1. What information does the Site collect?
There are several types of information gathered when using a website, including information that the user voluntarily provides and information that is collected through automatic data collection technology (collectively referred to herein as “User Data”), which may include Personal Information.
“Personal Information” is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked with you or your household. For example, it could include your name, social security number, email address, records of products purchased, internet browsing history, geolocation data, and inferences from other personal information that could create a profile about your preferences and characteristics, that is not publicly available from federal, state, or local government records.
1.1 Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us, which may include, but is not limited to the following:
- Personal Information, including the following categories of information:
- full name
