1. How We Collect and Use Information
We collect personal information about you from various sources to provide our services to you, to analyze and improve our services, and to communicate with you. The categories of information we collect includes:
Information that you provide to us. We collect information that you provide to us when you set up an account with us, use our Services, or communicate with us. For example, we may request your personal information (e.g., name, postal address, email address, DOB, telephone number, credit/debit card number, security code) or your applicable business information, when you register for an account or purchase our Service. We may also collect any communications that you exchange with us, as well as any information you provide if you take part in any interactive features of the Service (e.g., contests, promotions, surveys, etc.). We collect information you post in public areas of our website, such as comments to blog posts, changes to wikis, or messages to user forums (“User Content”). Please note that User Content is published on our site and will be viewable by the public.
We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service, as well as to communicate directly with you, such as to send you email messages about products and services that may be of interest to you. We may also send you Service-related emails or messages (e.g., account verification, purchase confirmation, changes or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Similarly, if you request information from us through an online contact form or if you email us, we collect the information you provide (e.g., name, telephone number, email address) so that we can respond to you.
Information collected through technology. We automatically collect certain types of usage information when you visit our Service. We may send one or more cookies — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets us help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click, how frequently you access the Service, and other actions you take on the Service), and allow us to track your usage of the Service over time. We may collect log file information about your browser or mobile device each time you access a Site. Log file information may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses, referring URLs, access times, browser types, device types, mobile device identifiers, or information about your interactions with our Service. We may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons), which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns. In addition, we may collect email analytics data, or use third-party email analytics tools, to help us determine which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service. We may collect Web analytics data, or use third-party Web analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service and to understand more about the demographics of our visitors. These tools collect information sent by your browser, including the pages you visit, your use of third party applications, and other information that assists us in analyzing and improving the Service. Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our visitors, we are not able to respond to Do Not Track signals from your browser at this time.
