As used in this policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or touching information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within the republic of Italy or internationally.
Information Collection and Use
3CMH collects information in order to provide and improve its Services, features and content, to administer Users’ membership and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site. Personal information can be also used in order to better understand how Services are used.
Personally Identifiable Information.
- In the course of using the Services, 3CMH asks the User to provide certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify the User and administer his/her account (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, name, phone number, email address and home and business postal addresses. We use Personal Information mainly to provide the Services.
- 3CMH also collects other information provided as part of the use of the Services, including via registration, administration and personalization of profile webpage (e.g., zip code, gender, age and individual preferences) (“Non-Identifying Information”). Some Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining zip code with street address) in a way that enables the User to be identified. But the same information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, User’s viewing preferences). 3CMH may combine Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Viblix Users to to provide Users with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Services and to analyze and understand how Services are used.
- 3CMH may also use Personal Information to contact Users with Viblix newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to the User. If the User decides at any time no longer to receive such communications, can send an email to email@example.com.
Surveys and Promotions. Occasionally, 3CMH may provide Users with the opportunity to participate in surveys or contests (any of these a “Promotion”) through our Services. If the User participates in a Promotion, 3CMH will request certain Personal Information from him/her, in order to administer the User’s participation in the Promotion. Participation in a Promotion is completely voluntary and the User therefore is able can decide whether or not to disclose this information.
Log Data. When a User use the Services, whether as a Viblix Member or a non-registered user just browsing, 3CMH’s servers automatically record information that his/her browser sends whenever he/she visits a website or uses a mobile app on a mobile device. (“Log Data”). This log data may include information such as User’s computer IP address, browser type or the domain from which he/she is visiting or information from the mobile device like screen resolution, device model, carrier and operating system version. 3CMH uses this information to monitor and analyze the use of the Services and for the Site’s technical administration. 3CMH does not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though it may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
Do Not Track. At the moment, there is no formal standard for “do not track” signals and responses. As a result, 3CMH does not assign any meaning to potential “do not track” signals. 3CMH may receive personally identifiable information about User’s activity on third party websites in certain circumstances, e.g., if the User connects his/her Viblix account to a social networking service (as below described). Moreover, other parties may collect personally identifiable information about User’s online activities and across third party websites or services when the User uses the Viblix website or service.
Like many websites, 3CMH uses “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file transferred to User’s computer for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on User’s computer, while session cookies are deleted as soon as the web browser closes.
3CMH may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (individually or collectively “Pixel Tags”) in connection with its Services to collect usage, demographic and geographical location data. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel that is ordinarily not visible to users and may be associated with cookies on a user’s hard drive.
