That information may include Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), mobile device information, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users’ movements around the Website, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Website or the Services again, it will recognize you.
- Pixels. We may use remarketing services (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google) to advertise on third party websites to you after you visited our Website. We, and our third party vendors, may use pixels to inform, optimize and serve ads based on your past visits to our Website. Pixels are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, which are used to track online movements of website users.
