The Information We Collect
We collect information from you when you sign up to use the Sumpto Service through our Website, and when you use the Sumpto Service. This information includes personal information about you, such as your name, age and e-mail address (“Personal Information”). We do not collect any Personal Information from you unless you voluntarily provide the Personal Information to us, such as when you use the Sumpto Service.
In addition to the Personal Information noted above that you voluntarily provide, we may collect additional information (collectively, the “Other Information”). Such Other Information may include:
a. Activity. If you use the internet, most websites collect certain basic information about you and your surfing habits. We collect this information as well. This information includes information about your operating system, your IP addresses, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, keywords, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of a website you visit, and similar information concerning your use of the Sumpto Service (the “Usage Information”). We collect this information by using cookies and pixel tags, web server logs, and by passing data through our API. A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer and stored on your hard drive when you visit a website. We also use pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs) that allow us to collect information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the pixel tag appears, the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears, the time (and length of time) the page containing the tag is viewed, and the identification number of any cookie previously placed by that server on your computer. This enables us to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits the site on which the pixel tag is located in order to learn which advertisement brings a user to a given site.
b. Information from Social Network Platforms and Third Party Sites. We may collect other information from third-party social network platforms on which you have used the Sumpto Service. We may also collect information from third-party websites that those websites have made publicly available.
