1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT ON OUR SITES.
Information You Provide To Us
We collect information that you provide to us through the Sites, including information that could reasonably be used to contact you or to identify you personally (such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or home address (“Personal Information”)). For example, we may collect Personal Information when you register on the Sites, request information, submit comments or participate in a promotion, survey or other feature, or otherwise communicate or interact with us through the Sites. You may also be asked to provide other information about yourself, such as demographic information (gender, zip code, age, etc.) or certain information about your preferences and interests. If you do not want your personal information collected, please do not submit it.
Information We Collect Automatically
When you visit or interact with the Sites, we, as well as any third-party advertisers and/or service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Sites are accessed and used (“Usage Information”). Usage Information may include, for example, browser type, operating system, the page served, the timestamp, and the preceding page views. This data provides us with information about the use of the Sites, such as how many visitors visit specific pages, how long they stay on a given page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they click on. This information helps us keep the Sites fresh and interesting to our visitors and tailor content to a visitor's interests. Usage Information is generally not personally identifiable.
We may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for the computer, mobile phone, or other device (collectively, “Device”) you use to access the Sites. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a website or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier.
The technologies used on the Sites to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, include:
Cookies. Cookies are data files placed on a computer’s hard drive when it visits a website. We, or our third-party advertising service providers, may place cookies or similar files on your Device for security purposes, to facilitate site navigation and to personalize your experience while visiting the Sites. Cookies allow us to collect technical and navigational information, such as browser type, time spent on the Sites and pages visited, and then serve offers that are most likely to appeal to our visitors. You may have the ability to disable cookies using your browser preferences, but please be aware that some features of the Sites may not function properly if you disable cookies.
Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons, may be included in the Sites and e-mail messages. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Sites, to monitor how users navigate the Sites, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to determine whether content sent was actually viewed.
Your web browser may have a setting that allows you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal when you visit various websites or online services. The Sites, like many other websites, are not designed to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from browsers. To learn more about “Do Not Track” signals, you may wish to visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
