1. PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect and process a range of Personal Information. “Personal Information” means information that uniquely identifies, relates to, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated with or linked to you.
The types of Personal Information we collect may include:
- Contact Information – If you request information on our website, send questions or comments via email, or interact with us through social media platforms, we may collect your contact information. This information may include name, email address, street address, telephone number, company, demographic information, and other similar information.
- Location Data – While navigating our Site your mobile device or browser may share your location data, both through WiFi and GPS. We may collect this information based on the settings of your phone and browser.
- Usage Information – When you access the Site, our servers may automatically record information, including your Internet Protocol address (IP Address), browser type, referring URLs (g., the site you visited before coming to our Site), domain names associated with your internet service provider, information on your interaction with the Site, and other such information.
- Communication Information – We may collect audio, electronic, or visual information, which includes screen sharing views; any data in any files uploaded, emailed or otherwise provided by customers; the contents of your communications with us, whether via e-mail, text messaging, social media, telephone or otherwise, and inferences we may make from other Personal Information we collect.
2. HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
- Directly From You – For example, if you send questions or comments via email or request information from us regarding our services.
- From Third Parties – For example, we may work with business partners, subcontractors, advertising networks, analytics providers, and search information providers, who may provide us with Personal Information about you. Additionally, if you create or log into your account through a third-party social networking site, we will have access to certain Personal Information from that site, such as your name and any other account information disclosed in accordance with the policies of that third party social networking site.
- Most browsers provide you with the ability to block, delete, or disable cookies, and your mobile device may allow you to disable transmission of unique identifiers and location data. If you choose to reject cookies or block device identifiers, some features of the Site may not be available, or some functionality may be limited or unavailable. Please review the help pages of your browser or mobile device for assistance with changing your settings.

- To change your preferences with respect to certain online ads or to obtain more information about ad networks and online behavioral advertising, visit National Advertising Initiative Consumer opt-out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program. Changing your settings with individual browsers or ad networks will not necessarily carry over to other browsers or ad networks. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may still see our ads. Opting-out of targeted advertising does not opt you out of all ads, just those targeted to you.
