1. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
The information we collect from you enables us to fulfill your purchase benefits and other requests; send you information or content we believe may be of interest to you; and keep you abreast of any updates related to our Site and your membership. We also use this information to personalize and continually improve our Site, your experience, and ultimately serve you better.
Information We Collect Automatically: When you visit the Sites and/or register for an account, we may also collect certain additional information by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons, and other automated devices. A "cookie" is a text file that websites send to a visitor's computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor's browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A "web beacon" (also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF) is used to transmit information back to a web server.
We and/or our third party service partners may employ automated Canvas fingerprinting and other browser-fingerprinting techniques that extract and analyze information about your browser, operating system, and installed graphics hardware in conjunction with other user information (e.g. time-zone, language preference, etc.) to help verify your unique identity for fraud prevention purposes and to improve our Site and Services. By using our Site and Services, you consent to the use of these browser-fingerprinting technologies. See below for more information on Canvas fingerprinting and ways to detect or block it. We may also use third-party website analytics tools (such as Mouseflow, Google Analytics, and Facebook Insights) that collect information about visitor traffic on the Sites that help us continue to improve the Site, performance and user experiences.
The information we may collect by such automated means includes:
Information about the devices our visitors use to access the Internet (such as the IP address and the device, browser, domain name and operating system type)
URLs that refer visitors to our Sites
Dates and times of visits to our Sites
Information on actions taken on our Sites (such as page views and site navigation patterns)
A general geographic location (such as country and city) from which a visitor accesses our Sites
Search terms that visitors use to reach our Sites and the webpage that led you to the Sites
2. COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGY
Some of the cookies used by our Service are served by us, and some are served by third parties who are delivering services on our behalf. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser settings to prevent cookies, or notify you each time a cookie is sent. You can also learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org, which includes additional useful information on cookies and how to block them using different browsers. Please be aware that if cookies are disabled the features of the Service will not operate as intended. One of our cookies stores your authentication information so we know who you are and that you are securely logged into our Service.
Site Analytics: As noted, we may use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics, to evaluate usage of our Site. We also may use other analytic means to evaluate our Site. We use these tools to help us improve our Site, performance and user experiences.
Links: Beginest may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.
3. INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
We do not disclose your private personal information except in the limited circumstances described here.
Your Consent: We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application as login credentials when you register to create an account.
4. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We employ reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions, including, where appropriate, password protection, encryption, SSL, firewalls, and internal restrictions on who may access data to protect our Site and the information we collect from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your password private. Also, you should never share your login information with others. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
