To control which servers collect information, we may place tags (web beacons) on our pages. We also may send software instructions to your device that collect details of your interactions with our website, such as the kind of general information listed above.

Who May Have Access To Your Information

Service Providers

We use a number of outside service providers, such as cloud storage providers who store the information we collect, software developers we hire to debug or improve our program, providers who support certain features of our services that allow us to communicate with you (such as automated SMS text message providers, e-mail service providers, and live chat providers) and payment or credit card processors. These outside service providers may have limited access to your personal information to the extent necessary to provide their services. All of these service providers may only use or disclose your personal information to provide services to us or comply with legal requirements.

Researchers / Data Analysts

We may also share personal information for research, academic studies, data analysis, and reports. Information for these purposes is always aggregated and not personally identifiable. That means none of the information is linked to you or any other particular person. For example, the data we share may be used to say how many users (not the names of) live in New York. We may also share with others how many people (not who) visited our site.
