Automatic Information:

 

For each visitor to our Platform, our server automatically recognizes information regarding the customer’s domain name (or that of the visitor’s access provider) but not the email address. We may also automatically collect other non-personal information such as the type of browser you are using, the address of the website from which your visit originated, the operating system you are using, the domain name of your internet service provider, the pages you visit on the Platform and the duration of your visit.

When a visitor downloads our platform our servers may automatically recognize the visitors smartphone ID.

Non-Personally Identifiable Data: 


In addition to the Personal Data that we collect (as described in this Privacy Policy), when you interact with the Platform, we receive and store certain information that cannot presently be used to identify you (“non-personally identifiable information”). Such non-personally identifiable information is collected passively using various technologies such as web beacons and may be used to track usage of the Platform. Unless you have registered for the Platform, the non-personally identifiable information we gather through the use of tracking technologies will not be matched with any Personal Data. The Platform may store such non-personally identifiable information itself or such non-personally identifiable information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Company affiliates, agents or service providers. The Company may use and share such non-personally identifiable information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Platform, the number of visitors to each page of our Platform, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process of collecting non-personally identifiable information.

 

In operating the Platform, we may use standard technologies, including “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Platform gives to your browser when you access the Platform. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Platform and help us analyze Platform usage more accurately. For instance, our Platform may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Platform without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Platform. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission, which you may set through your web browser. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Platform’s features.

The Do Not Track browser setting

We support the Do Not Track browser setting. Do Not Track (or DNT) is a preference you can set in your browser to let the websites you visit know that you do not want them collecting certain information about you.
