Effective Date: June 15, 2022
To the extent we provide you notice on this Site of different or additional privacy policies or practices (e.g., at the point of our collection), those additional terms shall govern such data collection and use.
3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
3.1. Information You Provide to Us
We do not collect “Personal Information” about you through this Site unless you choose to provide it to us voluntarily, such as through the “Contact Us” page or our client/customer portal. We define “Personal Information” as any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household, which may include your phone number, name, address, email address, or age. If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page.
If you do provide us with Personal Information, we will only use it for the purpose of responding to your inquiry, and we will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information to third parties unless (1) you expressly authorize us to do so, (2) it is necessary to allow our contractors or agents to provide services for us, (3) in order to provide our products or services to you, (4) it is disclosed to entities that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other entities with whom we have joint marketing agreements, or (5) otherwise as we are required or permitted by law. We may also use the information you choose to provide to us to improve the content of this Site and our Services or to contact you for marketing purposes.
We may collect demographic information, such as information about your gender, age, marital status and education level (“Demographic Information”) through your interaction with our Services. The type of information collected will depend on how you use our Services.
The Services do not engage in the collection of Personal Information or information about your online activities over time and across third-party web sites or online services. We have not authorized any third party to collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across different web sites when you visit this web site. Thus, this web site does not respond to web browser “do not track” track signals or other similar mechanisms.
3.2. When You Create an Account
You may choose to create an account with this Site as a customer or client. To create an account, you need to provide account data including your name, and/or email address, and a password.
3.3. Information We Collect When You Use Our Services
In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to us (as described above) we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that store or collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Services (“Usage Information”). This Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies that may be downloaded to your personal computer, browser, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or other device (a “Device”) whenever you visit or interact with our Services. To the extent we associate Usage Information with your Personal Information we collect directly from you on the Services, we will treat it as Personal Information.
Usage Information may include:
• your IP address, UDID or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Services, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier;
• your Device functionality (including browser, operating system, hardware, mobile network information);
• the URL that referred you to our Services;
• the areas within our Services that you visit and your activities there, including remembering you and your preferences;
• your Device location;
• your Device characteristics; and
• certain other Device data, including the time of day, among other information.
A discussion of the types of Usage Information we collect is described in greater detail, below.
3.4. Usage Information Collected Through Use of Tracking Technologies
A. Types of Tracking Technologies We Use
We may use a variety of tracking technologies to automatically collect Usage Information, including, but not limited to, cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, browser fingerprinting, GPS, iBeacons, and ETags (collectively “Tracking Technologies”). A cookie (or “locally shared object”) is a data file placed on your device when you visit our site. Your browser, or other software (including Adobe Flash), may allow you to reject or remove cookies, but if you do so, some features of our Services may not work properly, and we may not be able to remember your preferences the next time that you visit. We also use web server logs to collect and store information about usage of our Services. When you visit this Site from a mobile device, like a smartphone, we may also collect additional information from your device, including your location, device identifier, and information about your mobile network.
B. Purpose of Tracking Technologies

i. When Strictly Necessary to Provide the Services
We may use Tracking Technologies that we consider strictly necessary to allow you to use and access this Site, including Cookies required to prevent fraudulent activity and improve security.

Please note that you cannot opt-out of Tracking Technologies that are strictly necessary.
If you are located in locations not mentioned, this section does not apply to you.
D. Third Party Tracking
E. Do Not Track
Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. There currently is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Therefore, like many websites and online services, our Services do not alter its practices when it receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a Member’s or Visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
F. Disabling Tracking Features
Regular Cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools that are available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some, but not all instances, can be blocked by selecting certain settings.
Each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options in this regard. Also, these tools may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies or HTML5 cookies or other Tracking Technologies. For information on disabling Flash cookies go to Adobe’s website www.adobe.com.
