In addition to personal information that you choose to provide, our web servers collect the domain names of all visitors.
How We Use the Information
We use your information for purposes of processing your purchase of or registration for our offerings or other programs. This may include our use of your information to supply products or services and/or carry out the terms of our agreements with you. We may use your information in an aggregated manner. This means that your information is combined with information of other individuals to create group data without identification of any individual customer or individual customer information. We use this aggregated data to evaluate and improve our offerings.
We also use your information to operate, evaluate and improve our business (including developing new products and services; enhancing and improving our services; managing our communications; analyzing our products; performing data analytics; and performing accounting, auditing, billing reconciliation and collection activities and other internal functions) and to perform data analysis and other analyses and processing (including market and consumer research, trend analysis, financial analysis, anonymization, encryption and tokenization of personal information).
We also use your information to protect against fraud and other unlawful activity, claims and other liabilities and to comply with applicable legal requirements.
When you download our apps through an app platform, information you submit in connection with your download is collected by the platform operator, who does not share that information with us.
We may also use your information in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.
We may use third party web analytics services on our sites, such as those of Google Analytics. The service providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to help us analyze how visitors use a site. The information collected through these means (including IP address) is disclosed to these service providers, who use the information to evaluate use of the sites. To learn more about Google Analytics and how to opt out, please visit www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
Our sites are not designed to respond to “do not track” signals received from browsers.
Information We Share
Where warranted by an offering or transaction, we will disclose your information as appropriate to enable your participation in the offering or transaction. We will also share your information with service providers who perform services on our behalf in connection with such offerings or transactions. We do not authorize these service providers to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements.
In addition, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or (iv) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity. We may transfer or share information about you to our affiliates in other countries. We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution or liquidation).
How We Protect Personal Information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. Because submissions of information over the Internet are never entirely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of information you submit via the Internet and such submissions are made at your own risk.
