Information that is automatically collected
In addition to any Personal Data or other information that you choose to submit through the Site, we, and our vendors, may use a variety of tracking technologies (such as cookies) that automatically or passively collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Site. This type of usage information may include the browser you are using, your IP address or other unique identifier, pages that you visit, and the time of the visit. For example, we’ve implemented Google Analytics Advertising features such as dynamic remarketing, interest-based advertising, audience targeting, behavioral reporting, demographics and interests reporting, user segment analysis, device reporting, display advertising, and video ads reporting. These ad technology companies and advertisers may use, store, or access first-party and third- party cookies and other tracking technologies to collect or receive from the Site and elsewhere on the Internet and use that information to create a profile of you, measure your interests, detect your device, personalize your content, and provide advertising services to us, including advertisements targeted to your interests.
