Personal Information You Give Us
We collect and may transmit personally identifiable information that you provide to us through the Site (“Your Information”). Your Information may include your first and last name, physical address, e-mail address, telephone number, and any other identifier that permits us to contact you.
Information We Collect Automatically Through the Site
Whenever you interact with the Site, we automatically receive and record information from your browser. Other information collected automatically may include your IP address, the type of browser or application you are using to access the Site, and the identity of the Site page or feature you are requesting. We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, and gather broad demographic data for aggregate use. We may also collect information regarding the device(s) you use to access or use the Site.
We may also use “web beacons”, i.e. “web bugs” or “single–pixel” or “clear” GIFs, on the Site. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their website.
HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION
We may use and share non-personal, de-identified information (i.e. information that cannot be used to identify you) for any lawful business purpose without any obligation or accounting to you. For example, we can use non-personal information for developing products, services, and providing those offerings to other users and third parties. We may use your personal information to generate non-personal information. When we do so, we will take reasonable measures to ensure that the non-personal information is no longer personally identifiable and cannot later be used to identify you. We may also disclose non-personal, aggregate, anonymous data in a de-identified format to investors and potential partners based on information collected from users.
In addition, some mobile network providers (“Mobile Provider”) in the U.S. are required to use technology that tracks the physical location of mobile devices that use their service. Depending on your Mobile Provider and mobile device, we may automatically receive this information. If we begin to offer services that use this tracking (“pinpointing”) information, we will obtain your consent (an opt-in) before using the information. After obtaining such consent, we may use and store this information to provide location-based services, including location-targeted advertising. Most mobile devices provide users with the ability to disable location services. These controls are usually located in the mobile device's settings menu. If you have questions about how to disable your mobile device's location services, we recommend you contact your Mobile Provider or your mobile device manufacturer.
We may employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and we may need to share Your Information with them to provide services to you. Unless we tell you differently, they do not have any right to use Your Information beyond what is necessary to assist us.
We may also disclose Your Information at the request of law enforcement or government agencies or in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process to establish, protect, or exercise our legal or other rights or to defend against a legal claim or as otherwise required or allowed by law. We may disclose Your Information in order to protect the rights, property, or safety of a user or any other person. We may disclose Your Information to investigate or prevent a violation by you of any contractual or other relationship with us or your illegal or harmful activity.
PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
Protecting your account login credentials (that is, your username and password) from unauthorized access is your responsibility. You may not share your login credentials with any third party. We recommend you log out after accessing your account, change your password on a periodic basis, and limit access to your computer or device and its browser. While we use commercially reasonable security measures to prevent unauthorized persons from accessing our files or tampering with the Company Technology, we cannot guarantee that these efforts will always be successful. WE DO NOT REPRESENT, WARRANT, OR GUARANTEE THAT OUR SAFEGUARDS WILL PROTECT THE TOTAL PRIVACY OF YOUR INFORMATION DISCLOSED ON THE COMPANY TECHNOLOGY. YOUR INFORMATION MAY BE ACCESSED AND VIEWED BY OTHER INTERNET USERS, WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND PERMISSION, WHILE IN TRANSIT TO OR FROM US. WE CANNOT AND DO NOT ENSURE, REPRESENT, WARRANT, OR GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT THROUGH THE SITE.
