INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT THROUGH THE SERVICES
Information You Provide to the Services
You may provide us with information, including personal and other information about you, such as demographic information (ZIP code, gender or age, for example) and information about your interests and preferences. In addition, the Services may allow you to pay online, and therefore require that you supply us with information associated with your credit card or other accepted form of payment.
Where we ask you for personal information, we will tell you if it is optional. Otherwise, we are asking because it is necessary in order for us to provide you with the information or fulfill the transaction you requested.
The Services are intended for persons age eighteen (18) and older. We do not knowingly collect personal information from those younger than the age of eighteen (18).
Information We Collect Automatically As You Access and Use the Services
In addition to any personal information or other information you choose to submit to the Services, we, and our third-party service providers (including any third-party analytics providers), may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain usage information whenever you visit or interact with the Services (“Usage Information”). This Usage Information may include the website browser or the operating system you are using, the URL that referred you to our Services, the search terms you entered into a search engine that lead you to our Services, all of the areas within our Services that you visit and the time of day, the next website you visit after leaving our Services, among other information. We may use this Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including without limitation analyzing trends, administering the Services, tracking users' movements around the Services, gathering demographic information about our user base as a whole, and enhancing or otherwise improving the Services. Usage Information is generally non-identifying and if we associate it with your personal information, we treat it as personal information. In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for your computer, mobile phone or other device (any, a “Device”) used to access the Services. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Services, and our servers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. We may be able to collect or infer your approximate location based on your Device Identifier (such as your IP address).
The methods used to collect Usage Information may include, without limitation, the following:
Certain browsers or browser add-ons, such as Adobe Flash, may provide additional local data storage mechanisms that are used in a manner similar to cookies, and some of the content included on our Services may make use of this local storage. For example, a Flash cookie is a data file placed on a device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built into or downloaded by you onto your device. Flash cookies may be used for various purposes, including, without limitation, enabling a Flash feature and remembering your preferences. For more information about Flash and the privacy choices Adobe offers, visit here.
Pixel tags. Pixel tags are tiny graphic images or other web programming code that tell us what parts of our Services customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our Services. Pixel tags and similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors, to monitor how users navigate the Services, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened, to count how many particular links were actually viewed. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read.
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to a website, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
Click Through URLs. In some of our email messages we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Services. When a customer clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination webpage. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.
