- Information We Collect and Retain
Sholove gathers two basic types of information through the Site: personal information and demographic information. Personal information is information that identifies you as an individual. We do not collect personal information unless you choose to provide it to us. Demographic information is information that is not unique to you, but refers to selected aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity.
- You may browse the Site without revealing personally identifiable information about yourself. When you register for an account or purchase items, we require you to provide personal information, which you consent to the transfer and storage of your account information. Some examples of personal information we may collect from you through the Site, depending on your use and local law, are:
- Your name
- Email Address
- Postal address
- Telephone number
- Contact information
- Billing information (such as credit card or other payment method)
- Shipping address
- Transactional information based upon your activities on the Site
- Correspondence through our Site or correspondence sent to us
- Supplemental information from third parties
- Demographic Information
When you visit and interact with the Site, Sholove and third parties with whom Sholove has contracted to provide services to Sholove may collect demographic information (for example, a catalog of the Site pages you visited). Examples of demographic information we collect are: age, zip code, preferences, gender, race or ethnicity, interests and favorites.
We also may collect behavioral information regarding how you use our Site and Services (defined below), the areas of our Site that you visit, what Services you access, and informationa about your computer hardware and software including your IP address, geolocation, browser and operating system type, domain names, access times and referriing web site addresses. This infomation is necessary for analyzing the use of resources, troubleshooting problems, preventing fraud, and improving our Services (the "Services") (as defined in our Terms of Service Agreement www.sholove.org here to specific Services definition).
In addition, Sholove may collect indirect information about you when you use certain third party services on our web site. For example if you provide a title of 'Mr.' we will assume you are male.
We may personalize the advertising that you are shown on our Site or other sites with which we have a business relationship. In order to provide this personalization, in addition to information we collect about you on our Site, we acquire information (including personal, demographic, behavioral and indirect information) about you from third parties who provide it to us.
Demographic information is generally collected through the Site from five different sources: server log files, cookies, pixel tags and environmental variables.
- Server Log Files
Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. We use your IP address, and the IP addresses of all users, for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Site's servers, and administering the Site. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many web sites.
- Pixel Tags
We and our service providers may also use so-called "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "Pixel Tags") in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1x1), that is ordinarily not visible to Site visitors and may be associated with Cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened.
- Environmental Variables
We and our service providers may also collect certain environmental variables, such as your MAC address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, OS version, Internet browser, and Internet browser version. These environmental variables are collected by most browsers and can be used to optimize your experience on the Site.
We also may collect behavioral information regarding how you use our Site and Services (defined below), the areas of our Site that you visit, what Services you access, and information about your computer hardware and software including your IP address, geo-location, browser and operating system type, domain names, access times and referring web site addresses. This information is necessary for analyzing the use of resources, troubleshooting problems, preventing fraud, and improving our Services (the “Services”) (as defined in our Terms of Service Agreement www.sholove.org here to specific Services definition].
In addition, Sholove may collect indirect information about you when you use certain third party services on our web site. For example if you provide a title of ‘Mr.’ we will assume you are male.
