Personal and Other Information

What is “Personal Information”?

“Personal Information” is information about a user of the Website that is personally-identifiable to the user, such as the name, address, email address, telephone number and other information specific to the user. Personal information about a user is provided by the user when they use the Website. We may also collect and process information about a user’s actual location, using the user’s IP address, GPS, and other methods using sensors in nearby equipment, such as Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.

The information described above is referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Personal Information” because it identifies or describes individual or personal aspects about the user.

The Website and its content are not directed to children under the age of 13. In the event that We learn that We have unknowingly collected Personal Information from a child under the age of 13 without parental consent, We will delete that information as quickly as reasonably possible.

What Types of Non-Personal Information Do We Collect?

Other information can be collected from the user’s use and navigation of the Website – such as device-specific information — for example, a user’s hardware type, operating system version, unique device identifiers (UUID), mobile network information, and server log information (typically, a user’s IP address, browser type, browser language, date and time of request and cookies – discussed separately below).

This type of information is referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Anonymous Information” because it does not identify or describe individual personal aspects about the user, but nevertheless can be collected based on the user’s use of the Website.
