Internet protocol (IP) addresses, cookie identifiers, and similar device identifiers are examples of online identifiers.
Clickstream data, technical data, IP geolocation data, usage data, device and operating system used to access the Websites, and information about how you use our Websites, including the pages viewed, browsing history, and time spent on our Websites.
Resources for Information
The company gathers information from our users, including Personally Identifiable Information, at numerous places on our Websites, as detailed below:
Application FormsIf you subscribe to a service on our site that requires financial information, we may ask you to give certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your identity, contact information, and payment information. If you apply for a job, we may ask for your identity, contact information, and information about your career. This information is required to process your applications and contact you.
Surveys or Contests On: On our Websites, we occasionally offer you the chance to participate in contests or surveys. We will seek specific Personally Identifiable Information from you if you experience it. Because participation in these surveys or contests is voluntary, you can disclose this information. Contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic information (such as ZIP code) are frequently required. This information is used to notify contest winners and provide rewards.
Log Files: As with most websites, we automatically collect and store certain information in log files. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements, and collect demographic information about our user base.
Cookies, those itty-bitty text files stored on your computer, are used for record-keeping purposes on this Website. We rely on both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies come in handy, as they effortlessly guide you through our Website. However, they expire once you close your browser. On the other hand, persistent cookies stick around on your hard drive for an extended period. If you ever need to get rid of them, simply follow the guidance in your Internet browser’s “help” file. Rest assured, even if you reject cookies, our site is still accessible to you. Just keep in mind that certain features, such as contests or surveys, may have limited functionality.
Our Websites utilize third-party cookies to optimize user experience. We employ Google Analytics & Webmaster Tools cookies to gain insights into user engagement. We also use Google AdWords & Google Remarketing cookies to track interactions and display personalized ads. For more information about Google cookies, you can visit https://policies.google.com/technologies/cookies and https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads.
Clear GIFs and Similar Technologies: To better manage content on our websites and gain insight into effective range, we utilize a software tool called clear gifs, also known as Web Beacons or Web Bugs. These tiny visual elements, similar in function to cookies, contain a unique identifier and allow us to track the online movements of our website users. Unlike cookies that are saved on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are placed invisibly on websites and are about the size of a period at the end of this sentence. With this approach, we aim to enhance the user experience and deliver engaging content.
We employ clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to help us know which emails recipients have opened. This allows us to measure the effectiveness of certain communications and our marketing strategies.
Information Use and Disclosure
We shall only use and disclose your information (including your Personally Identifiable Information) in the following ways:
Your information will be used to run our Websites.
Your information will be used to react to your direct inquiries. Depending on your preferences, we will interact with you via email or phone.
Your information will be used to deliver special offers, updates, and information about our products and services.
Your information will be used to perform and administer surveys, contests, prizes, and other promotions.
We will use your information to deliver our newsletter if you have registered for it.
We may give our service providers, vendors, and subcontractors access to your information so they can execute services for us. We may, for example, utilize service providers to process payments, conduct and manage surveys, sweepstakes, contests, and promotions, offer email communications services, and keep or process your resume and other information you supply.
We will use your information to send you updates and service announcements regarding your account. For example, if our service is down for maintenance, we may notify you by email.
We will use your information to process payments and provide you with information, products, or services you requested.
We will save the information gathered through cookies, log files, and similar technologies to establish a “profile” of your preferences. We do not share your information with any third parties.
We reserve the right to release personal information where required by law and when we believe it is necessary to protect our rights or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal demand served on our Websites.
We may share your information in order to investigate suspected fraud, harassment, or other violations of any law, rule, or regulation or the Website’s rules.
If the company goes through a business change, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, sale of all or a portion of its assets, or a bankruptcy action, your information will most likely be transferred.
We may share your information with our affiliates to assist us in processing it and for the purposes specified in this policy.
Interest-Based Marketing: In addition to the preceding, we may utilize non-personally Identifiable Information in conjunction with our own or third-party vendor information to offer targeted advertising when you visit other websites. This procedure may employ cookies, clickstream data, and similar technologies, as indicated above. For example, if you seek information on a specific product, we or our vendor may cause an advertisement with information on that product to appear on other websites you visit. This type of advertising, often known as “behavioral advertising,” does not use Personally Identifiable Information. As a result, we and our vendor are aware of your interests but do not individually identify you in connection with the transmission of that particular advertisement. We believe this type of advertising is beneficial since you will see ads relevant to your interests.
Consent: Please remember that if you expressly authorize further uses or disclosures of your Personally Identifiable Information, we may use and disclose that information with your support.
Information in aggregate. We may also aggregate information collected from our users (for example, the number of users in a specific region or with specific characteristics) and use such aggregated information in any permissible manner.
Interest-Based Marketing: We adhere to the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (DAA) self-regulation standards. The online advertising industry offers a tool that allows you to opt out of targeted advertisements from companies participating in self-regulation initiatives. At www.aboutads.info/consumers, you can opt out of receiving targeted advertising from some providers who participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) program. Other providers are Network Advertising Initiative members, and you can opt out of interest-based advertising by visiting http://optout.networkadvertising.org/. Please remember that if you opt out, you will continue getting generic advertising not personalized to your specific interests and activities. To be clear, opt-outs must be conducted on each device and browser from which you desire to be removed. For example, if you opt-out on your desktop browser, you cannot opt-out on your mobile device. You must opt-out on each device and browser separately. You can opt out of targeted advertising delivered through mobile apps by installing the DAA’s AppChoices app on your device, and you can also select a system-level advertising preference feature on your gadget (such as “Limit Ad Tracking” on Apple devices or “Opt-out of Interest-based ads” on Android devices).
Please keep in mind that we do not respond to or honor “do not track” (also known as DNT) signals or equivalent techniques sent by web browsers.
Connections to Other Websites: Our Websites contain links to websites not owned or managed by our company. Please keep in mind that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of third-party websites.
We encourage you to be cautious when leaving our site and to read the privacy statements of each Web site you visit.

Access to Personally Identifiable Information: If your Personally Identifiable Information changes, or if you no longer want our service, you can correct or update it by logging in to My Account and making the change or by contacting us by phone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.
At our company, we prioritize the security of your Personally Identifiable Information (PII). We follow industry-standard security measures during transmission and storage to safeguard your PII. You can trust that we take utmost care to protect your valuable information. However, no Internet transmission or computer storage is 100 percent safe. As a result, while we make every effort to employ commercially reasonable procedures to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot guarantee its total security.
Children’s Information: We do not intentionally collect information from anyone under 13. If we are made aware that such information has been received, we will make reasonable attempts to find and remove it from our records.
Please note that we reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time. We encourage you to check back periodically for updates. In the event of substantial changes to this policy, we will provide explicit notification here.
