We collect information you provide to us directly through our Sites and Services. Personal information that we collect may include names, dates of birth, telephone numbers, mailing addresses, email addresses, payment information, amongst others.
We also use webpage code referred to as “action tags” to identify some of the pages that you visit, which shows how you interact with the content on those pages. Action tags may be placed in advertisements that are served on our behalf on the Sites and third-party sites, to track your interaction. We may use action tags in our emails to determine whether an email was opened or whether it was forwarded to someone else. For example, we may configure action tags to collect information about which sections of the Sites you visited, when you view or print a page, how long you stayed on the Sites, or on which links or advertisements you clicked.
We may also use pixel tags (also called beacons or pixels), which are small blocks of code installed on (or called by) a webpage, app, or advertisement that can retrieve certain information about your device and browser. This is usually used by third parties from a domain that they do not themselves operate, typically with the permission of the domain owner.
Our mobile applications may include technologies that collect information regarding you, your device, and your activities. Some of our applications may incorporate third-party software development kits (“SDKs”) and application program interfaces (“APIs”), which collect information to facilitate our Services and services provided by third parties.

California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses that share customer personal information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes to respond to requests from California customers asking about the business practices related to such information-sharing. Alternately, such businesses may put in place a policy not to disclose a customer’s personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an option to opt out of such information-sharing.
At this time, we do not honor do-not-track signals, however, we have provided you with the option to opt out from behavioral advertising. Please see our About Online Advertising page for more information.
