This Policy covers only data collected through the Site and not any other data collection or processing, including, without limitation, data collection practices of other web pages to which we link or data that we or our affiliates collect offline or through web sites that do not display a direct link to this Policy. Occasionally, we may refer to this Policy in notices and consent requests related to surveys and special-purpose web pages; under such circumstances, this Policy applies as modified in the particular notice or consent request (e.g., with respect to types of data collected or purposes of collection).
Types of Data and Collection Methods
When you request information, subscribe to or order a product or service, register as a user, respond to an online survey or otherwise actively send us data, we may collect data such as your name, email address(es), mailing address(es) and information related to the business you represent. In connection with chargeable services, we will also collect payment information (e.g., credit card number and related verification information), phone number, and billing and shipping addresses. In each such instance, you will know what data we collect through the site, because you actively submit it.
When you visit the Site, we automatically receive and record information from your computer and Internet connection, such as the IP address of your computer and/or Internet service provider, the date and time you access our web sites, the Internet address of web sites from which you link to our site, the computer technology you are using and your movements and preferences on our site.
We may also allow other companies such as web analytics partners, advertisers, or ad networks to set or access their cookies or web beacons (also referred to as 1x1 pixel.gifs or action tags) on the Site. For example, we may use third party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet or to display ads for other companies on the Site. These third-party advertising companies employ cookies and web Beacons to measure and improve the effectiveness of ads for their clients, including us. To do so, these companies may use information about your visits to the Site and other websites. This information may include: date/time of banner ad shown, their cookie, and the first three octets of the IP address. This anonymous information can also be used for online preference marketing purposes. These third parties may use information about your visits to the Site in order to provide ads about goods and services of interest to you. You are free to decline cookies, but by doing so, you may not be able to use certain features on the Site or take full advantage of all of our offerings.
