What information we collect, how we collect it, and why.
Much of what you likely consider personal information is collected directly from you when you:
Complete contact forms or request newsletters or other information from us (ex: email)
Participate in contests and surveys or participate in activities we promote that might require information about you
However, we also collect additional information when delivering our Services to you to ensure necessary and optimal performance. These methods of collection may not be as obvious to you, so we thought we’d highlight and explain a bit more about what these might be (as they vary from time to time):
Cookies and similar technologies on our website allow us to track your browsing behavior, links clicked, items purchased, your device type, and to collect various data, including analytics, about how you use and interact with our Services. These technologies automatically collect data when you use and interact with our Services, including metadata, log files, cookie/device IDs, page load time, server response time, and approximate location information to measure website performance and improve our systems, including optimizing DNS resolution, network routing and server configurations. Specifically, interactions with the features, content and links (including those of third-parties, such as social media plugins) contained within the Services, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used, information about browser configuration and plugins, language preferences and cookie data, information about devices accessing the Services, including type of device, what operating system is used, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and error data is collected. All this allows us to provide you with more relevant product offerings, a better experience on our sites and mobile applications, and to collect, analyze and improve the performance of our Services. We may also collect your location (IP address) so that we can personalize our Services.

If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

"Do not track" notifications
Some browsers allow you to automatically notify websites you visit not to track you using a “Do not track” signal. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do not track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, we currently do not alter our practices when we receive a “Do not track” signal from a visitor’s browser.
