PERSONAL AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
WHAT IS NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION AND HOW IS IT COLLECTED AND USED?
Non-personal information is data that does not identify you personally. If you visit this website to read information, such as about one of our services or product offerings, we may gather non-personal information about you from your computer’s web browser. Basically, non-personal information is data that is not personally identifiable. This means that non-personal information does not directly identify who you are or be linked to you personally in any way, therefore, there are no restrictions on the ways that we can use or share your non-personal information.
You may be wondering, what exactly is personal information and how is it collected? Unlike, non-personal information, personal information can identify you personally. Personal information is data that identifies you as an individual, for example, your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number. We may collect personal information from you as you visit our website in a number of ways: • When you send us an application or even fill in a form • When you carry out a transaction with us, our affiliates, or others • We can collect information about you in support of a transaction, such as your credit card information • In some places on this web site you have the opportunity to willingly send us personal information about yourself, to elect to receive particular information about us, to purchase access to one of our products or services, or to partake in an activity on our website.
ARE COOKIES OR OTHER TECHNOLOGIES USED TO COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION?
A web beacon is a small graphic image that allows the party that set the web beacon to monitor and collect specific data about the viewer of the web page, web-based document or e-mail message. The data monitored is the type of browser requesting the web beacon or the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is delivered to, along with the time that the web beacon was viewed. Web beacons can be tiny or even invisible to the user, however, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or e-mail, including the HTML-based content, can act as a web beacon. We may use certain web beacons to count the number of visitors to the web pages on the website or to monitor how our users navigate and explore the website. We may even include web beacons in e-mail messages that we send to you in order to monitor how users interact with our emails for example we monitor the number of sent messages that were opened, read, acted on or forwarded.
