This Section informs you how and why the Company collects, uses, and shares information about you when you access the Company's Website and/or Platform.
The Company collects information you provide directly to the Company when you access the Website or Platform. Some of this information (e.g. your username and password) is required for you to use the Website and Platform. The Company makes an effort to limit the amount of personally identifiable information that is collected about each User. Information that you give to us includes, without limitation:(a) The information used to create your account (e.g. IP address, username, password, and e-mail address);
When you access the Website or Platform, the Company automatically collects some information from you. This may include information like your IP address, user-agent string, browser type, operating system, referral URLs, device information, pages visited, links clicked, requested URLs, hardware settings, and search terms.
Except for the IP address used to create your account, the Company keeps IP logs for ninety (90) days.
The Company may employ cookies, which are data your browser stores and sends back to the Company when making requests. This information is used to improve user experience, understand user activity, and personalize the content of search results and advertisements. This enables the Company to improve the quality of the Website and Platform and the services they provide.
The Company uses information about you to improve your user experience. For example, the Company uses your zip code to determine which retail stores are near your location. Also for example, if you provide demographic information to the Company and search for a product by popularity, the Company may (at your option) use this information to weight search results that are popular within your demographic.
The Company also anonymizes your information and uses it with other users' anonymized information to generate aggregate reports. For example, the Company may analyze that anonymous aggregate information to determine which retail stores have the highest volume of product availability inquiries. This anonymous aggregate information does not contain a link between the data and identifiable information about you (e.g. your username, e-mail address, password, IP address).
The Company also sells the anonymous aggregate information that contains your information, along with the information of other users. This information is provided to third parties so that they can improve their own products and services. For example, if the Company observes a high volume of product availability inquiries for a specific product, the Company may wish to sell that information to the producer of that product. When the Company engages in any sale of a dataset containing your information, the recipient of that dataset is never able to personally identify you.
As discussed below, the Company never sells personally identifiable information about you.
The Company takes reasonable measures consistent with generally accepted business practices to protect your information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized disclosure.
Due to the nature and content of the Website and Platform, Children under 13 are strictly forbidden from accessing the Website, regardless of parental supervision.
The Company believes that what you do on the internet is your business. At the same time, it is necessary to collect at least some means of identifying and communicating with users. But this goal can be achieved without the collection of information that can be used to personally identify a distinct person. Thus, the Company does not collect or require:(a) Your name, street address, or telephone number - we don't need it and nor does anyone else;
