INFORMATION OFFERPOP COLLECTS
In addition to the information identified above, and regardless of the type of User you are, when you visit the Site, Offerpop's servers and our third party tracking-utility partners gather certain information automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website through log files. This information may include, but is not limited to, your computer's Internet Protocol address, browser type, the web page you were visiting before you came to our Site and information you search for on our Site.
Cookies. Like many websites, Offerpop also uses "cookies" to collect information. We do link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Offerpop uses "persistent cookies" to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Site; and we use "session ID cookies" to enable certain features of the Site, to better understand how you interact with the Site and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Site. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of our services.
We employ or our third party service providers employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers' personally identifiable information.
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
Flash cookies. Offerpop also uses Local Shared Objects or "Flash Cookies" to collect data pertaining to use of the Offerpop website. These Flash Cookies affect only Website Users and Service Users, and do not affect Social Users. Flash Cookies are pieces of data that websites which use Adobe Flash may store on a user's computer. Flash Cookies contain data stored by individual websites, and by default, Flash Player does not seek the user's permission to store Flash Cookies on your hard disk. You should be aware that some web browsers, and many older versions of the most popular browsers, may not permit you to block the use of Flash Cookies; in addition, browser settings that block conventional cookies may not affect Flash Cookies. On the latest versions of some popular browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer), you may adjust browser settings to block the use of Flash Cookies and, for some browsers, add on programs are available to assist in this process. Another method of preventing Flash cookies from being placed, in addition to adjusting the settings on your updated browser, is to adjust your preferences in the Macromedia Website Privacy Settings Panel at www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help.
