4. Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying
Datafied collects both Non-Personally-Identifying and Personally-Identifying Information
from users. “Non–Personally–Identifying Information” is information that, without
the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific
person or entity. “Personally–Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information
such as a name or e-mail address that, without more, can be directly associated
with a specific person or entity.
A. Gathering Non-Personally-Identifying Information
(i) Web Browsers
Like most website operators, Datafied gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying
Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make
available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address,
operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views
right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website.
(ii) Web Cookies
A “Web Cookie” is a string of information that a website stores on a user’s computer,
and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a
query to the site. Datafied uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit
during each Website session, both to help Datafied improve users’ experiences and
to help Datafied understand how the Website is being used.
WEBSITE USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD
SET THEIR BROWSERS TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, WITH THE
UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT
THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. WEBSITE USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY
FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
(iii) Web Beacons
A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page that is usually invisible
to the user and allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular
web page. Datafied may use Web Beacons on the Website to count users who have visited
particular pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to
access users’ Personally-Identifying Information; they are a technique Datafied
may use to compile aggregated statistics about Website usage. Web Beacons collect
only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a
page view, and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides.
You may not decline Web Beacons, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining
all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is
tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. Third
parties are not permitted to use Web Beacons on the Website.
