Information We Collect Automatically
When you use our Services, our servers automatically collect certain browser or device-generated information by using various types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons”. This information includes, but is not limited to:
- Your IP address or other device addresses or IDs
- Web browser and/or device type
- The pages or other content you view or interact with on the Services
- The server from which you are accessing our Services
- The date, time, and place of accessing our Services.
We may also use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you have opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message.
Information We Collect from Third-Parties
Third-Party Web Beacons and Third-Party Buttons. We may implement third-party content or advertising on the Services that may use clear gifs or other forms of web beacons, which allow the third-party content provider to read and write cookies to your browser in connection with your viewing of third-party content on the Services.
Additionally, we may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may allow third parties to collect information about you through such third parties’ browser cookies, even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties, and we do not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by a third-party in this manner is subject to that third-party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
Analytics. We may work with different companies that offer services that can assist us in better understanding how users interact with and use the Services. For example, we may use a product called Google Analytics by permitting Google to use technologies such as web beacons and cookies to collect certain non-personally identifiable information that helps us understand your usage of our Services. We may permit Google and other third-party analytics providers to combine information collected through our Services with information collected from third-party services, and these analytics providers may use this information to help us better understand our users. These analytics providers may also use this information to help their other customers better understand their users.
