1. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
We collect data to provide the products and services you request, ease your navigation on the Site, communicate with you, and improve your experience using the Site. Some of this information is provided by you directly to us, such as when you purchase our products or services. Some of the information is collected through your interactions with the Site. For example, we use tracking technologies such as cookies and action tags (discussed below in Section 1.2), and other usage data such as error reports. Some of the information is collected from your use of, and interactions with, us and others on social media, including LinkedIn®, Twitter®, Facebook®, YouTube®, and Instagram® (collectively “Social Media”).
The data we collect depends on the products, services, and features of the Site that you use, and includes the following:
1.1 Personal Information.
Information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household is “Personal Information.” As further described below, this may include: (i) personal identifiers such as your name, address, driver’s license, or financial and payment information; (ii) commercial information, such as records of products or services purchased; (iii) browsing or search history and other internet activity; (iv) geolocation data; (v) video or audio content and other sensory data; (vi) professional or employment-related information; and (vii) profile and preference information. Personal Information does not include publicly available information from government records, or de-identified or aggregated consumer information. Please note that certain types of information may have additional protections under other laws, such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA) and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994.
1.2 Automatically Collected Usage and Device Information.
Similar to other websites, we use tracking technologies (such as cookies) to automatically collect certain technical information from your web browser, or device you use when you visit our Site. This data may include your IP address, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of your visits. Our collection of this information allows us to improve your user experience in various ways, including to personalize our display of the Site, to provide better technical support to you, and to track usage of the Site.
Please note: If you restrict, disable, or block any or all cookies from your web browser or device, the Site may not operate properly and you may not have access to certain services or parts of the Site. For more information regarding your online tracking choices, please refer to Section 7. We will not be liable for any interruption in, or inability to use, the Site or our services or degraded functioning thereof, when caused by your settings or choices regarding cookies.
B. Pixels and Similar Technologies.
We may use pixels (also known as web beacons or web bugs) to automatically record certain information about how you engage with us or otherwise interact with the Site, to help deliver cookies on our Site, or to count users who have visited the Site. We may also include pixels in our promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether you open or act on them. Pixels are tiny graphics (about the size of a period at the end of a sentence) with unique identifiers used to track certain online actions, movements, and related information of Site users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixels are invisible and embedded on web pages or in HTML-based emails. The data we receive through pixels allows us to promote the Site effectively to various populations of users and to optimize external advertisements about the Site that appear on third-party websites.
1.3 Tax Exemption, Licenses, and Regulatory Information.
In order to process certain purchases of our products or services in compliance with federal, state, or local law, we may request information related to your tax exemption status, eligibility to purchase a particular product or service, and any other information required by law to process or determine your eligibility for your purchase or request.
1.4 Information from Other Sources.
We may obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from business partners, contractors, suppliers, and other third parties and add it to your account information or other information we have collected. We, and the third parties we engage, may combine information we collect from you over time with information obtained from other sources. This helps us improve the information’s overall accuracy and completeness and also helps us better tailor our interactions with you.
1.5 Location Information.
We collect precise geolocation data from you or your device, as well as your address information (e.g., billing address), when you set up an account or order our products or services. We also collect and use information about your general location (e.g., the state where your business operates) and can infer your approximate location based on your IP address in order to track our general Site usage or to tailor any pertinent aspects of your user experience to the region where you are located.

7. ONLINE TRACKING CHOICES.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features and services of the Site may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. Similarly, if you choose to delete session objects from our Site, you may not be able to access and use all or part of the Site or benefit from some or all of the information or features and services offered.
Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have the user’s online activity and behavior 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 from that browser. Not all browsers offer a DNT option, and DNT signals are not uniform. For this reason, many websites, including the Site, do not respond to DNT signals.
8. SAFETY AND INFORMATION SECURITY MEASURES.
We use certain physical, administrative, and technical safeguards designed to preserve the security of your Personal Information that we maintain in connection with your use of the Site. For example, we encrypt data with secure sockets layer (SSL) or similar technologies when we transmit your data. This, however, does not guarantee that your Personal Information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by any breach of our physical, administrative, or technical safeguards. If any of your Personal Information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and will notify you when required by applicable laws and regulations.
We or our third party hosting providers store Personal Information in operating environments that are safeguarded against public or unauthorized access and protected from internal access with physical and technical security measures. While these measures are helpful to safeguard your Personal Information after we receive it, no transmission of data over the internet is 100% secure.
