Scope of policy
Collection of information
This Platform collects information from its visitors and users in 2 ways: actively and passively. Active information collection refers to instances in which we gather information from you when you register as a user on the Platform, or if you sign up for an electronic newsletter, or if you send us a message via an e-mail reply mechanism provided by this Platform. Active information collection can include both personally identifiable information (e.g., your full name or information that is unique to you) and non-personally identifiable information (e.g., if we were to ask for your first name and a list of the top three things you like about our Platform). Passive information collection refers to instances in which we collect information from you that you have not actively provided. We may use special technologies to passively collect non-personally identifiable information while you are visiting the Platform. These technologies allow us to collect certain kinds of non-personally identifiable information, including but not limited to the type of web browser you use, IP address, time zone, the date and time of your visit, the operating system you use, the specific pages you visit, the address of the website you visited prior to entering the Platform and the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Platform, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Platform, and information about how you interact with the Platform. We do not link this passively collected information with personally identifiable information you have actively provided elsewhere on this Platform. We reserve the right to share with third parties, including our business partners and advertisers, the anonymous aggregated information that we have passively collected via this Platform.
We may collect information identified above, using the following technologies:
– “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. You may have the option to disable cookies on your browsing device.
