Collecting Your Information
We may collect information about you when conducting our business, including when you contact us, seek information from us, or use our website. The information that we collect may include, but is not limited to:
- Your name, address and other contact details;
- social security, driver’s license, or tax identification number;
- account information, assets, transaction and/or income information, materials necessary to verify personal information (e.g., copies of passports or utility bills);
- demographic information, such as age, gender, date of birth, nationality, place of birth, and other information (including potentially sensitive information) that may be derived from the information and documentation that we collect; and,
- website usage and device information, such as browser type, operating system, referring or exit web pages, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer.
We may supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third-party sources. For example, if permitted under applicable law, we may supplement your information with address standardization data to verify the address you have entered is actually your address.
When you visit the Website or use our Service, we (or our service providers) may automatically collect certain information sent to us by your computer, mobile device, or any other device. This information may include the type of device you use, operating system, the device identifier (or "UDID"), your IP address, location, mobile network information, and standard web log information, such as your browser type traffic to and from our site, the pages you accessed on our Website, and other available information. We may also collect information about your use and interaction with the Website, our mobile application, or our Service. For example, we may evaluate your computer, mobile phone, or other access device to identify any malicious software or activity that may affect the availability of the Services. When you use the Services, we may also store information based on your usage history. This includes, but is not limited to, content you viewed, event information, click stream information, and cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your account.
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” menu.
We employ (and/or our third-party advertising partner employs) a software technology called clear gifs (sometimes known as web beacons or web bugs), that help us better manage content on the Site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies and similar devices. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or similar device, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies or similar devices will probably not be able to access those pages or the related products and services.)
