1. Information we collect about you

We collect several types of information about visitors to the Website, interactions with our Company, and/or users of our Services. We may collect this information either directly when you provide it to us or automatically as you navigate through the Website or in your communications with our Company. Here are the categories of information we may, from time to time, collect:

(a) Personally Identifiable Information. “Personally Identifiable Information” refers to information by which you may be personally identified, such as your name or email address.

  • Voluntarily Provided Information. We will collect and process such data about you when you voluntarily provide us with that data (and therefore consent to our collection of such data), such as when you register for a Service, subscribe to a newsletter, submit feedback, enter a contest, fill out a survey, or send us any other type of communication. When ordering products or services on the Website, you may also be asked to provide a credit card number and other payment-related information. WE MAY ELECT TO PROCESS CREDIT CARDS AND RELATED INFORMATION VIA THIRD PARTY SITES AND APPLICATIONS NOT DIRECTLY THROUGH THE WEBSITE. You may also voluntarily provide information to be published or displayed (“posted”) on public areas of the Website (such as blogs, forums, message boards, and the like), or transmitted to other users of the Website using “sharing” features (collectively, “User Contributions”). Your User Contributions are posted and transmitted to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Website with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.

  • Information Captured with Your Consent. From time to time in the future, we may collect your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our Services and to gather demographic information. We do not collect more Personally Identifiable Information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity on the Website. Please see below for information about our consent functionality for how, when and if the Company activates such data collection, you will opt in to this type of data collection, known as “cookies.”

(b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information, that does not by itself identify a specific individual. Such information tells us about your equipment, browsing actions, the resources that you access and use through the Services, your operating system and browser type. Our third party ad servers will provide us with summary, but not individual, reports that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked upon at our Website. The information that we collect automatically is “statistical” in nature. It helps us to deliver a better and more personalized service to users, by enabling us to estimate usage patterns, customize our Services according to your individual preferences, and speed up your searches.

(c) Device Information. When you use our Services, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use and the operating system version, so we know the best application version to provide you with. We do not ask you for, access or track any location based information from your mobile device at any time while using our Services.

2. Where we store data

The data that we collect from you is stored by us, in a secure location. From time to time, it may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the United States (“US”) or the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the US or EEA who work for us or for one of our service providers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfillment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. The Company will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Notwithstanding the foregoing, WE MAY ELECT TO PROCESS CREDIT CARDS AND RELATED INFORMATION VIA THIRD PARTY SITES AND APPLICATIONS, NOT DIRECTLY THROUGH THE WEBSITE.
