We collect varying type of information through our Websites and Service. This section explains the various practices that we use to collect the personal information.
(c) Information that is generated from your use of the Service: We may receive information about how and when you use the Services, store it in log files or other types of files associated with your account, and link it to other information we collect about you. This information may include, for example, your IP address, time, date, browser used, and actions you have taken within the Website. This type of information helps us to improve our Services for both you and for all of our users.
(f) Web beacons: We use web beacons on our Websites and in our emails. When we send emails to Visitors or Users, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. This allows us to measure the performance of our email marketing initiatives and to improve our features for specific segments of Visits or Users. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details. We also include Web Beacons in the emails we deliver for our Customers and the Users. We use the data from those Web Beacons to create reports about how your email reach out performed and what actions your Contacts took. Reports are also available to us when we send email to you, so we may collect and review that information.
(g) Information acquired from Other Sources: We may obtain information, including Personal Data, from external sources or third party other than the Service such as public databases, social media platforms, our partners, and third-party integrations. This information is also treated as Personal Information in case it is linked to any Personal Information that we have collected through the Service.
Examples of the information we may receive from other sources include: demographic information, device information (such as IP addresses, OS versions), location, online behavior data, public social profiles, and page views. We use this information alone or in conjunction with other Personal Information we collect, to provide more personalized Service to you, improve our product and service features, and enhance the effectiveness of our marketing and content delivery to you and other Users or Visitors. For example, we use the public social profile information to populate the photo of the individual or an entity to allow you to know your customers better.
(h) Information from the use of Mobile & Tablet Applications: When you use our Service on mobile apps, we may collect certain information in addition to information described elsewhere in this Policy. For example, we may collect information about the type of device and operating system you use. We may ask you if you want to receive push notifications about activity in your account. If you have opted into these notifications and no longer want to receive them, you may turn them off through your operating system. We may ask for, access or track any location-based information from your mobile device only if you want to benefit from our mobile apps; location dependent features. For example, searching nearby contacts based on your current location requires you to provide our mobile app to access your location. We may use mobile analytics software (such as Fabric.io) to better understand how people use our application. We may collect information about how often you use the application and other performance data to improve our mobile features and products.
