TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

In this policy, "personal information" means any information by which you can be specifically identified, located or contacted, such as your name (first and last), address (city, state, zip), email address, or telephone number.

We collect and store certain types of non-personal information whenever you use our Website. This information includes computer and connection information such as statistics on your page views, traffic to and from our Website, referral URL, transaction history, and other automatically collected information. Information that is aggregated or de-identified is considered non-personal information.

COOKIES, WEB BEACONS, AND OTHER SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

Our website uses "cookie" and "web beacon" technology. We use cookies and web beacons to identify your device, distinguish you from other visitors, record your IP address and understand your use of our site, and identify the name of the website from which you linked to Known. This information is used to help us to improve our website design and services. Information obtained through cookies and web beacons may be shared with or obtained by service providers on our behalf. A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. A "session cookie" expires immediately when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). A "persistent cookie" stores information on the hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. When you visit our website, we may use both a session and a persistent cookie. 

We use third-party analytics services on the Website, including Google Analytics. These analytics service providers use cookies or other tracking technologies to help us analyze how users interact with and use our Website, compile reports about activity on Website, and provide us other services. The technologies may collect information such as your IP address, time of visit, whether you are a return visitor, any referring website, and other information. We do not use these analytics service providers to gather information that personally identifies you. The information generated by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google and will be subject to Google’s privacy policies.

We work with third-party companies who also use these technologies to provide features on our Website. These third parties may use these technologies to collect information about you when you use the Website. They may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may also use persistent identifiers to track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond our Website. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. While we do not knowingly provide these entities with information that personally identifies you, such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify you, unknown to us.

Your browser or device may include “Do Not Track” functionality. Our information collection, disclosure practices, and the choices that we provide, will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Policy, whether or not a Do Not Track signal is received.
