- Information We Collect. We collect information in two ways, directly from your input into the Website, and automatically.
2.1 Information Provided By You. We may collect and store any personal information you provide to us. This may include identifying information, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information. If you contact us, we will keep an internal record. From time-to-time, we may provide you with the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys. If you choose to participate, we may request certain personal information from you. Participation in these contests or surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose the requested information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
2.2 Information Collected Automatically.
(a) We collect non-personally identifiable information automatically for the primary purpose of customizing the Website, understanding how it is used, and preventing misuse. For example, when you use access the Website, we automatically record information from your device, its software, and your activity using the Website. This may include, but is not limited to the date and time of your access to the Website, your device’s internet protocol (“IP”) address, geographical information, device type, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, metadata concerning files included in the information submitted to us, and other interactions with the Website.
(b) Some devices allow applications to access real-time location-based information (for example, GPS or sensor data from your device that may provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers). In addition, some of the information we collect from you, for example IP address, can sometimes be used to approximate a device’s location. If you do not wish us to receive this information, please configure your devices not to share it.
(c) We use mobile device IDs (the unique identifier assigned to a device by the manufacturer), or Advertising IDs (for iOS 6 and later) to recognize you. We do this to track your use of the Website. Device IDs cannot be deleted, but Advertising IDs can be reset in “Settings” on your iPhone. Ad companies also use device IDs or Advertising IDs to track your use, track the number of ads displayed, measure ad performance and display ads that are more relevant to you. Analytics companies use device IDs to track information about usage.
