When submitting your personal information through our Websitethe Service for a current position with us, the information will be used only in connection with consideration to your application. We may keep your resume and application on file for current and/or future available positions or as required by law.

You may choose to voluntarily submit other information to us through the Service that we do not request, and, in such instances, you are solely responsible for such information.

B. Information Collected Automatically.

In addition, we automatically collect information when you use the Service. Some examples of information we automatically collect include the following:

• Service Use Data, including data about the features you use, the pages you visit, the emails and advertisements you view, the time of day you browse, and your referring and exiting pages.

• Device Connectivity and Configuration Data, including data about the type of device or browser you use, your device’s operating software, your internet service provider, your device’s regional and language settings, and device identifiers such as IP address, and Ad Id (e.g., IDFA or AAID).

• Location Data, including imprecise location data (such as location derived from an IP address or data that indicates a city or postal code level) and, with your consent, precise location data (such as latitude/longitude data).

We use various current – and later – developed technologies to automatically collect information (“Tracking Technologies”), including the following:

• Log Files, which are files that record events that occur in connection with your use of the Service.

• Cookies, We may also collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of a “cookie” as a means of easier communication with you to our Website. which are small lines of text that are stored with your web browser to collect information and for record keeping that act as a unique tag to identify your browser. We use two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate our website and expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies help with personalizing your experience, remembering your preferences, and supporting security features. Additionally, persistent cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the Service. Persistent cookies may remain on your device for extended periods of time, and generally may be controlled through your browser settings.

• Pixels (also known as web beacons), which is code embedded in a website, video, email, or advertisement that sends information about your use to a server. There are various types of pixels, including image pixels (which are small graphic images) and JavaScript pixels (which contains JavaScript code). When you access a website, video, email, or advertisement that contains a pixel, the pixel may permit us or a third party to drop or read cookies on your browser. Pixels are used in combination with cookies to track activity by a particular browser on a particular device. We may incorporate pixels from third parties that allow us track conversions, bring you advertising both on and off the Service, and provide you with additional functionality, such as the ability to connect our Service with your social media account.

• Device Fingerprinting, which is the process of analyzing and combining sets of information elements from your device’s browser, such as JavaScript objects and installed fonts, in order to create a “fingerprint” of your device and uniquely identify your browser and device.

• Location-Identifying Technologies, which are technologies used to collect your location. Location data may be used for purposes such as verifying your device’s location and delivering or restricting relevant content and advertising based on that location.

Some information about your use of the Service and certain Third Party Services (defined below) may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services and used by us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Service and certain Third Party Services.
