What is Personal Information?
Personal Information is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as a name, address, telephone number, email address, or other account numbers, and information about that individual’s activities when directly linked to that person, such as information about his or her use of the Service. Personal Information also includes demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic location and preferences when such information is linked to other Personal Information that identifies you. Personal Information does not include “aggregate” or “anonymized” information. Aggregate or Anonymized Information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use the Service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same Service. Aggregate Information helps us understand trends and our users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor the Service.
Personal Information We Collect
We collect Personal Information when an account is created or you contact us for technical support or otherwise for any reason. We may also automatically collect some information, such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your mobile device id, your computer’s operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring website, the time and date of your visit, and various types of “clickstream” information (about your interactions with the Service, such as entry and exit points for the Service, search terms, page views and impressions).
We treat this information as Personal Information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above. Furthermore, we may also collect billing and credit card information in connection with your use of the Service as well as your delivery address, billing address and other payment information. All such credit card transactions are encrypted and your billing and credit card information is collected and stored by us or a trusted third party. Any third party credit card vendor will be prohibited from using this information for any purpose other than storing the credit card.
Cookies, IP Addresses and URLs
We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, when you visit or use the Service, we automatically collect your IP address and the type of browser you use. Information may be automatically collected through the use of “cookies” which are discussed in more detail below.
