For example, you may choose to send us PII about yourself in an email, through our contact page, or some other means.Our Site may collect certain non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”), such as your IP type, IP host address, ISP address, cookie IDs and segment IDs associated with cookie IDs, pages viewed and/or search terms entered, browser type, operating system, duration and frequency of visits, anonymous usage statistics including frequency of messaging and interaction with other users, clickstream data, downloads, anonymized demographic information such as age and gender, and other log file data. Please note that we may use third party service providers, such as Google Analytics, to help operate and provide services in connection with our Site, and these third party service providers will collect Non-PII from our Site as well.
We may use the Non-PII we collect through our Site for a variety of purposes, including to analyze interactions with and performance of our Site and to customize and improve the consumer experience. We may also use Non-PII data from third parties (such as data vendors) pursuant to their own privacy policies, and provide access to or share Non-PII with any number of third parties, including but not limited to business partners, affiliates, and advertising clients. Similarly, we may enhance the Non-PII collected via our Site with Non-PII collected from our business partners.
We may use your PII, as provided by you through the Site, to contact and correspond with you and/or to respond to your inquiries, to operate the Site and provide you with information or services that you have requested, add you to mailing lists and send you emails from time to time, provide you with better ways of accessing information from this Site, or any type of use to which you have specifically consented, either at the time the information is collected or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you.
Cookies & Similar Technology
We may ourselves, or with third party vendors, use Non-PII in connection with our own or vendor information to deliver targeted advertising to you when you visit other websites or our Site. Cookies, clickstream data, and other similar technologies described below may be used in this process. For example, if you are searching for information on a particular product, we or our vendor may cause an advertisement to appear on other websites you view with information on that product. This form of advertising, sometimes called “behavioral advertising,” is based on anonymous information and not on any PII. As a result, we and our vendor know your interests, but do not personally identify you in connection with the delivery of that specific ad. We believe that such advertising is helpful because you will see advertisements that are relevant to your interests.
