Here are some examples of the types of Non-Personal Information we may collect and how we may use, share, disclose, transfer and store it.
What Non-Personal Information We May Collect
Internet Protocol (IP) address.Your “IP address” is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data, such as the screens and pages of the Services that you view. We use this information to deliver our screens and pages to you upon request, to tailor the Services to the interests of you and our other visitors, and to measure traffic to and within the Services.
CookiesA “cookie” is a small text file that may be used to collect information about your activity on the Services. For example, when you visit a screen or page on the Services, a cookie is placed on your mobile device, computer, tablet or other machine (if you or your browser accept the cookie). This cookie may then be read by screen or pages on the Services. You may configure or instruct your browser to notify you or to reject and block cookies, but if you do (or if you do not accept cookies), you may not have access to some areas of the Services, or to the personalized features of the Services. Examples of Cookies we use:
- Session Cookies. We use Session Cookies to operate the Services.
- Preference Cookies. We use Preference Cookies to remember your preferences and various settings.
- Security Cookies. We use Security Cookies for security purposes.
- Advertising Cookies. Advertising Cookies are used to serve you with advertisements that may be relevant to you and your interests.
Web BeaconsA “web beacon”, “clear gif”, “web bug”, or “pixel tag” is a tiny graphic file with a unique identifier, that is similar in function to a cookie, but allows us to count the number of users that have visited certain pages or screens of the Services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which may be stored on your computer’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on pages or screens.
In some of our email and text messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Services and/or third-party websites. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on the Services and/or a third-party’s website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email or text messages.
You can enable or disable location services when you use the Services at any time, through your mobile device, computer, tablet or other machine settings.
