Some of our automatic collection is facilitated by cookies and similar technologies. Cookies are text files stored on a visitor’s device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser for the purpose of helping you navigate between pages efficiently and remembering your preferences, enabling functionality, helping us understand user activity and patterns, facilitating online advertising and measuring the effectiveness of our ads. Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They are erased from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you’ve closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser.
Our automatic data collection may also be facilitated by web beacons and software development kits. Web beacons, also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs, are typically used to demonstrate that a webpage or email was accessed or opened, or that certain content within it was viewed or clicked, typically to compile statistics about usage of websites and the success of marketing campaigns. Software development kits, or SDKs, are third-party computer codes used in connection with our App for a variety purposes, including to provide us with analytics regarding the use of our App, to integrate with social media, add features or functionality to our App, or to facilitate online advertising. SDKs may enable third parties to collect information directly via our App.
