Information You Provide to Us
Information Collected Automatically
We may automatically collect additional information about your visit to our online platforms, including pages you visit, your geographic location based solely on your Internet Protocol (IP) address, promotions with which you interacted, and other behaviors. This information is collected to improve your overall visit to our online platforms by providing interest-based content. For example, we may collect information about your geographic location and a specific interest, based on topics you have browsed on our online platforms, so that we can highlight a program or resource close to your location. The data may also be used to provide interest-based content for communications for which you have opted in. We may also gather certain information automatically, including but not limited to, IP addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), operating system, date/time stamp, mobile location and device type, and/or clickstream data. This information may be collected via cookies, web beacons, and/or similar technologies that help us serve you better, for example, by making your interactions with our online platforms faster or more personalized. The information we collect automatically through these technologies may be linked to other information we collect about you. When interacting with our services within social media, we may obtain information stored within social media or authorized by you to be collected by us within such social media. This information may include your contact information, email address, friend information, friends and pages with whom you have an association, and other information stored within social media.
Information Collected by Third-Party Tools
