Effective November 6, 2019
Your IP Address
Like most e-commerce websites, each time You visit Our Site, We automatically collect Your IP address and the web page from which You came. We use Your IP address to administer and optimize Our Site for You and to diagnose problems with Our Site.
Other Information We Collect
When browsing Our Site, You are not required to provide any personal information unless and until You choose to sign up for one of Our e-mail newsletters or other services as described below. We do not knowingly permit Our Site to be used by any person under the age of eighteen and We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children (meaning those younger than eighteen years of age). We collect personal information from servers owned by others, i.e., Facebook and MySpace. We may, from time to time, store the data We collect on Our servers and on servers owned by others. We undertake ongoing efforts to assure the integrity and security of the data on Our servers, but cannot guarantee that the security measures We employ will always be completely effective. We also cannot guarantee the absolute security of data We store on servers owned by others. We will provide notice on Our Site if We have reason to believe the integrity of Our stored data has been breached or compromised, potentially permitting unauthorized third-parties to access the stored data.
Registered User Information
If You choose to become a Registered User of Control.My.ID, You must sign in through another service (“OAuth”) or provide a valid e-mail address, phone number, a unique login name, password, and password validation, and/or a password hint to help You remember Your password. This information is collected on the registration form for several reasons including: (1) personal identification & login; (2) to allow Us to contact You for customer service purposes, if necessary; (3) to customize the Content of Our Site to meet Your specific needs; and (4) to make product improvements to Our Site. Some services require authentication through third parties to ensure you have access to take the required action. We will use information passed to us through third parties to validate your action before these tools are used.
Automatic Logging of Session Data
We automatically log generic information about Your computer’s connection to the Internet, which We call “session data”, that is anonymous and not linked to any personal information. Session data consists of things such as IP address, operating system and type of browser software being used and the activities conducted by the user while on Our Site. An IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet, such as our web servers, know where to send data back to the user, such as the pages of the website the user wishes to view. We collect session data because it helps Us analyze such things as what items visitors are likely to click on most, the way visitors are clicking through the website, how many visitors are surfing to various pages on the website, how long visitors to the website are staying and how often they are visiting. We also record the URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) of the websites You have visited prior to arriving at Our Website(s) and the URLs of the destinations You visit after you leave our Website(s). Collecting this information also helps us diagnose problems with Our servers and lets Us better administer Our systems. You should know it is possible to determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the approximate geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
From time to time We may add or enhance services available on Our Site. To the extent these services are provided and used by You, We will use the information You provide to facilitate the service requested. For example, if You e-mail us with a question, We will use Your e-mail address, name, nature of the question, etc. to respond to Your question. We may also store such information to assist Us in making Our Site better and easier to use.
Information Other Websites Collect From You
Sharing Your Information
When You use Our Site or provide Us with information, We may share Your personal information among Our corporate affiliates at Control.My.ID. For example, if You decide to update or change data you would like to share with affiliates, We may share Your data with Our affiliated websites, as well as unaffiliated users of such data including suppliers, affiliates, other current and potential business partners and other third parties. We may also use and share such aggregate statistical information and data to inform these third parties as to the number of people who have seen and clicked on links to their web sites. Occasionally, We may hire a third party to act on Our behalf for projects such as market-research surveys and will provide information to these third parties specifically for use in connection with these projects.
We may contact You regarding commercial services and/or products. In addition to the circumstances described above, We may disclose Your information as part of a validation process in the interest of preventing fraud and to validate Our business metrics including number of clicks, referrer logs and other tracking information. We may also disclose Your information if required to do so by law or a valid court order. We may also disclose Your information pursuant to the request of any government or law enforcement authority or in our sole discretion if We believe that disclosure is necessary or advisable to, among other things, protect Our rights, or protect the rights of others. We specifically reserve the right to disclose identifying information about Registered Users and visitors who simply browse Our Site if We determine in our sole discretion that the disclosure of such information is necessary for a third party to identify, contact or bring legal action against a Registered User or visitor to Our Site who may be interfering with or violating the rights of a third party, intentionally or otherwise. In addition, if Control.My.ID or substantially all of its assets are acquired, Our user, Registered User and customer information will most likely also be transferred in connection with such acquisition. We may sell your information but only if you are opted in to do so. If you are opted in to do so, we may share revenue with you from the sale of that data (“Data Dividends”).
We may use demographic and listing information to customize Our Site and communications to the interests of Our users. We may share demographic information and Saved Listings with advertisers and other third parties so that they can target their advertisements and communications to the appropriate audience if you have opted in. Demographic and listing data We provide to advertisers and other third parties may be linked to information You have provided as a Registered User so that advertisers and third parties can target the offerings presented to You. We may capture, correct, enhance, extrapolate and store additional information and data based on information You supply, including without limitation data relating to Your geographic location, IP address and provider, email and other demographic information. We may also enhance the information We collect from You with additional information collected by third parties to correct, match, enhance or complete the data You have provided. We may store and share this enhanced information on an individual or aggregated basis.
If you have opted in to do so, we may disclose personal information we’ve collected with unaffiliated third parties for any legally permissible purpose including, but not limited to, the delivery of targeted offers and advertisements. If you have opted in to do so, we may also disclose personal information to unaffiliated third parties, including advertisers, advertising networks, advertising servers, and analytics companies for any legally permissible purpose including, but not limited to, the delivery of targeted advertising.
While we don’t sell your information without your consent, We provide consumers with the opportunity to opt-out of their personal information being shared with third-parties. If you would like to do so, please unsubscribe here, or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any additional questions or would like further information on this topic, please e-mail us at email@example.com.
