PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
We may gather various types of information, including information that identifies or may identify you as an individual (“Personal Information”) as explained in more detail below.
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
Information You Provide Directly to Us. We will collect any information that you provide to us. For example we may collect certain information, such as your name, phone number, email address during your activity on our website.
Information We Collect Through Automated Means. We also collect information through automated and technical means as you browse or otherwise use our Services.
Website and App Usage Information. As you browse or use the Services, we and our service providers (which are third party companies that work on our behalf to provide and enhance the Services) use a variety of technologies, including cookies and similar tools, to assist in collecting information about how you use the Services. For example, our servers automatically record certain information in server logs. These server logs may include information such as your web request, IP address, browser type and settings, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Services, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, mobile carrier, mobile device identifiers and information about the device you are using to access the Services, date and time stamp information and other such information.
Location Information. With your consent, and consistent with the permissions you have enabled on your device, we collect and process information about the precise location of the device from which you are accessing the App (i.e. GPS coordinates). We also collect and process information about your general location (e.g., approximate geographic location inferred from an IP address or ZIP code).
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies. We and our service providers may also collect data about your use of the Services automatically when you interact with the Site. To collect this information, we and our service providers use Internet server logs, cookies, tags, SDKs, tracking pixels, and other similar tracking technologies. A web server log is a file where website activity is stored. An SDK is a section of code that we embed in our applications and software to allow third parties to collect information about how users interact with the Services. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site, that enables us to: (i) recognize your computer; (ii) store your preferences and settings; (iii) understand which web pages of the Site you have visited; (iv) enhance your user experience by delivering and measuring the effectiveness of content and advertising tailored to your interests; (v) perform analytics; and (vi) assist with security and administrative functions. Tracking pixels (sometimes referred to as web beacons or clear GIFs) are tiny electronic tags with a unique identifier embedded in websites, online ads and/or email, and that are designed to provide usage information like ad impressions or clicks, email open rates, measure popularity of the Site and associated advertising, and to access user cookies. As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather information through other methods.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies by visiting your browser’s the Help menu. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able to sign in, customize, or use some of the interactive features of the Site.
