What personal data we collect and why we collect it

 

Information We Collect

 

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so, for example to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to improve our Services.

 

We collect this information from three sources: whenever you provide us with information, automatically through the operation of our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s review the information we collect.

 

Information that you provides

 

It is probably not a surprise that we collect the information you provide directly to us. Here are some examples:

 

  • Basic account  information : We ask you for basic information to set up your account if you want to do so to leave a comment on our website or buy from our online store. For example, we require people who sign up for an account to provide an email address and password, along with a username or name, and that’s it. You can provide us with more information, such as your address and other information that you want to share, but we do not need it to create an account.
  • Public Profile Information:  If you have an account with us, we collect the information you provide for your public profile. For example, if you have an account, your username is part of that public profile, along with any other information that you enter in your public profile, such as a photo or an «About Me» description. Your public profile information is just that, public, so keep that in mind when deciding what information you’d like to include.
  • Payment and Contact Information:  If you purchase something from us, we will collect information to process those payments and communicate with you, and provide additional payment and personal information, such as your name, credit card information, and contact information. We also keep a record of the purchases you have made.
  • Content Information: You  can provide us with information about yourself in draft and published content (a blog post or comment that includes biographical information about you or whatever media or file you upload).

 

Information We Collect Automatically

 

We also collect certain information automatically:

 

  • Log information:  Like most online service providers, we collect information that is commonly made available by web browsers, mobile devices, and servers, including browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, date and time of access, operating system and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Services, for example when you browse our website, make a comment, or make a purchase.
  • Usage Information: We  collect information about your use of our Services. For example, we collect information about the actions that administrators and users perform on a site that uses the services of WordPress.com or Jetpack; in other words, who did what and when (for example, [WordPress.com username] deleted «[post title]» at [time / date]).  The WooCommerce usage tracker It also tracks information such as the website administrator’s email address, WooCommerce settings, and PHP settings, along with information about your online store, such as the total number of orders and customers. This information is used to, for example, provide you with our Services, obtain information about how people use our Services so that we can improve our Services, and understand and make predictions about user retention.
  • Location information: We  can determine the approximate location of your device from its IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services from certain geographic regions. We may also collect your precise location information through our mobile applications (such as when you post a photo with location information) if you allow us to do so through the permissions of your mobile device operating system.
  • Stored information:  we can access the information stored on your mobile device through our mobile applications. We access this stored information through the permissions of your device’s operating system. For example, if you give us permission to access photos on your mobile device’s camera roll, our Services may access photos stored on your device when you upload a truly amazing sunrise photograph to your website.
  • Information from Cookies and Other Technologies:  A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Pixel tags (also called web beacons) are small blocks of code that are placed on websites and emails. This website uses cookies and other technologies such as pixel tags to help us identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences for our Services, as well as track and understand the effectiveness of email campaigns and deliver targeted advertisements.
