B. Non-Personal Information
We also may collect various types of non-personal information to help us make your experience more enjoyable, measure site activity to identify future improvements that should be made and compile aggregate data to help serve site visitors better.
When you access our Website and/or use of any of our products and/or services offered by us, we may automatically (i.e. not by registration) collect non-personal information (e.g. type of Internet browser and operating system used, domain name of the website from which you came, number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed).
For example, we may use session and persistent “cookies”, “IP Addresses”, session logs, web beacons, GIF/pixel tags, banner ads, third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), third party retargeting networks that may display our advertisements to you on other sites that you visit to remind you about us, and third party networks that serve user-requested emails (e.g., for a refer-a-friend email) to collect non-personal or other aggregated information about site visitors to gain a better understanding of how site visitors use our Website.
To maintain our quality of service and to assist in the analysis of product performance, we may gather data on connection information, including the timing and size of all products and/or services sent over the internet during a session. The gathered information is used only to ensure the highest quality experience possible when using our products.
Our products, desktop tools and mobile applications use analytical tools to understand feature usage patterns, to enhance and improve your user experience and offer you specific usage tips and guidance. In connection with normal business operations, as well as to increase functionality and enhance your user experience, this usage information may be linked to personal information that we have about individual users. We maintain ownership of this non-personal information and we do not share this type of information about individual users with third parties.
We may also conduct surveys and ask users to volunteer demographic information to be used on an aggregate basis for internal market research, presentation to advertisers and joint research projects with outside companies involved in product development. We use such information to better focus our product and personalize the scope of services offered to each individual user.
Please note that you may choose to configure the settings on your computer or device or web browsers to delete or block the cookies. However, choosing to do so may reduce the functionality of the Website, the quality and efficiency of delivery of the services and/or products or from having access to some functions and/or services on our Website or the web-hosted software that runs on our Website. In such an event, we shall not be held liable for the interruption, non-provision or loss of products and/or services and/or for any losses and/or damages arising therein.
2. Third Party Actions
While we are not liable for any of the actions of those third parties, you should feel free to give us feedback from time to time on your experiences with any third parties to whom we work with so that we may enhance our future service to all customers/users. For avoidance of doubt, the inclusion of such a link does not imply endorsement of the site by or any association with its operators.
3. Children’s Privacy
4. IP Addresses
We may use your IP address to help prevent fraud, to help diagnose problems with our server, to gather broad demographic information, and to offer you our products and/or services.
5. Commitment to Data Security
All information collected from you is stored and processed in a technically and physically secure environment. Whilst we will use our best endeavours to maintain a security plan deemed adequate by us to protect your Personal Data, we make no guarantee that the Website will be free from security breaches, especially due to unauthorised actions of third parties such as, but not limited to spoof attacks, session hacking, sniffing or tampering. Furthermore, employees, contractors, and vendors who have access to your Personal Data in connection with providing services for us are required to keep the information confidential.
When a user is asked to provide his/her credit card information, we provide a secure environment through our partners’ systems using industry standard SSL encryption or SET protocols to protect sensitive information online, and we do everything we can to protect user information offline. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take reasonable measures to protect your Personal Data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the Personal Data that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Once any Personal Data comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Any Personal Data supplied by you shall be retained by us as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes stated in paragraph 1 above or as required to satisfy any legal regulatory, accounting requirements or to protect our interests.
