Non-Personal Information. When You visit the Website, We may collect non-personal information, such as a catalog of the Website pages You visit. Non-personal information is generally collected through the Website from the following sources: server log files, environmental variables, crash logs, cookies, pixel tags and other similar technologies, mobile software development kits, advertising identifiers, device identifiers and information that You voluntarily provide. Non-Personal information includes the following:
Server Log Files. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer or other device that You are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever You visit the Website, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that You visited. We use your IP address, and the IP addresses of all users, for purposes such as calculating Website usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Website’s servers, and administering the Website. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites.
Environmental Variables. We and our service providers may also collect certain environmental variables, such as computer or device type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version, Internet browser, wireless carrier, Wi-Fi status and Internet browser version. Many of these environmental variables are collected by most browsers, and can be used to optimize your experience on the Website.
Crash logs. We may collect information from crash logs that are generated in the event our mobile applications crash while they are in use. Crash logs gather certain pieces of information about your device and your device’s activities at the time of the crash, but they do not contain any personal information. These help Us determine the root cause of a crash so We can fix it in a future update.
Pixel Tags. We, our service providers, affiliates and/or non-affiliated third-parties, may also use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) in connection with some Website pages and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Website usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1×1), that is ordinarily not visible to Website visitors and may be associated with Cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow Us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Website, to deliver branded services, to provide online advertising, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted e-mail messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the e-mail has been opened. Together with cookies and other technologies, Pixel Tags enable Us to administer and improve our Website and its content, including tracking user movements around the Website, to gather usage information and statistics about how the Website is used, to permit users to log in or enroll in our services, to store user preferences, to target and customize content.
Mobile Software Development Kits. We and our service providers may use mobile software development kits (“SDKs”) to collect event properties within the mobile applications that are similar to environmental variables that are collected by most browsers, which may include general location data (derived from IP address), device manufacturer, and screen height and width. The SDKs track user movements and events occurring within our mobile applications as well as gather information on customers’ interactions and satisfaction with our mobile applications. The SDKs help Us improve our mobile applications for our customers.
Advertising Identifiers. We and our service providers may collect Advertising Identifiers (“Advertising IDs”) that are generated by a mobile device’s operating system. Advertising IDs enable Us and our service providers to serve advertisements to a mobile device by helping to distinguish devices for ad tracking and suppression purposes. You may choose to enable a feature that limits the use of Advertising IDs, or You may reset the Advertising ID on your device. These features do not block all advertisements to your device, but they can prevent relevant advertisements (ads based on your browsing history) from appearing on your device.
Device Identifiers. We, our service providers, affiliates and/or non-affiliated third parties that may host our products and services, may collect information about your device, such as a device ID or another identifier as permitted by the device manufacturer, when You access the Website. This information is mainly used to aid in identity authentication and verification, and it is not used for advertising.
Information That You Voluntarily Provide. We also collect non-personal information (e.g., your geographic location, etc.) when You voluntarily provide such information to Us. When such information is not combined with any personal information, such information is considered to be non-personal information, as it does not personally identify You or any other user. Additionally, We may aggregate personal information in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify You or any other user of the Website, for example, by using personal information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code. Such aggregate information is considered non-personal information for purposes of this Policy.
