We may automatically collect the following information about your use of our Site and Services through cookies and other technologies: your domain name; your browser type and operating system; web pages you view and how long your view them; links you click; your IP address; the type of device and device ID; the length of time you visit our Site or Services; and the referring URL or the webpage that led you to our Site. We may combine this information with other information that we have collected about you, including, where applicable, your user name, name, and other personal information.
This information helps us to improve our Services and to deliver a better and more personalized Site and Services including enabling us to:
We may use or partner with other third-party companies, agents, or contractors for various purposes in connection with our business and operations (“Service Providers”), including billing and payments, error tracking, relationship building, the marketing and growth of our business, and the performance of services on our behalf, such as gathering and analyzing information and the provision of our Services to you. In the course of performing these responsibilities and providing such services, these other companies may have access to your information. We may also share information, including your information, with these Service Providers in order to enable them to perform these responsibilities and to provide these services.
How We Use Your Information
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information:
Disclosure of Your Information.
We may disclose aggregated information about customers and users of the Site, and information that does not identify any individual or specific customer, without restriction.
We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this Policy:
We may also disclose your personal information:
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Site and Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at our Site and Services. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Site and Services. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Site.
Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity. Some of these persistent cookies expire after a certain period of time, but others remain on your computer indefinitely.
We may also collect information using web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels”). Web beacons are electronic images or other computer codes that may be used in our Site or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and the effectiveness of our communications, and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon.
Third Party Analytics.
Our Site may contain links to third-party websites. Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party websites. We are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites.
California Do Not Track Disclosure
Your web browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. We do not currently honor web browser “Do Not Track” signals and other mechanisms that provide you with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.
Information Choices and Changes
We offer the following ways for you to manage our use of your personal information:
If you register for the Services and create an account with us, you have the ability to (a) update or delete your account at any time and (b) opt-out of receiving emails and other communications from us.
Data Subject Requests
You may send us an email at email@example.com if you have a question about our privacy practices or want to access, obtain a copy of, review, correct, or request deletion of your personal information; we will honor such requests to the extent required by law, provided that we may retain your personal information if required to comply with law, legal process, or legal obligations or to the extent permitted by applicable law.
Storage, Retention, and Transfer of Your Information
We may store any information that we collect (personal or otherwise) ourselves or in databases owned and maintained by us, our affiliates, agents, or Service Providers. If you access or use the Site or Services outside of the United States, information that we collect about you may be transferred to servers inside the United States. By allowing us to collect information about you, you consent to us processing and transferring information in and to the United States and other countries whose data-protection and privacy laws may offer fewer protections than those in your home country. We generally retain personal information for as long as necessary to provide the Services or fulfill the purpose of collecting that information, although we may retain information for a longer period if such retention is required to comply with applicable law. If you request deletion of your account, we will generally delete the personal information and postings associated with that account, unless we are required to keep that information by law (for example, if we have received a court order or subpoena to produce such information).
No one under age 16 may provide any information on or through the Site. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If you are under 16, do not use or provide any information on or through the Site. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome your comments or questions about this Policy. You may contact us at email@example.com or at our address: 2926A Foster Creighton Dr, Nashville, TN 37204.
