You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our Website/App because such information may be required in order for you to register; to use our services; purchase products or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or lotteries; ask a question; or initiate other transactions on our Website/App. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship e-mail communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys.

 

Blogs, bulletin boards, reviews and chat rooms

 

We may provide areas on our Website/Apps where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others, as well as post reviews of products, establishments, contractors, and the like, or upload content (e.g. pictures, videos, audio files, etc.). Such postings are governed by our Terms & Conditions of Trade & Website/APP Use.  In addition, such postings may appear on other websites or mobile applications or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly viewable web or app pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.

Linked information:

 

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record keeping purposes. Cookies can be either session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires when you close your browser and is used to make it easier for you to navigate our Website/App. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.

 

For example, when you sign in to our Website/App, we will record your user or member ID and the name on your user or member account in the cookie file on your computer. We also may record your password in this cookie file, if you indicated that you would like your password saved for automatic sign-in. For security purposes, we will encrypt any usernames, passwords, and other user or member account-related data that we store in such cookies. In the case of websites, mobile applications  and services that do not use a user or member ID, the cookie will contain a unique identifier. We may allow our authorized service providers to serve cookies from our Website/App to allow them to assist us in various activities, such as doing analysis and research on the effectiveness of our Website/App, content and advertising.

 

You may delete or decline cookies by changing your browser settings. (Click “Help” in the toolbar of most browsers for instructions.) If you do so, some of the features and services of our Website/App may not function properly.

 

We may allow third-parties, including advertising companies and ad networks, to display advertisements on our Website/App. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements. Our Website/App does not provide any personal information to these third parties, but they may collect information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw and/or clicked on the advertisements they deliver, and possibly associate this information with your subsequent visits to the advertised websites or mobile applications. They also may combine this information with personal information they collect from you. The collection and use of that information is subject to the third-party’s privacy policy. This information allows them to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness.

 

Web/App beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web or app users or to access cookies. Unlike cookies which are stored on the user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on the web pages (or in email) and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

 

Web/app beacons may be used to deliver or communicate with cookies, to count users who have visited certain pages and to understand usage patterns. We also may receive an anonymous identification number if you come to our Website/App from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website or mobile application.
