b. Information We Collect Automatically.
We automatically collect information about your device and how your device
interacts with our Service. We may use Service Providers to collect this
information. Some examples of information we collect include the following:
Service Use Data.
We collect data about the features you use, the pages you visit, the
e-mails and advertisements you view, the products you purchase, the
time of day you browse, your referring and exiting pages, and other
Device Connectivity and Configuration Data.
We collect data about the type of device or browser you use, your
device’s operating software, your internet service provider, your
device’s regional and language settings, and other similar information.
This data also includes IP address, MAC address, device advertising Id
(e.g., IDFA or AAID), and other device identifiers.
We collect data about your device’s location, which can be precise
(e.g., latitude/longitude data) or imprecise (e.g., location derived
from an IP address or data that indicates a city or postal code level).
We use various current – and later – developed technologies to collect this
information (“Tracking Technologies”), including the
A log file is a file that records events that occur in connection with
your use of the Service, such as your service use data.
. A cookie is a small data file stored on your device
that acts as a unique tag to identify your browser. We use two types of
cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies make
it easier for you to navigate the Service and expire when you close
your browser. Persistent cookies help with personalizing your
experience, remembering your preferences, and supporting security
features. Additionally, persistent cookies allow us to bring you
advertising both on and off the Service. Persistent cookies may remain
on your device for extended periods of time, and generally may be
controlled through your browser settings.
. A pixel (also known as a web beacon) is code embedded in a website, video, e-mail, or
advertisements that sends information about your use to a server. There
are various types of pixels, including image pixels (which are small
When you access a website, video, e-mail, or advertisement that
contains a pixel, the pixel may permit us or a third party to drop or
read cookies on your browser. Pixels are used in combination with
cookies to track activity by a particular browser on a particular
device. We may incorporate pixels from third parties that allow us
track our conversions, bring you advertising both on and off the
Service, and provide you with additional functionality, such as the
ability to connect our Service with your social media account.
. There are a variety of tracking technologies that
may be included in our apps, and these are not browser-based like
cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. For example, our
apps may include third party SDKs, which is code that sends information
about your use to a server, and is in effect the app version of a
pixel. These SDKs allow us track our conversions, bring you advertising
both on and off the Service, and provide you with additional
functionality, such as the ability to connect our Service with your
social media account.
. GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, and other location-aware technologies may be
used to collect precise location data when you enable location-based
services through your device. Location data may be used for purposes
such as verifying your device’s location and delivering or restricting
relevant content and advertising based on that location.
Some information about your use of the Service and certain Third Party
Services (defined below) may be collected using Tracking Technologies
across time and services and used by us and third parties for business and
or commercial purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and
deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Service and certain
