We use this information to improve our website and provide you with a better user experience.
We may also collect personal information from you when you provide it to us voluntarily, such as when you fill out a form or sign up for an account. This personal information may include your name, email address, and any other information you choose to provide. We use this personal information to provide you with the products or services you have requested and to communicate with you about your account or our services.
Log data and Cookies
Like many operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Platform, further referred to as “Log data”. This Log data may include, among others, information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol ‘’IP’’ address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Platform that you visit, the time and date that you visit, the time spent on those pages and information you search for. We connect personal information to information gathered in our log files as necessary to improve our Platform.
Our Platform also collects data from cookies stored on your device (including cookie IDs and settings) and the data obtained this way may differentiate depending whether you are logged in to your account. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are commonly used across the internet in order to make websites work, improve their personalisation, or to provide information to the owners of the site about how it is working. A cookie often contains a unique identifier, which can be used to recognise your computer when it returns to a website that it has visited before.
Pixels work with cookies to help us understand how you use our website and to improve our advertising, similar to cookies. Pixels are different from cookies because they do not stay on your computer, they are temporary while you browse our Site and are ‘removed’ when you close our Site.
Cookies are commonly classified into ‘first party’ and ‘third party’ cookies, and this changes whether we or one of our partners serves you the cookie. First party cookies are served by us and are more likely used to ensure performance of our Site, while third party cookies are hosted by one of our partners and more likely used for analytics and measurement of marketing performance.
Cookies may also have different lifetimes – this means that they stay on your computer for a defined period before being automatically removed. Another common cookie type is a ‘session cookie’, these cookies are automatically removed when you close your browser.
Who we share your data with
We may share your information with third parties in limited circumstances, such as when we have your consent, when we need to comply with the law, or when we need to protect the rights, property, or safety of our company, our users, or the public.
How we protect your data
We take steps to protect your information and keep it secure. However, no website or internet transmission is completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
