2.2 Information that we collect automatically

When you visit the App, we also may collect certain information by automated means using technologies such as cookies, non-cookie-based tokens, web server logs, tracking pixels, and web beacons. Cookies are files that websites send to your computer or other Internet-connected device to identify your browser uniquely or to store information or settings in your browser. Your browser may tell you when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict or disable certain cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features of our App and may not be able to purchase products that use a “shopping cart.” Non-cookie-based tokens are encoded URL-based identifiers that track e-mail click-thru activity or time-sensitive password reset keys and will work in scenarios where cookies are disabled or a session has not been initiated.

Our web servers may log information such as your operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. The web server logs may also record information such as the address of the web page that referred you to our App and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. They may also log information about your interaction with the Sites, such
as which pages you visit. To control which web servers collect information by automated means, we may place tags called “web beacons” — small files that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies. We may also collect information from your browser, such as your browsing history, and use it in conjunction with data gathered from forms and e-mails to help us understand and respond to your needs.

Where the information gathered is completely anonymized, the information will not constitute personal data. Where your personal data is not in an anonymous form, our legal basis for processing your personal data in this way is that it is in our legitimate interest to continually evaluate that personal data in operating and improving our business that is not overridden by your interests, rights and freedoms to protect personal data about you.

The App includes social media functions, such as Google, Twitter and Facebook widgets. These widgets may collect information about which pages you visit on the App and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. The widgets may also set a cookie to ensure the features are functioning properly.

Social media functions and widgets are hosted either by a third party or directly on the App. Your interactions with the social media functions and widgets located on the App are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them. If you use any of the social media functions or widgets on our App, we strongly suggest you review the privacy policies of the companies that provide those functions and features.

2.3 Information that we obtain from third parties

Where permitted by law, we may acquire personal data about you from third parties. This may include personal data shared between the App and business partners, publicly-available profile information (such as your preferences and interests) on third-party social media sites (such as Facebook and Twitter), and marketing lists acquired from third-party marketing agencies.

Information that we collect from third parties will generally consist of publicly-available profile information (such as your preferences and interests), for example from public social media posts.
