Personally Identifiable Information that alone or in combination with other information or in certain contexts can be used to identify, distinguish or trace You or Your Device is referred to in this document as
PII. PII, together with all other information about You and/or Your Device is referred to collectively as Your
II. The Types of Data Acquired About You
A. Personally Identifiable Information (PII). We acquire PII that may include, in certain contexts, Your name, postal address, zip code, email address, telephone number, IP address, User ID, Device ID, applicable organizational ID/tax ID (when provided by you and part of the process for Us to provide the Service).
B. Sensitive PII. In certain circumstances, as part of receiving the Service from Us, you may provide a credit or debit card number, which we recognize as more sensitive than other PII. We generally do not request on or through the Service other Data that is often considered
highly sensitive, such as other financial account information (e.g., credit report information, bank account numbers), personal health information, or certain government issued identification numbers (e.g., drivers' license number, or passport number), although we reserve the right to do so.
C. Anonymous Data. Some of the Data that We acquire cannot identify, distinguish or trace You or Your Device (e.g., video viewing habits) and some Data that could be considered PII in certain contexts is in fact not used in a way that identifies, distinguishes or traces You or Your Device, but instead may be used in an anonymous way - for example, aggregated with other anonymous Data about other users.
III. How We Acquire Your Data
A. Data You Provide. The Service generally receives PII because You provide it to Us. For instance, when You complete a survey, make a purchase or contribution, subscribe to Our newsletter updates or other publications, register for certain services, or register and/or set up an account/profile to access, visit and/or use certain portions of the Service, or the Service as a whole, You may be provided, or required to choose, a password and/or User ID, and You may provide a credit, debit, or charge card number, or other payment information, as well as Your name, telephone number(s), email and/or street address. Other Data such as Your age, gender, an avatar, and the number for Your Device may also be requested. In addition, You may be asked to send Us similar Data via messaging (e.g., email, SMS, MMS, or other technologies).
B. Data Automatically Collected. The servers that host the website(s) for the Service may also automatically collect Data about You, Your online behavior and Your Device. The Data collected may include, without limitation, the make, model, settings, specifications (e.g., CPU speed, connection speed, browser type, operating system, device identifier) and geographic location of You and/or Your Device, as well as date/time stamp, IP address, pages visited, time of visits, Content viewed, ads viewed, the site(s), application(s), destination(s), and/or service(s) You arrived from, and other clickstream data.
C. Information Acquired Elsewhere. We may also acquire PII or other information about You and Your Device offline or otherwise outside of the Service. For example, we may purchase or otherwise acquire such information from third party data suppliers. We reserve the right to merge or co-mingle this other information with Your PII and any other Data about You and/or Your Device collected on or through the Service.
E. Be Careful Publicly Posting PII. Please be aware that Content and PII that You disclose in publicly accessible portions of the Service may be available to other users, and may also be made available outside the Service via search results by third parties, so you should be mindful of all PII, especially sensitive Data, that You may wish to post.
