THIRD PARTIES PROVIDE YOUR INFORMATION TO US

We may collect Personal Information from sources other than you, such as other users, our third-party services providers, and other business partners.

WE MAY COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION USING TECHNOLOGY

When you use our Services, we and third-party service providers acting on our behalf may use technology to collect and store information about you, including, without limitation, your geographic location, IP address, browser type, ISP, referral and exit pages, clickstream data, and information related to your device, such as hardware models and IDs, device type, operating system version, the request type, the content of your request, and basic usage information about your use of our Services, such as date and time. We may also collect and store information locally on your device using mechanisms, such as browser web storage and application data caches.

We and third-party service providers acting on our behalf may collect and store such information through a variety of technical methods, including, without limitation, sending cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, and other anonymous identifiers to your device. “Cookies” are pieces of data stored on your computer, mobile phone, or other device. A “web beacon” is a type of technology that lets us know if you visited a certain page or whether you opened an email. A “pixel tag” is a type of technology placed within a website or email for the purpose of tracking activity, which is often used in combination with cookies. Other “anonymous identifiers” are random strings of characters used for the same purposes as cookies, such as with mobile devices where cookie technology is not available. These technologies help us provide you with features, products, and services based on your preferences, understand when you are interacting with our Services, and compile other information regarding your use of our Services.

We do not control the use of the forgoing technologies or the resulting information.
