Other Information We May Collect
“Other Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an identifiable individual, such as:
- Browser and device information;
- Internet Protocol (“IP”) address;
- Pages visited;
- Average time spent on the Website;
- Information collected through cookies and other technologies; and
- Aggregated information.
How We May Collect Other Information
We may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:
Through your browser or device. Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, and Internet browser type and version. We use this information to ensure that the Website and its services function properly.
Through your use of the Website. When you visit the Website, we may track and collect Website usage data, such as your search history.
IP Address. Your “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP Address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Website, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. We may use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels of the Website, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Website and its associated services.
From you. Information, such as your preferred means of communication, is collected when you voluntarily provide this information.
By aggregating information. Aggregated Personal Information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Website (for example, we may aggregate Personal Information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular zip code).
How We May Use and Disclose Other Information
We may use and disclose Other Information for any lawful purpose, such as for research, reporting and analytic purposes and to improve the Website.
If we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we may use it for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information.
In some instances, we may combine Other Information with Personal Information (such as by combining your name with the state in which you live). If we combine any Other Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information as long as it is combined.
Third Party Services
We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information that we maintain within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be fully secure.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where you have chosen a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You should not share your password with anyone.
If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
