When you use the Site or communicate with us about the Site, we or our service providers may collect information that could reasonably be used to contact you or to identify you personally, referred to as Personal Information (also Personally Identifiable Information or PII in the U.S. and Personal Data in the European Union) such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number or mailing address. We may also collect Personal Information submitted to us in connection with job applications through the Site or through contests, interactive features, information you post to the site, or messages you submit to us.
Information Collected Automatically
Usage Information. Whenever you visit or interact with the Site, the community, as well as any third-party advertisers and/or service providers, may use a variety of technologies (“Tracking Technologies”) that automatically or passively collect information about how the Site is accessed and used (“Usage Information”). Usage Information may include, in part, browser type and version, screen size, operating system, the page served, the time, the preceding page views, domains, and aggregated data related to your use of the Website. This provides us with information about the use of the Site, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. This information helps us keep our website fresh and interesting to our visitors and tailor content to visitors’ interests.
Device Identifiers. The community may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier, including (on mobile devices) Google’s Ad ID and the Apple ID for Advertising, or IDFA (“Device Identifier”) for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (c “Device”) you use to access the Site. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device so that when you access any web site, including ours, the site can identify your Device by its Device Identifier. It does not directly identify you, but may identify you when combined with other information. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Site, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track users’ web page movements, help identify, and gather broad demographic or firmographic information for aggregate use.
Cookies; Pixel Tags. The Tracking Technologies used on the Site to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, may include but are not limited to: cookies (data files placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Site), mobile analytics software (on our mobile site) and pixel tags (transparent graphic image, sometimes called a web beacon or tracking beacon, placed on a web page or in an email, which indicates that a page or email has been viewed). We, or our vendors, may place cookies or similar files on your Device for many purposes, including to facilitate site navigation and to personalize your experience while visiting our Site (such as allowing us to select which content, is most likely to appeal to you, based on your interests, preferences, general geographic location, or demographic or firmographic information). A pixel tag may tell your browser to get content from another server.
Data from Mobile Devices. Some data collection and tracking cannot be controlled through your browser. In order to turn off tracking on mobile devices using mobile ad IDs, you must go to the “settings” for the devices, and turn off tracking for analytics and/or advertising.

We may link them probabalistically, by making certain observations and assumptions, or by recognizing patterns of use, or we may link them deterministically when we have actual information that you are using both devices, for example, if you email us from both devices. We use this device linkage information to improve your experience on our Site, and to better serve you. We do not use it for IBA, but if you would like to opt out of having your information on different devices used for IBA, you can opt out from each device you would like to remove at http://optout.aboutads.info/choices.
