Cookies are small text files that websites and other online services use to store information about users on the users’ own computers. For example, cookies can be used to store your sign-in credentials so that you do not have to enter them each time you return to a website. Cookies also may be used to store a unique identification number tied to your computer so that a website can recognize you as the same user across different visits to the website.
Web beacons communicate information from your Internet browser to a web server and can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, and can allow a web server to read certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Web beacon, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Web beacon was viewed.
We, along with third-party partners, also use other kinds of local storage, such as Local Shared Objects (also referred to as “Flash cookies”) and HTML5 local storage, in connection with the Services. These technologies are similar to the cookies in that they are stored on your computer and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences, but are stored in different parts of your computer from ordinary browser cookies.
Information from commercially available sources: We may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, we may collect information about you from third parties, including but not limited to survey providers, mailing list providers, and commercial and publicly available sources.
