Types of Information Collected
In general, we collect information in three ways: (1) passively through technology such as “cookies”, (2) when you provide it directly such as by filling in information in forms available on the Site, and (3) when we obtain verification information about you through trusted third parties (e.g. banks). The types of information that we collect and use will depend on whether you are a Visitor or User.
- Traffic Data Collected. We may track and collect the following information when you visit our Site, including your: (i) IP address; (ii) domain server; (iii) type of computer; and (iv) type of web browser (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for improving your experience on the Site. We may use “cookies,” which are small data files that may be stored on your computer by the Site, to improve your experience on the Site. We may also use web beacons (clear GIFs) to track online usage of the Site, which information is anonymous and does not contain any personal identification information.
- Personal Information Collected. We may collect your email address via cookies and pixels on the Site through the use of trusted third party partners. These partners may combine your email information with other information they have access to such as mailing address so that we may serve relevant marketing offers to you via direct mail. If you do not want us to collect information about you, please contact FilterEasy to opt out. In order for you to access certain services that we offer via the Site or when placing orders or dealing with us through telephone or other communication methods, we require you to provide us with information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may include: (i) contact data (such as your name, mailing and e-mail addresses) (“Contact Data”); and (ii) payment information (such as your credit card or debit card number). If you communicate with us by e-mail, complete online registration forms, surveys or other forms, or post to comment sections or forums, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.
- Demographic Data. Personal Information you provide may be aggregated with that of other Site users to provide non-personally identifiable data on the demographic characteristics of Site users (“Demographic Data”).
