This includes information you provide when you request information via the Site, when you register for an account using the App, and when you input information into the App as you use it. You can always choose not to provide certain information, but your use of some of our features may be limited or restricted if you choose to do so. We use the information that you provide for our own, internal business purposes, such purposes as responding to your requests, providing the Services, and communicating with you.

We may receive certain technical information when you use our Services, including browsing information (date, time, page views), usage data (queries, data usage), your device identifier and IP address, and notifications when you open emails that we send you. We use this information to provide the Services to you, to customize your experience using the Services, and/or improve the Services over time.

Information from Mobile Devices:

When you access or use our Services using a mobile device, we may receive additional information about and from that mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device.

Cookies and Anonymous Identifiers:

We use various technologies to collect and store information about your use of the Services through the use of cookies, web beacons and other anonymous identifiers. Cookies are small data files that are stored on the hard drive of the computer or device you use to view a web site. Every computer or device that accesses the Services may be assigned a unique cookie by us. Web Beacons are graphic image files imbedded in a web page typically used to monitor activity on a web page and send back to its home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party) information from your browser, such as your IP address, the URL of the page on which the web beacon is located, the type of browser that is accessing the site and the ID number of any cookies on your computer previously placed by that server. The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.

Server Logs:

When you use our Services, we may automatically collect and store information, including the categories of information summarized above, in our server logs. This may include details of how you used our Services, such as number and type of queries, IP address, device event information, and cookies and other anonymous identifier information.

Local Storage:

In addition to collecting and storing information in our servers, we may collect and store your information (including personal information) locally on your device using technologies such as browser web storage and application data caches.

We access and use your information for the specific purposes described above, and more generally for the purposes described below:

  • To provide you with the Services.

  • To communicate with you about your account and your transactions with our Services.

We engage the services of other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include hosting, marketing and social media functions (including sending surveys, email, and other communications), analyzing data, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing payments, and providing customer service. These providers have access to personal information on an as-needed basis to perform the specific function for which they were engaged, but they may not use personal information for any other purposes.

We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information with the public and/or third parties (such as partners, investors, advertisers, and service providers).

Corporate Transactions:

In the event that we are involved in a corporate event, such as a merger, acquisition, asset sale or an investment event, we may share your information with those parties on an as-needed basis, provided that all such parties must be subject to a contractual obligation to keep that information confidential, and provided that you will be given notice before your information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
