Device and Usage Information
When you visit the Website or use the Services, we may automatically receive and record information from your computer or mobile device. This information allows us to understand how people are navigating and using our Website and Services, and how we can improve your experience based on the information we collect. As described further below, we may collect and analyze information such as:
- IP addresses, location information, unique device identifiers, IMEI and TCP/IP address, and other information about your computer or device(s), browser types, browser language, operating system, mobile device carrier information, the state or country from which you accessed the Services; and
- information related to the ways in which you interact with the Services, such as: referring and exit web pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages and content viewed and the order of those pages, statistical information about the use of the Services, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the Services, the frequency of your use of the Services, error logs, and other similar information.
We may use third-party analytics providers and technologies, such as web server logs, cookies and tracking pixels, to help us collect the data described above. A web server log is a file where website activity is stored. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer when you visit a website that enables us to recognize your computer; store your preferences and settings; enhance your user experience by delivering content and advertisements specific to your inferred interests; perform searches and analytics; and assist with security administrative functions. Some cookies are placed in your browser cache while those associated with Flash technologies are stored with your Adobe Flash Player files. Tracking pixels (sometimes referred to as web beacons or clear GIFs) are tiny electronic tags with a unique identifier embedded in websites, online ads and/or email, and that are designed to provide usage information like ad impressions or clicks, measure popularity of the Services and associated advertising, and to access user cookies. We also may include Web beacons in email messages, newsletters and other electronic communications to determine whether the message has been opened and for other analytics, personalization and advertising. As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather additional information through other methods.
You can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information (e.g., Internet Explorer; Microsoft Edge; Google Chrome; Mozilla Firefox; or Apple Safari). You can also manage the use of Flash technologies, including cookies and local storage objects with the Flash management tools available at Adobe’s website. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies, you may not have access to certain features or offerings of the Services.
Information from Social Networking Sites and Other Third Parties
We may also collect information about you through third parties and other sources, such as from public records, marketers, researchers, analysts, social media services, and other organizations. We may combine information that we collect from you through the Services with information that we obtain from such third parties and information derived from any other products or services we provide. We use this information to supplement the information that we collect directly from you to derive your possible interests and to provide a more relevant experience for you and to improve the Website, analytics, and advertising. For example, we may obtain publicly available information on voting history and match that with what you have shared with us. This allows us to better tailor your experience in Supermajority.
Social networking sites, such as Facebook, have their own policies for handling your information. We have no control over how any third-party site uses or discloses the personal information it collects from you or about you, but you should consult the sites’ privacy policies to find a description of how these sites may use and disclose your information, including any information you make public.
