How We Collect Information
Data Interconnect may collect both Personal Information and Other Information from a variety of sources that generally fall into three categories:
- Direct Interactions: From your use of and interaction with us through the Channels and other activities such as account creation, submission of registrations and forms, or sales inquiries and transactions.
- Publicly Available Data / Data from Third Parties: Data from Automated Interactions on non-Data Interconnect websites, or other data you may have made publicly available, such as social media posts, or data provided by third party sources, such as marketing opt-in lists, or data aggregators.
- Automated Interactions: From the use of technologies such as electronic communication protocols, cookies, embedded URLs or pixels, or widgets, buttons and tools.
Although Data Interconnects use of Automated Interactions may change over time as technology evolves, the following descriptions are designed to provide you with additional detail about Data Interconnects current approach to information collected from Automated Interactions.
Electronic Communications Protocols: As is true when you visit most websites and apps, Data Interconnect may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type or device type), your IP address (which may identify your general geographic location or company), and date and time.
Data Interconnect may also automatically receive and record information about your interaction with the Channels, such as click stream information (when each Data Interconnect webpage was visited and how much time was spent on the page), how often you access the Channel, performance data, aggregate usage, or general geo-location data.
