Types of Information We Collect
We do not collect personally identifiable information from you that can uniquely identify you, such as your name, address, and email address, unless you affirmatively choose to provide us with such information. We may, however, collect information regarding your visit that does not personally identify you, such as the time and duration of your visit, as well as pages visited. This information helps us improve our website and the services we offer to our website visitors and is not used to contact you or to send you marketing or other materials.
When you visit the Site, we may also collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. We may also use third-party website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) that collect information about user traffic on the Site. The information we may collect by automated means may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- information about the devices you use to access the Internet (such as the IP address and the type of the device, operating system, and web browser);
- dates, times and duration of visits to the Site (including whether you are a repeat or first time visitor); and
- information on actions taken on the Site (such as page views and site navigation patterns).
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if you have engaged us to provide services for you on a third party platform, this policy does not limit our usage of information made available to us on such third party platform.
