Notice of Information We Collect And How We Use It

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience better and easier.

You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but by doing so, you may not be able to take advantage of our Site and App features and functionality. We use personally identifiable information to deliver the Site and App to you and to develop analytics and aggregated data that allows us to improve our Site and App. Once you give us your personal information, you are no longer anonymous to us.

In addition to the specific usages outlined below, we may generally use any information we collect for the following purposes:


Information We Collect About Site Users

Log Files

Like many websites, we automatically gather certain information about our Site traffic and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not by itself identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users’ movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base. We may link this automatically-collected information to your personally identifiable information, in which case it will be used and disclosed as personally identifiable information under this Privacy Policy.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use both session ID and persistent cookies on the Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Site. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. We set a persistent cookie to store your password, so you do not have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site.

If you reject cookies in your browser settings, you may still use our Site, but your ability to use some areas of our Site may be limited.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)

We may employ a software technology called clear gifs, also referred to as web beacons or web bugs, that help manage content on the Site by tracking what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Site users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.


Information We Collect From Registered Users of the Site and App

During registration, you are required to give truthful contact information in accordance with our User Agreement. Registration requires you to provide us with: (i) a unique user name and password, (ii) your e-mail address, (iii) your country of domicile, (iv) your date of birth, and (v) your gender. We use this information to create an account for you on the Site or App, contact you about the services on our Site and App in which you have expressed interest, and customize your experience based on your preferences.

We utilize Google Analytics, which uses log files and cookies (see above) to track certain information about visitors to the Site in the aggregate.

Correspondence

If you choose to leave us feedback, we will collect the information you send us. We retain this information as necessary to resolve disputes, provide customer support and troubleshoot problems as permitted by law.
