We do not knowingly collect or retain personal information from individuals under the age of 13, except as permitted by law. Any person providing personal information through the Website affirms that they are 13 years of age or older.
3. Gathering, Use, and Disclosure of Non-personally-identifying Information
Users of the Website Generally: “Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without additional details, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” in contrast, is information like a name or email address that can be directly linked to a specific person. Like most website operators, the Company collects Non-Personally-Identifying Information from users of this Website that web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. This information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system type, browser type, and the web pages the user views immediately before, during, and after visiting the Website. While this information cannot be used to identify a person, it may be possible for the Company to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity, along with other statistical usage data. The Company analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information collected from users of the Website to better understand how visitors use the Website. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, the Company can improve the Website’s design to enhance user experiences in terms of content and ease of use. Periodically, the Company may also release aggregated Non-Personally-Identifying Information collected from Website users, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.
Web Cookies: A “Web Cookie” is a string of information that assigns you a unique identifier that a website stores on a user’s device, and which the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a query to the site. The Company uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help the Company improve users’ experiences and to understand how visitors use the Website. As with other Non-Personally-Identifying Information collected from users of the Website, the Company analyzes and may publish aggregated information gathered using Web Cookies, to help the Company, its partners, and others understand how the Website is being used. These Web Cookies may be recognized when you visit other websites in order to present advertisements about the Company’s services or the services of our affiliates. THOSE WEBSITE USERS WHO DO NOT WISH FOR WEB COOKIES TO BE PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD MODIFY SETTINGS IN THEIR BROWSERS TO BLOCK WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE WEBSITE. HOWEVER, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. USERS WHO BLOCK WEB COOKIES ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
Third-Party Advertisers: We may collaborate with third-party advertisers to display ads when you visit our Website. These companies might use information about your visits to this and other websites, captured in Web Cookies, to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. You can opt-out of several third-party ad servers’ and networks’ Web Cookies simultaneously using a tool created by the Network Advertising Initiative. For more details about this practice and to understand your choices regarding the use of this information by these companies, please visit the following links: http://networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, http://preferences-mgr.truste.com/, or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. Contact us if you wish to know the names of the third-party advertisers we currently partner with.
Web Beacons: A “Web Beacon” is a tiny object embedded in a webpage or email that is typically invisible to the user. It allows website operators to check if a user has viewed a specific page or email. The Company may use Web Beacons on the Website and in emails to count users who have visited specific pages, viewed emails, and to provide co-branded services. Web Beacons do not collect Personally-Identifying Information; they are a tool we might use to gather aggregated data about Website use. Web Beacons collect only limited information such as a Web Cookie number, the time and date of a page or email view, and a description of the page or email where the Web Beacon is placed. You cannot opt out of Web Beacons, but they can be rendered ineffective by refusing all Web Cookies or by adjusting your browser settings to notify you each time a Web Cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline Web Cookies on an individual basis.
Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information: We may publish aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share this data with third parties and our affiliate partners to create and display personalized ads on our Website and third-party websites. We may combine Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect with similar data obtained from other sources. We may also share aggregated data with third parties, including advertisers, consultants, and investors, for general business analysis purposes. For instance, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors our Website receives and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any Personally-Identifying Information and is used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.
