The data we receive from these third-party sites is dependent upon that third party’s policies and your privacy settings on that third-party site.

Personal Information Collected through Tracking Technologies
To provide a personalized and high-quality experience for our users, we, and our third-party partners, may use various technologies that automatically record certain technical information from your browser or device when you visit our Sites, read our emails, or otherwise engage with us. This information is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, Flash objects, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, file information, and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”).
We, and our third-party partners, use these Tracking Technologies to automatically collect usage and device information, such as:
- Information about how you access the Sites. This information includes your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, platform type, device type, operating system, date and time stamp, a unique ID that allows us to uniquely identify your browser, mobile device or your account, and other such information.
- Information about how you use the Sites. For example, the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave our Sites, the pages you visit, the links you click, how frequently you access the Sites, whether you open emails or click the links contained in emails, whether you access the Sites from multiple devices, and other actions you take on the Sites.
- Information about the computer, tablet, smartphone, or other device you use.

- Analytics information. We may collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Sites and to understand more about our users by monitoring aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage, and demographic patterns on our Sites.

- Cross-device tracking. We may also work with third party partners to employ technologies, including the application of statistical modeling tools, which permit us to recognize and contact you across multiple devices.
We, or the third party partners we use, may use the data collected through tracking technologies to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information, including targeted content and advertising; (c) identify and contact you across multiple devices; (d) provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Sites; (e) perform analytics and detect usage patterns on our Sites; (f) diagnose or fix technology problems; (g) detect or prevent fraud or other harmful activities; and (h) otherwise to plan for and enhance our service.

Sharing of Personal Information
Carrix processes the Personal Information of its Site visitors in the following ways:
- Within Carrix. We share Personal Information within Carrix companies, businesses, brands, and affiliated entities in our family of companies for purposes and uses that are consistent with this Policy. For example, we may share Personal Information about you to process and fulfill your order or to facilitate communication between you and a local Carrix representative.
- Service Providers. We may share Personal Information with our selected suppliers, service providers, and partner websites to facilitate providing the Sites or services to you. For example, we may provide such information to third parties that are involved with operating and maintaining the Site (including for example where another company provides website hosting, customer support, or email message deployment Sites for us), performing business and sales analysis, improving the Site, identifying and serving targeted advertisement or mailing services, among other things.
- Suppliers and Distributors. We share Personal Information with suppliers and distributors for purposes of developing and executing proposed and completed transactions facilitated by us, as well as to improve performance, products, and services. Our suppliers and distributors also use the Personal Information for their internal purposes (including administrative purposes).
- Business Transaction or Reorganization. In connection with a significant transaction or proposed transaction involving Carrix, such as a merger, acquisition, event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, we may transfer personal and other information to another company.
We may also share information with others in an aggregated or otherwise anonymized form that does not reasonably identify you directly as an individual.
Third Party Tracking and Online Advertising
Interest Based Advertising. Some of the Carrix entities may participate in interest-based advertising and use third party advertising companies to serve you targeted advertisements based on your browsing history. We may share, or we may permit third party online advertising networks, social media companies and other third-party services, to collect information about your use of our Site over time so that they may play or display targeted ads on other devices you may use, and on other Sites, services, including on Facebook. These third parties may collect information such as click stream information, browser type, time and date you visited the site, mobile device identifiers, and/or precise geolocation data and other information. We and our third-party partners use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, attribution, analytics, and market research.
Social Media Widgets and Advertising. Our Sites may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button, LinkedIn, or other widgets. These social media companies may recognize you and collect information about your visit to our Sites, and they may set a cookie or employ other tracking technologies. Your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of those companies.
We display targeted advertising to you through social media platforms, such as Facebook, Google, and others. These companies have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to direct advertisements to users who have shown interest in our services while those users are on the social media platform, or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics. These advertisements are governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies that provide them.
Cross-Device Linking. We, or our third-party partners, may link your various devices so that content you see on one device can result in relevant advertising on another device. We do this by collecting information about each device you use when you are logged in to our Sites. We may also work with third party partners who employ tracking technologies, or the application of statistical modeling tools, to determine if two or more devices are linked to a single user or household. We may share a common account identifier (such as an email address or user ID) with third party advertising partners to help recognize you across devices. We, and our partners, can use this cross-device linkage to serve interest-based advertising and other personalized content to you across your devices, to perform analytics and to measure the performance of our advertising campaigns.
- Cookies and Flash cookies. Most browsers allow you to adjust your browser settings to: (i) notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) set your browser to automatically reject cookies. Blocking or deleting cookies may negatively impact your experience using the Site, as some features and services on our Sites may not work properly.
- Interest-based advertising. To learn about interest-based advertising and how you may be able to opt-out of some of this advertising, you may wish to visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s online resources, at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices, and/or the DAA’s resources at aboutads.info/choices. Please note that opting-out of receiving interest-based advertising through the NAI’s and DAA’s online resources will only opt-out a user from receiving interest-based ads on that specific browser or device, but the user may still receive interest-based ads on his or her other devices. You must perform the opt-out on each browser or device you use.
- Mobile advertising. You may also be able to limit interest-based advertising through the settings on your mobile device by selecting “limit ad tracking” (iOS) or “opt-out of interest-based ads” (Android). You may also be able to opt-out of some—but not all—interest-based ads served by mobile ad networks by visiting http://youradchoices.com/appchoices and downloading the mobile AppChoices app.
Some of these opt-outs may not be effective unless your browser is set to accept cookies. If you delete cookies, change your browser settings, switch browsers or computers, or use another operating system, you will need to opt-out again.
Google Analytics and Advertising
We may use Google Analytics to recognize you and link the devices you use when you visit our site on your browser or mobile device or otherwise engage with us. We share a unique identifier, like a user ID or hashed email address, with Google to facilitate the service. Google Analytics allows us to better understand how our users interact with our Site and to tailor our advertisements and content to you. For information on how Google Analytics collects and processes data, as well as how you can control information sent to Google, review Google’s site “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

These features enable us to use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick advertising cookie) or other third-party cookies together to inform, optimize, and display ads based on your past visits to the Sites. You may control your advertising preferences or opt-out of certain Google advertising products by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager, currently available at https://google.com/ads/preferences or by vising NAI’s online resources at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices.
