Information We Collect by Automated Means
When you visit and interact with our websites and applications, we may collect “Other Information” that does not inherently reveal your specific identity, in order to learn how to best tailor our websites for our visitors. Examples of what Other Information we may collect and how we and third-party service providers may collect this information include:
Browser and Device Information
Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your devices, such as your computer type, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, Internet browser type and version, and the name and version of the online services (such as the apps) you are using. We use this information to ensure that the online services function properly.
Cookies are pieces of information stored directly on the computer or mobile device that you are using. Cookies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on the online services, pages visited, referring URL, and other aggregated website traffic data. We and our service providers use the information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, to display information more effectively, to collect statistical information, and to personalize your experience while online.
Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the online services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels, diagnosing server problems and administering our online services. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address to understand from what regions of the world our website visitors come.
Geolocation Based Services
We may collect geolocation data (i.e., the physical location of your device) if you have consented to us doing so, by, for example, using satellite, cell phone tower, Wi-Fi signals, or other technologies. We may use your device’s physical location to provide you with location-based services and content.
For example, some of our apps allow you to enroll to receive location-based offers by agreeing to the use of technologies that enable us to collect information about your location through your mobile device. We will collect this information if you opt-in through the app (either during your initial login or later) to receive the offers and by enabling these capabilities on your mobile device. In addition, if you download one of our business apps for use in performing activities in your occupation, we may collect the geolocation of your mobile device (if you consent to the collection of this data) to provide information for the benefit of you and other users. For example, if you are a driver for a motor carrier, and download one of our business apps designed for motor carrier logistics, we may collect the geolocation of your mobile device (if you consent) to track the status of a shipment and provide other logistics services for customers, shippers or carriers.
