WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE GATHER FROM THOSE WHO VISIT OUR SITE?
When you visit the IPO Website or App, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose, and information that we automatically collect as you browse the IPO Website or engage with the App.
Information You Voluntarily Submit. We collect and store any information you enter on an IPO Website and/or App or provide to us in offline contacts we have with you. Information is collected from visitors to an IPO Website or App in the following areas:
- REGISTRATION - If you register for the Service, we will ask you to provide personal information such as your name, address, email and telephone number as well as billing information (including credit card information) in order to establish your Account. You may, however, visit an IPO Website or App without registering but will have limited access to the Site or App, as applicable.
- E-MAIL - On several screens of the IPO Website and App, you also have an opportunity to communicate with us by e-mail. You may also choose to provide your e-mail address to receive communications from us or third parties.
Information Collected and Stored Automatically. When you browse the IPO Website or App, you and your Web browser may also transmit information that we automatically collect. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), the Web pages you visit and the time of your visit and other click-stream data. This information may be combined with other personal information you have provided. The only other type of information automatically provided to us is the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your browser, which we use to improve the performance of the IPO Website and App.
We may also place small data files, called "cookies", in the browser file of your computer's hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with the IPO Website. We use the cookies to record IPO Website statistics. Most browsers automatically accept the cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies. The IPO Website pages may not function properly if you choose not to accept cookies.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use your personal information to open your Account communicate with you if and when necessary in connection with your use of the Service, to respond to your questions or to send you material and information you request. We may use your information to:
- Personalize your site experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product information in which you are most interested.
- Consider your suggestions
- Possibly respond directly to you for clarification
- Process your request for materials if you make one
- Try to and/or answer your questions if you ask them
- Register you for an event, if you request it
We may also use your IPO Website information in order to help diagnose problems with the IPO Website. We may use all information we collect to analyze statistical use patterns and demographic data (basically, where our visitors come from and what demographic characteristics they have) and to improve our IPO Website to better serve our customers. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our IPO Website. Your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information. We may also prepare and keep statistical records and other data about you and other users of our site, but we do that in a way that does not identify you or any other user personally. We may hire third parties to help us collect and analyze such data and we may share such statistical data with third parties. Again, such statistical data will not specifically identify you or any other user. We use this information to help us make our IPO Website more useful to visitors - to learn about the number of visitors to our IPO Website, what part of the IPO Website they are interested in, how long they use the IPO Website and the types of technology our visitors use.
DISCLOSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO OTHERS
Except in the limited circumstances stated in this paragraph, we do not sell, rent, license, trade or otherwise disclose the personal information of IPO Website or App visitors to unaffiliated third parties. We may disclose your information to service providers who assist us in operating the IPO Website or App or conducting our business. We may also share such information among our subsidiaries and affiliates as necessary to provide you with the information and services you request or in which you may otherwise be interested. We may disclose information about you if and when we believe it is necessary to comply with any law, rule, court order, subpoena or warrant, or to enforce our legal rights or the rules of the IPO Website or App, or to protect our business, property and operations, or in connection with a sale, acquisition, merger or other business combination of our business with a third party. We may also disclose non-personally identifiable visitor information to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.
Some areas of the IPO Website or App may allow you to conduct e-commerce transactions. In connection with these transactions, we collect data necessary to complete the transaction that is furnished by you. This information may be furnished to a third party in order to facilitate the transaction.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Since we are committed to your privacy and security, we have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to attempt to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect online. However, please remember that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us or from us and you do so at your own risk. When you place an order or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. Once we receive your transmission, we use our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Our IPO Website and App provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request information about the visitor. You have the following options for reviewing or removing your information from our database to no longer receive communication from us. If you request your account information be deleted from our database, we may maintain information about individual sales transactions for recordkeeping and servicing.
