Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically
We keep track of certain non-identifiable information about you when you visit and interact with our Online Services. For example, we collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, device used to access the Site, browser type, and language, access times and referring websites addresses. We may also use websites analytic tools on our Sites that retrieve information from your browser such as your visiting frequency, features you use, the search terms you enter, the links you click on, the content you down download, and how you interact with the Online Services.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: We automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address as well as information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on our Online Services. “Cookies” are small text files that are placed on your hard disk by a webpage server that allow us to recognize your browser or mobile device and tell us how and when pages and features on our websites are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or mobile device to prevent or limit your computer or device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may limit you from taking advantage of some of our features. You can find out how to do so here: www.aboutcookies.org. When we collect usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Online Services), we only use this data in an aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally directly or indirectly. If you have a Facebook, LinkedIn, or Google+ account, those services may be able to identify that you are on our Sites through the widgets we maintain for each in the header and or footer of most of our Online Services’s pages. This occurs from the cookies that each service places when you use their service.
Google Analytics and Pardot: We also use third-party services such as Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, and Pardot in order to track your activity on our website. The information we collect through these third-party services includes your IP address, your device type and Operating System, your Internet browser, your location, the pages on our Sites you have visited, the actions you’ve performed on these pages. We use such information to better understand your needs and improve our platform accordingly, and also to send you marketing messages that are relevant and match your interests. You can prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics on websites by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on here.
For information on how our advertising partners allow you to opt out of receiving ads based on your web browsing history, please visit http://optout.aboutads.info/.
To opt out of ads on Facebook or Google that are targeted to your interests, use your Facebook or Google Ads settings.
Check your mobile device for settings that control ads based on your interactions with the applications on your device. For example, on your iOS device, enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting, and on your Android device, enable the “Opt out of Ads Personalization” setting.
Please note: Our Online Services do not respond to Do Not Track signals because we do not track our users over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising. However, we believe that you should have a choice regarding interest-based ads served by our partners, which is why we outline the options available to you above.
