Active8 and any company that is directly or indirectly controlled by, or under common control with it (collectively, “Active8”), respects your right to privacy; and we want you to be aware of how we collect and handle information on each website and mobile application covered by this policy.
Active8 collects and may store and share personally identifiable information that you knowingly provide to us. For example, Active8 may ask you to provide personally identifiable contact information (such as name, address, e-mail address and telephone number). Active8 will not share credit card information or social security numbers. If you purchase a product or service, Active8 may ask you to provide additional information such as your credit card information. Active8 may also ask you to provide other information such as a personal ID, password, security question and answer, as well as birthdate.
If you choose to use an available referral service on This Website, we will ask for certain personal information from the recipient (e.g., the recipient’s name, e-mail address, mobile telephone number) and your name and e-mail address. Active8 uses the personally identifiable referral information you provide to facilitate this communication on a one-time basis and may also store and use such personally identifiable information for analysis purposes (e.g., tracking the success of the referral feature). You are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of all personally identifiable information that you knowingly provide.
Active8 may collect and store information, including personally identifiable information related to your usage of third-party sites that you access through This Website, including emails that you send through This Website.
In some cases, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information that you provide, such as search parameters in connection with a search you conduct through This Website, ratings and reviews, and zip code.
When users supply personally identifiable information about themselves for a specific purpose (for example, to register to use a feature on This Website, to purchase a product or service, to obtain a free listing, to register for a program or to use a feature of a program, to receive information, or to apply for a job), we may use, store and/or share such information for such purpose.
We also may use, store and/or share personally identifiable information users provide as we would use, store and/or share the same information obtained in a traditional non-electronic manner. We may also use, store and/or share this information to publish your name, address, and phone number in our directories (unless you have requested a non-published number), to contact you in connection with a program you are participating in, user reviews and/or to evaluate your service needs; and to contact you regarding additional services you may find useful. When users provide personally identifiable information in connection with a feature on This Website, we may also use, store and/or share such personally identifiable information in connection with the operation of such feature. (For example, if you register to use the personalized directory service, we may use the personally identifiable information you provide to give you a more personalized and useful service; and if you create a review of a business on This Website, we may publish your initials, city and state in connection with such a review.) When users provide personally identifiable information in connection with a contest, sweepstakes or other promotion that we may run on This Website, we may use, store and/or share such information to administer such contest, sweepstakes or promotion and to notify winners.
We may also use, store and/or share personally identifiable information you provide or that is automatically collected to communicate with you (e.g., to send you e-mails) and to otherwise serve you. For example, we may use your name and e-mail address to send you e-mails to (a) provide information regarding our company, marketing information about our products and services or the products and services of other companies, and newsletters; (b) conduct online surveys; (c) confirm your registration on This Website, a service registration, or orders placed online; and (d) otherwise communicate with you. However, you may request not to receive (i.e., “opt-out” of receiving) commercial e-mail messages from us by contacting us. Please note that we reserve the right to send certain types of e-mail messages that are not subject to opt-out (see information about e-mails, below) to online users, including those who have opted out of receiving commercial e-mail messages. Your personally identifiable information may also be used, stored and/or shared by non-“Active8 Family” companies, with which we have agreements, to provide you information about their products and services.
In addition, Active8 may use, store and/or share personally identifiable information you provide and information Active8 automatically collects through This Website (and may combine personally identifiable information you provide with information Active8 automatically collects through This Website and non-personally identifiable information you knowingly provide) as it deems appropriate to protect its property or other rights.
We use, store and/or share information Active8 automatically collects through This Website to improve This Website, to monitor its performance, to make This Website easier for you and other users to use, to manage features and programs made available through This Website; and to provide behavioral tracking data to non-“Active8 Family” companies, with which we have agreements, for the purpose of presenting you with, among other things, targeted advertising on third party websites.
We use information Active8 automatically collects through mobile products to improve our mobile products, to monitor its performance, to make mobile products easier for you and other users to use, to manage features and programs made available through mobile products.
A cookie is a small data string our server writes to your device’s internal drive that contains your unique User ID for This Website. Cookies help us to identify new and returning users to This Website, analyze click-stream data, and track historical activity on This Website, which allows us to give you a more personalized, useful experience on This Website. Cookies may be placed by us, by a third-party that provides services to us, or a non-“Active8 Family” company, with which we have an agreement.
A cookie cannot be used to access or otherwise compromise the data on your device or computer. However, customers are free to delete website cookies. Most internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your device or computer, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
You can choose to change your browser settings to disable cookies if you do not want us to establish and maintain a unique User ID. Please be aware that cookies may be required to complete certain functions on This Website, such as ordering products or services, and, also in connection with personalized sections of This Website. Some websites/ad serving companies have the ability to reestablish your history even after cookie deletion, if you re-enter the same site on another occasion, or some other site tracked by the ad serving company/network, and specifically provide personal data.
Deletion of cookies alone does not prevent ad serving companies from reestablishing history on a user. The user must either continue to decline cookies each time it reenters the site to keep the tracking severed, if desired, or opt-out. When you opt-out, your unique user ID cookie is erased, and you are reassigned an anonymous, non-ID cookie. This new cookie tells websites that you have opted out and they will then know not to attempt to assign other cookies to you in the future. Opt-out cookies do not contain a unique user ID number therefore websites are not able to identify your computer uniquely.
