What Information Do We Collect?
We collect two types of data and information from you:
(1) Non-Personal Information – We retain some non-personally identifiable information ("Non-Personal Information"), such as your approximate geo-location, your web request, browser type, browser language, web pages you visit before or after visiting our Website or using the App, URLs, platform type, click numbers, landing pages, viewed pages and the order of those pages and time spent on pages. This information is collected and retained for security reasons and so that we can audit and statistically track usage, audit our affiliates, and calculate payments to third parties.
Web Beacons - We also use a software technology called "clear gifs" (also known as Web Beacons). Web Beacons are small pieces of code placed on a website to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a web page. For example, web beacons can be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a "cookie" to the browser of a visitor viewing that page.
(2) Personal Information - "Personal Information" is information that may be of a private or sensitive nature, including your name, gender, phone number, e-mail address or mailing address, and IP address. We collect the following Personal Information from you when you create an account ("Account") on the Website which is required to access certain parts of the Service: your full name, email address, password, and phone number.
As an alternative, you will also be able to create an Account using your credentials with a designated third party website or service such as Facebook, Google+ or Twitter ("Third Party Account"). Doing so will enable you to login to your Account via your Third Party Account. If you choose this option, a Third Party Account pop-up box will appear at the time of creating your Account which you will need to approve in order to proceed with the Account opening, and which will describe the types of information that we will obtain from and the types of activities that we may perform in connection with your Third Party Account. Such information may include (but not be limited to) your Personal Information stored on this Third Party Account, such as your user name, email address, profile picture, gender, date of birth and any other information which you have chosen to make profile on such Third Party Account. Please note that once your Account has been opened, the Personal Information we have access to via a Third Party Account is also dependent on your individual privacy settings in such Third Party Account and any privacy policies which are maintained by the providers of such Third Party Accounts.
We treat any Non-Personal Information which is specifically connected or linked to any Personal Information as Personal Information.
