with the Websites. We may also supplement this information with other available public or commercial databases to build out user profiles for improved targeting and to share with our advertisers for their services.
If you are accessing the Websites via a mobile device, information about your use of the Websites, as well as your mobile device type, carrier and location may be communicated to us, and your information may be shared with your mobile carrier or access provider.
We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies on the Websites. Cookies are bits of electronic information that a website may transfer to a visitor’s computer to identify specific information about that visitor’s visits to that website. Session cookies or transient cookies are cookies that are stored in temporary memory and are not retained when the browser is closed. In other words, they are erased when you close your browser. Session cookies do not collect information from your computer and typically will store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify you. Persistent cookies assign a unique identification to your computer and are typically stored on your computer’s hard drive and are used to help track clicks as you use or access the Websites, or to tell us whether you have previously visited the Websites. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until affirmatively deleted by you.
We may also use FLASH cookies. FLASH cookies, also known as shared local objects, are cookies that are placed on your computer that are not removed through normal browser management tools.
We may also use traffic analysis software to track the use patterns of users of the Websites, and other technologies such as digital fingerprinting, browser cache, device IDs, or watermarking to identify the user of the Websites.
We may also use web beacons or clear .gifs. Web beacons or clear .gifs, and similar technologies are pieces of code placed on a web page to collect data on the users of a specific web page.
Server Logs and Widgets:
We may use web server logs. A web server log is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain webpages to your browser. Certain activities that you perform utilizing the Websites or Services may record information in server logs, such as if you enter a search term into a search box located on the Services. For example, the server log may record the search term(s) you use, or the link you clicked on to bring you to the Websites. The server log may also record information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser.
We may also use widgets. A widget is generally an application that can be embedded in a webpage, and which can provide real-time information to the webpage. Widgets are often provided by third-parties to enable collection of data about website usage.
By using or accessing the Services or Websites and/or by contacting us and/or by providing any personal information, you give us your consent to track your activities using the technologies described above, as well as similar technologies developed in the future, and that we may use such tracking technologies in the emails we send you.
How We Use the Information We Collect:
We use the information we collect in a variety of ways. Primarily, we use the information we collect to provide better Services to our clients and customers, as well as provide more targeted and better services to users of the Websites using all the technologies referenced above.
We also use the information we collect internally in our business for many business purposes, such as to: (i) provide and improve the Websites and Services; (ii) analyze trends and conduct research about improving the Services; (iii) provide support and respond to questions from customers of our Services and users of the Websites; (iv) provide targeting of advertisements and promotions; (v) learn about the users of the Websites, including authentication of the users identify; (vi) track traffic patterns and Services usage; (vii) provide customer service and technical support with respect to the Services; (viii) correlate information with other commercially available information to identify demographics and preferences to assist us in our Services and advertisement placements; (ix) provide specific relevant marketing, promotional, or other targeted or location-based content or information to our customers and users of the Websites and Services; (x) address information security and/or privacy practices, network functioning, engineering, and troubleshooting issues; (xi) investigate claims and/or legal actions, violations of law or agreements, and compliance with relevant applicable laws and legal process; (xii) comply with law, or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with the law, or otherwise to disclose information to prevent fraud to reduce credit risks, to cooperate with police and other governmental authorities, or otherwise protect the rights of those individuals or entities we deem appropriate; and (xiii) process or engage in a sale of all or part of our business, or if we go through a reorganization or merger.
