COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
When you use the Services, we collect various categories of Personal Information, which will generally fall into two categories: information that you provide to us directly, and information that we collect automatically.
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE DIRECTLY
Basic Information. When you use the Services, we will collect information that you provide to us, for example, through our websites, mobile apps, and/or any agreements you’ve entered into with respect to the Services. This information may include, for example, your first name, last name, residence address, phone number, e-mail address. We may also collect billing information, such as credit card numbers and related information necessary to complete online and/or in-app transactions.
External Sources. We may receive Personal Information from publicly available databases, joint marketing partners and event sponsors, entities to which we provide client services, such as your employer, and social media platforms.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AUTOMATICALLY
Cookies. We employ cookies on the website. A cookie is a small, encoded text file sent between a web server and web browser when you visit the website. That file is stored on the hard drive of the device used to access the internet, and will be accessed when you revisit the website that created the cookie file. Your web browser uses the information stored in the cookie to make navigating the website easier, such as automatic login and other functions and preferences. Cookies come in many flavors. Functional cookies ensure that certain parts of the website work properly. By placing functional cookies, we make it easier for you to visit our website and use the Services. We may place these cookies without your consent. Analytical cookies are used to optimize the website experience for our users. Through the use of analytical cookies, we receive insight into the usage of our website. We ask your permission to place analytical cookies to ensure our website offers a continued positive user experience.
Other Technologies. We may use clear GIFs, pixel tags, and other such cookie-like technologies to track the activities of users of our website and to compile statistics about the use of our website and/or e-mail response rates. We may collect information about your computer, mobile device, browser and operating system (e.g., type, model, or version), or internet protocol (IP) address (which may be used to derive your general geographic area).
Log files. Our servers may automatically record information related to your use of our website, which may include information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, mobile device type, diagnostic information, referring web page, and other web pages visited.
