Other Information We May Collect
“Other Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual, such as:
Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies
Demographic information and Other Information provided by you
How We May Collect Other Information
We and our third-party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:
Through your browser: Most Internet browsers transmit certain information to websites that you visit, such as your computer’s type (Windows or Macintosh) and its Media Access Control (MAC) address and screen resolution, and the type and version of your computer’s Operating System and browser. We use this information to ensure that the Sites functions properly.
Using applications: We may use applications, including mobile applications or widgets, to collect information from you.
Using pixel tags and other similar technologies: Pixel tags (also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) may be used in connection with some Sites pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track the actions of Sites users and email recipients, measure the success of marketing campaigns and compile statistics about Sites usage and response rates.
IP Address: 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 is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user visits the Sites, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating Sites usage levels, helping diagnose server problems and administering the Sites.
From you: We collect information when voluntarily provided by you, such as your company, title, interests and preferred means of communication. Unless combined with Personal Information, such information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Sites.
By aggregating information: Aggregated Personal Information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Sites. For example, we may aggregate Personal Information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code.
How We May Use and Disclose Other Information
Please note that we may use and disclose Other Information for any purpose, except where we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law. In those situations, we may use and disclose Other Information for the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information, as well as for the uses listed in the “How We May Collect Other Information” section above.
In some instances, we may combine Other Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your company and title). If we combine any Other Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information as long as it is so combined.
The views and opinions expressed on this website and in other content shared by B Local Florida are solely those of the original authors and other contributors. These views and opinions do not necessarily represent those of B Lab or any Certified B Corporations.
We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information under our control. Unfortunately, no data storage system or method of data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please do not send sensitive or confidential information to us by email or by any other means in connection with the Sites. If you have reason to believe that your communications with us have been compromised in any way, please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us as provided in the “CONTACTING US” section below.
