3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you use the Services, we may collect two types of information: Personal Information and Usage Data (collectively, “Information”).
- “Personal Information” means any information that identifies or could be used to identify an individual. For example, Personal Information generally includes contact data (name, address, phone number or email address), demographic data (gender, date of birth or zip/postal code) and, in some jurisdictions, certain Usage Data (as defined below). Personal Information is typically information that you voluntarily provide to us.
- “Usage Data” means information about an individual’s activity when he or she uses the Services. Usage Data may, for example, include browser and device information, aggregated information (statistics and impressions) and information gathered by cookies.
We may link some Usage Data together. If the linked information can be used to reasonably identify an individual, we will treat such linked information as Personal Information.
4. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE YOUR INFORMATION
We collect and use Information for all lawful purposes in the operation and conduct of our business, such as:
- When you interact with our Services: We collect the Personal Information that you voluntarily provide when you use the Services, such as when you register with one of our Services or participate in our contests or surveys. If you choose to provide us with Personal Information, we may use your Personal Information to enable your participation in our Services, send you promotions, advertising or information that we think may interest you should you consent to it, and notify you about important information regarding changes to our terms, conditions and policies. In addition, we may use Usage Data to provide the Services and help us better deliver and improve the Services, such as by diagnosing problems, delivering advertising, and conducting market research about the traffic and patterns of use of our Services.
- When you contact us: When you contact us, we may use the Personal Information you provide, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number and inquiry or opinion, to respond to your questions, resolve your problems, and help us improve our customer service.
- When you purchase products or enroll in a subscription service: Certain of our Services may offer e-commerce platforms where you can purchase products or subscription services. We may collect your Personal Information and maintain your order/purchase history to fulfill orders, ensure proper delivery, or provide other services related to your purchases. We use a third party payment processor to collect and process your credit card information. We do not collect, access, store or process any credit card information related to your online transactions.
- Through our Mobile Applications: In order to use our mobile applications (“Apps”), you may need to register and create an account with us. We may collect Information about your use of our Apps, including Information about the location of the device used to access the Services (“Location Data”). Location Data includes: (i) the location of the device derived from GPS or WiFi use; (ii) the IP address of the device or internet service used to access the Services, and (iii) other information made available by a user or others that indicates the current or prior location of the user. If you do not want us to collect Location Data from your device, please delete the App or disable the location setting on your device. Please note that disabling the location setting may affect certain features of the App.
- When you apply for employment: If you apply for employment, you will be navigated to a third party website to create a profile and complete your application. The Personal Information we collect through your employment application and profile is solely used to evaluate your application and consider you for current and future employment opportunities.
- From other sources: We may also receive Information about you through third parties with whom we contract, such as business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, and credit reference agencies.
5. COOKIES AND OTHER DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGY
Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer's hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and Internet activities. We use the following types of cookies on our Services:
- Session Cookies are used to operate our Services. Some cookies are essential for the operation of the Services. If a user chooses to disable cookies, certain content and features may not be available.
- Advertising Cookies are used to serve you with advertisements that we believe are relevant to you and your interests. These cookies also help us evaluate our marketing program performance and analytics.
- Security Cookies are used for general security purposes, such as user authentication and preventing fraudulent use or unauthorized access of data.
A web beacon (also called a pixel tag or clear GIF) is a piece of computer code that enables us to monitor user activity and website traffic. To learn more about cookies and web beacons, visit www.allaboutcookies.org. We refer to cookies, web beacons, and other similar technology as “Data Collection Technology.” Data Collection Technology enables us to remember your password for future log-ins, compile statistics about use of the Services, and detect and prevent fraud. Data Collection Technology also helps us and our ad management partners manage our online marketing program and deliver ads that are relevant or may be of interest to you.
If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or alert you when a cookie is dropped on your computer. Usually, these settings are available through the security features of your web browser, and you should be able to consult the Help feature available for your browser for further information. Please be aware that if you disable cookies, some features on the IDEAL websites may not be available, such as those features which require identification. If need be, IDEAL will reject any responsibility for the consequences associated with degraded operation of its Services resulting from rejection of deletion of cookies and IDEAL’s subsequent inability to register or consult the cookies necessary for operation.
Our policy on “Do Not Track” signals: California’s Online Privacy Protection Act requires website operators to disclose how they respond to web browser’s “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals. Some web browsers incorporate a DNT or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including IDEAL, do not respond to DNT signals.
Opting out of Interest-Based Advertising. Interest-based advertising is a way that helps companies provide you with more relevant advertising on the websites you visit of the applications you use. If you want to “opt out” of receiving online interest-based advertisements, please follow the instructions at www.aboutads.info/choices, or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. An “opt-out” cookie will be placed on your device indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertisements. Please note that when you “opt-out” of receiving interest-based advertisements, this does not mean you will no longer see advertisements from us or on the Services. It means that the online ads that you do see will not be based on your particular interests. If you delete cookies on your device, generally you will need to opt-out again. More information about online behavioral advertising can be found at www.aboutads.info.
6. HOW WE MAY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

- Service providers: Unless prohibited by applicable law, we may share Information with our third-party service providers that help us operate the Services, such as for website hosting, professional services, analytics, human resources management, customer service, e-mail delivery and auditing.
