Anonymous Information. We may collect two types of information through this Site: anonymous information and personally identifiable information. We collect certain anonymous data regarding the usage of the website. This information does not personally identify users, by itself or in combination with other information. We gather it to improve the performance of the Site. The anonymous data we collect can include information such as the type of browser you are using, IP address, the pages you view, your use of the mobile application, and the length of your visit to the Site.
Personally Identifiable Information. We may also ask you to provide personally identifiable information on the Site, which may include your name, address, telephone number, company name, e-mail address, social media addresses, and other relevant information. This information can be gathered when you send us an e-mail or when you complete the specific web page or mobile application request form. In all such cases, you choose whether to provide us with the personally identifiable information, but certain portions of the Site may not be available to you or we may not be able to respond to your inquiry effectively if you do not provide the personally identifiable information requested.
My Account. In order to provide some of the services on the Site, we ask you to provide additional personal information regarding your customer account with COMPANY. This additional information may include existing account numbers, payment or credit card details, service preferences and so forth. We will use this information only to support your customer relationship with COMPANY. This includes responding to your requests, customizing your experience on the Site, communicating with you about your account, and providing you choices about how to view and manage the products and services that you receive from COMPANY.
Customer Service. We may also collect personal information related to customer service correspondence. This information may include e-mails, internet chats, faxes, or telephone calls directed to our customer service department. We process this information to provide you with customer services, handle your complaints or disputes, measure and improve our customer services, and to detect and prevent fraud or violations of our legal obligations. We will only retain customer service information as long as is reasonably required to carry out our business purposes or to comply with applicable legal obligations.
ONLINE ACTIVITY AND TRACKING
Like many websites, the Site employs technologies such as cookies and web beacons (also known as clear GIFs) to automatically receive and store certain information about your use of the Site. We use this information to permit the Site to function properly, to evaluate how you use the Site, to determine where you are located, and to support website analytics and our marketing efforts.
Use of Web Beacons. Web beacons are tiny graphics embedded on a website that allow the website to transfer or collect information through a graphic image request. We may use web beacons to collect information about your web browsing activities to help us determine if a particular webpage on the Site has been visited, and, if so, how many times. We do not tie the information gathered by web beacons to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
Certain pages on our site contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party. We use log files to store the data that is collected through web beacons. COMPANY may also use third party web beacons to help manage online advertising. With both cookies and web beacon technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.
