When you interact with us or use VP Services, Targeted Victory may collect information about you, including “personal information.” “Personal information” means information about you that specifically identifies you or, when combined with other information we have, can be used to identify you.
Automatically Generated Information
As you navigate through and interact with VP Services, we and our service providers may use automatic data collection technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information that is generated automatically while you using the VP Services, other websites, mobile websites and/or mobile applications or elsewhere on the Internet in order to provide content and advertisements about goods and services of interest to you across those various devices.
This non-personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, web pages visited before and after visiting the VP Services, date and time, logs, domain type, type of mobile device you use, your device’s unique ID links you click on, interactions with an advertisement delivered by us or a third-party advertising technology vendor and other communication data regarding the resources you access and use in connection with the VP Services. We may also collect your IP address, which is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet.
This information is generated by the following technologies:
Web Beacons: Our VP Services and our related e-mails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an e-mail and for other related Site statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain Site content and verifying system and server integrity).
Google Analytics: We use tools, including Google Analytics – a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) – to help analyze how users use the VP Services. This information is generated by cookies and transmitted to Google (including IP address). This information is then used to evaluate visitors’ use of the VP Services and to compile statistical reports on VP Services activity for us. Google Analytics collects information anonymously. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting your use of the VP Services.
