Automated Collection of Data
When you visit our apps and websites (collectively, our “Sites”), we may obtain certain information by automated means, such as cookies, web server logs, web beacons, and other technologies. “A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.
The information we obtain in this manner may include your device IP address, identifiers associated with your devices, types of devices, web browser characteristics, device characteristics, language preferences, clickstream data, and dates and times of visits to the Sites. These technologies help us (1) remember your information so you will not have to re-enter it; (2) track and understand how you use and interact with our Sites; (3) tailor the Sites around your preferences; (4) measure the usability of the Sites; (5) understand the effectiveness of our communications; and (6) otherwise manage and enhance the Sites.
Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of our Sites. Our Sites are not designed to respond to “do not track” signals received from browsers.
