If you have additional questions related to our privacy policies and practices, please contact us at 1-855-327-6548.

Hyperlinks/Third-Party Sites and Services

We have agreements with third parties that allow you to go to their website or mobile application from our websites and/or mobile applications. If you go to these sites from our site, you may be asked to give non-public personal information for access to their services or products. You may become a part of that business’ customer base and be subject to their policies regarding the handling of customer data.

Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites or applications, even though our name or logo may appear on those sites and applications. We encourage you to be aware of this when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website and mobile application that you visit, as the privacy policy of those sites may differ from ours. Our privacy statement applies solely to our websites and applications.

Security

Our policy is to restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you only to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you or to provide necessary technical support. We require the employees with access to your nonpublic personal information, including your social security numbers, to use safeguards against unauthorized access, use and unlawful disclosure. We require our employees to adhere to high standards of ethics and integrity in performing their jobs and conducting business. We also require the same standards of confidentiality from the service vendors that assist us. We may use encryption (data scrambling) on some or all public portions of our websites and up to 2048-bit encryption on other portions—typically, where you can enter personally identifiable information. When you are on any website that asks you for confidential information, you should check to see if the information being transmitted is encrypted in order to increase the security of your information.

Logging

In addition to the information you provide us, we collect information about your activities while you are at our site. While you are logged in our site, we log IP addresses (a number assigned to your computer when you use the Internet), browser and platform types, domain names, access times, referral data (the last site or URL you visited before logging into our site and the first site or URL you visit after leaving our site), and your activity while using or reviewing our site. 

Push Notifications

You can choose whether or not to receive mobile push notifications from us. If you subsequently change your mind, you can use your mobile device’s settings functionality to modify your preferences. 

Interest-based ads

Interest-based ads are online ads tailored to your likely interests based on your use of various apps and websites across the Internet. If you are using a browser, then cookies and web beacons can be used to collect information to help determine your likely interests. If you are using a mobile device, tablet, or streaming media device that includes an advertising identifier, then that identifier can be used to help determine your likely interests. For your choices about interest-based ads from us, please see the Cookies section (below).

Cookies

A cookie is a message sent to your browser from a web server that is stored on your computer’s hard drive. The message is sent back to the web server whenever the browser requests a page from that server. Many commercial Internet sites use cookies. While a code in the cookie file enables the site to label you as a particular user, it does not identify you by name or address unless you have provided the site with such information or set up preferences in your browser to do so automatically. You may opt out of accepting cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, rejecting cookies may prevent you from using certain functions and you may have to repeatedly enter information to take advantage of services or promotions. In general, cookies allow us to identify you as a particular user and thus provide you with a more customized service. We may also use cookies to track customer or user requests, inquiries and traffic patterns or to determine audience size and repeated usage. We use web beacons (also known as pixel tags, or transparent GIF files), to help manage online advertising. These files enable us to recognize a unique cookie on your web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our website. With both cookies and other technologies to measure online advertising, 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.

We do not currently support Do Not Track signals but may in the future.

When you visit our website, other parties may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites.  Notwithstanding any other provision, we may work with a third party partner who may collect information from you, such as your IP address and information about your browser or operating system, and may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser for the purpose of enabling interest-based content or advertising to you. The cookies placed by our third party partners contain no personally identifiable information; they may contain demographic or other interest-based data in a de-identified form.  The information in these cookies may be linked to data you voluntarily have submitted to us, such as your name, postal address or email, which we may share in hashed or encrypted form. To opt-out of these data provider cookies, please go to http://www.aboutads.info/choices.

Location-Based Services

To provide location-based services on certain products, we and our service providers may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your mobile device. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices’ approximate location. Unless you provide consent, this location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by us and our service providers to provide and improve location-based products and services. 

Legal Terms

We also recommend you read the applicable terms and conditions for use on our websites and mobile applications that address the content in our sites and information about your responsibilities when using these sites.

Children and Minors

We make no active effort to collect personal information from children and do not wish to receive any such information.  If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 18, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

Changes to Our Privacy Notice

We reserve the right to amend this privacy notice at our discretion and at any time. We will update this privacy policy no less than annually.  When we make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the updated notice on our websites and in our mobile applications and update the notice’s effective date. Your continued use of our website(s) and mobile applications following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.

 

Effective Date: January, 1, 2020
