For example, from publicly accessible sources (e.g., property records); directly from a third party, (e.g., credit reporting agencies or customer due diligence providers); or from a third party with your consent (e.g., your bank). We may merge or co-mingle that personal information with the personal information we maintain about you and other data collected on or through our website.

PURPOSES FOR WHICH WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION

In addition to the reasons set forth above, we collect your personal information for the following reasons:

  • Auditing related to a current interaction with the consumer and concurrent transactions, including, but not limited to, counting ad impressions to unique visitors, verifying positioning and quality of ad impressions, and auditing compliance with this specification and other standards;
  • Detecting security incidents, protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, and prosecuting those responsible for that activity;
  • Debugging to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
  • Short-term, transient use; provided that, the personal information is not disclosed to a third party and is not used to build a profile about a consumer or otherwise alter an individual consumer’s experience outside the current interaction, including, but not limited to, the contextual customization of ads shown as part of the same interaction;
  • Performing services on our behalf, including maintaining or servicing accounts, providing customer service, processing or fulfilling orders and transactions, verifying customer information, processing payments, providing financing, providing advertising or marketing services, providing analytic services, or providing similar services on behalf of the business;

LIMITED USE

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably determine we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. For example, we consider de-identification, aggregation, and other forms of anonymization of personal information to be compatible with the purposes listed above and in your interest, because the anonymization of such information reduces the likelihood of improper disclosure of that information.

If you wish to receive an explanation as to how the processing for a particular purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us via the information specified in the Contact section below.

COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

Third parties, including Google and Facebook, may use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies to collect or receive information from our websites and elsewhere on the internet and use that information to provide measurement services and target ads. You can opt-out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting using the options provided in the Opting Out section below. The tracking technologies we utilize include the following:

Cookies. We may use different types of cookies when providing different types of web-related services. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance. Cookies allow us to identify and authenticate visitors, track aggregate behavior, and enable important service features. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Session ID cookies are used to maintain your browser state as you browse through services, and they expire when you close your browser. A persistent Cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period, and we use that to identify you should you return to services and want to find information you had previously entered or accessed.

We also contract with analytics services, third-party affiliate services, and third-party advertising companies to collect similar information. These cookies allow the ad servers to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement and compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.

You may disable cookies through your web browser. For information about opting out of these collection services, please see the Your Choices section below.

Web Beacons/Tags. We automatically collect aggregate anonymous information through files embedded in our services and emails known as “web beacons.” We may deliver a web beacon to you through our services from an advertising network with which we have contracted. Web beacons allow third parties to provide anonymized and aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us. Web beacons also allow us to tell whether email recipients are able to properly view messages or have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to users. We do not tie the information gathered by web beacons to personal information.

Flash LSOs. When we post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as “Flash cookies,” to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount and type of data and how the data is stored. The cookie management tools provided by many popular browsers will not remove Flash cookies. To learn how to manage Flash cookie privacy and storage settings, click here: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html.

Analytics. We may use analytics tools or similar tools provided by third parties (“Data Analytics Providers”) to help analyze how you and other users utilize our services. Analytics tools use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information such as how often users visit services, what pages they visit, and what other websites they used prior to visiting our services. We use the information we get from analytics tools only to improve services. Analytics tools collect the IP address or other unique identifier assigned to you on the date you visited services. We do not combine the information generated through the use of analytics tools with your other personal information. Analytics tools provided by third parties plant a persistent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our website, and the treatment of that information is governed by the third party’s terms of use and/or privacy policy.
