Infor­ma­tion We Col­lect About You and How We Col­lect It

We col­lect sev­er­al types of infor­ma­tion from and about users of our Web­site, includ­ing information:

  • By which you may be per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fied, such as name, e‑mail address, and zip code (“per­son­al infor­ma­tion”); and/​or
  • That is about you but indi­vid­u­al­ly does not iden­ti­fy you, such as infor­ma­tion about your inter­net con­nec­tion and the equip­ment you use to access our Website.

We and our ser­vice providers col­lect this information:

  • Direct­ly from you when you pro­vide it to us.
  • Auto­mat­i­cal­ly as you nav­i­gate through the site. Infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly may include usage details, IP address­es, and infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed through cook­ies and oth­er track­ing technologies.

Infor­ma­tion We Col­lect Through Auto­mat­ic Data Col­lec­tion Technologies

As you nav­i­gate through and inter­act with our Web­site, we may use auto­mat­ic data col­lec­tion tech­nolo­gies to col­lect cer­tain infor­ma­tion about your equip­ment, brows­ing actions, and pat­terns, including:

  • Details of your vis­its to our Web­site, includ­ing traf­fic data, approx­i­mate loca­tion derived from your IP address, logs, and oth­er com­mu­ni­ca­tion data and the resources that you access and use on the Website.
  • Infor­ma­tion about your device and inter­net con­nec­tion, includ­ing your IP address, oper­at­ing sys­tem, and brows­er type.

It helps us to improve our Web­site and to deliv­er a bet­ter and more per­son­al­ized ser­vice, includ­ing by enabling us to:

  • Esti­mate our audi­ence size and usage patterns.
  • Store infor­ma­tion about your pref­er­ences, allow­ing us to cus­tomize our Web­site accord­ing to your indi­vid­ual interests.
  • Speed up your searches.
  • Rec­og­nize you when you return to our Website.

The tech­nolo­gies we use for this auto­mat­ic data col­lec­tion may include:

  • Cook­ies (or brows­er cook­ies). A cook­ie is a small file placed on the hard dri­ve of your com­put­er. Cook­ies allow us to col­lect infor­ma­tion such as brows­er type, time spent on the Web­site, pages vis­it­ed and oth­er traf­fic data. We do not cur­rent­ly respond to brows­er do-not-track set­tings. You may refuse to accept brows­er cook­ies by acti­vat­ing the appro­pri­ate set­ting on your brows­er. How­ev­er, if you select this set­ting you may be unable to access cer­tain parts of our Web­site. Unless you have adjust­ed your brows­er set­ting so that it will refuse cook­ies, our sys­tem will issue cook­ies when you direct your brows­er to our Website.
  • Web Bea­cons. Pages of our the Web­site and our e‑mails may con­tain small elec­tron­ic files known as web bea­cons (also referred to as clear gifs, pix­el tags, and sin­gle-pix­el gifs) that per­mit the Com­pa­ny, for exam­ple, to count users who have vis­it­ed those pages or opened an email and for oth­er relat­ed web­site sta­tis­tics (for exam­ple, record­ing the pop­u­lar­i­ty of cer­tain web­site con­tent and ver­i­fy­ing sys­tem and serv­er integrity).
  • Ana­lyt­ics. We use Google Ana­lyt­ics, which uses cook­ies and sim­i­lar tech­nolo­gies to col­lect and ana­lyze infor­ma­tion about use of the Ser­vices and report on activ­i­ties and trends. This ser­vice may also col­lect infor­ma­tion regard­ing the use of oth­er web­sites, apps and online resources. You can learn about Google’s prac­tices by going to www​.google​.com/​p​o​l​i​c​i​e​s​/​p​r​i​v​a​c​y​/​p​a​r​t​ners/, and exer­cise the opt-out pro­vid­ed by Google by down­load­ing the Google Ana­lyt­ics opt-out brows­er add-on, avail­able at https://​tools​.google​.com/​d​l​p​a​g​e​/​g​a​o​ptout.
    In addi­tion, we use Hot­jar in order to bet­ter under­stand our users’ needs and to opti­mize this ser­vice and expe­ri­ence. Hot­jar is a tech­nol­o­gy ser­vice that helps us bet­ter under­stand our users’ expe­ri­ence (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and main­tain our ser­vice with user feed­back. Hot­jar uses cook­ies and oth­er tech­nolo­gies to col­lect data on our users’ behav­ior and their devices. This includes a device’s IP address (processed dur­ing your ses­sion and stored in a de-iden­ti­fied form), device screen size, device type (unique device iden­ti­fiers), brows­er infor­ma­tion, geo­graph­ic loca­tion (coun­try only), and the pre­ferred lan­guage used to dis­play our web­site. Hot­jar stores this infor­ma­tion on our behalf in a pseu­do­nymized user pro­file. Hot­jar is con­trac­tu­al­ly for­bid­den to sell any of the data col­lect­ed on our behalf. For fur­ther details, please see the about Hot­jar’ sec­tion of Hotjar’s sup­port site.

We may tie this infor­ma­tion to per­son­al infor­ma­tion about you that we col­lect from oth­er sources or you pro­vide to us. If we do, we will treat the com­bined infor­ma­tion as per­son­al infor­ma­tion as long as it is combined.
