WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED?
Depending on your use of the Site, we may collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you. Such information may include your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and billing and credit card information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information, any single item of which, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, including demographic information (such as age, profession, gender, current location, zip code, birth date, or year of birth), IP addresses, browser types, unique device identifiers, device types, requested URL, referring URL, browser language, the pages you view, the date and time of your visit, domain names, and statistical data involving the use of the Site. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be considered a part of your personally identifiable information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered non-personally identifiable information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-personally identifiable information (for example, your viewing preferences).
We will collect personally identifiable information that you submit to us. We may also receive personally identifiable information about you from third parties providing credit and debit card authorization and fraud screening services as part of your use of the Site.
Registering to Use the Site and in the Course of Using the Site.
You may be required to establish an account in order to take advantage of certain features of the Site. If so, if you wish to establish an account you will be required to provide us with information (including personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information) such as name, postal address, e-mail address, birth date and credit card and billing information. We may also receive personally identifiable information about you from third parties providing credit and debit card authorization and fraud screening services as part of the registration process. In addition, we may obtain your personally identifiable information from you if you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments. Also, we will have access to any personally identifiable information that you choose to share through the Site.
Cookies and Action Tags.
We may collect non-personally identifiable information passively using “cookies” and “action tags.”
“Cookies” are small text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device in order to identify your Web browser and the activities of your computer on the Site and other websites. Cookies can be used to personalize your experience on the Site (such as dynamically generating content on webpages specifically designed for you), to assist you in using the Site (such as saving time by not having to reenter your name each time you use the Site), to allow us to statistically monitor how you are using the Site to help us improve our offerings, and to determine the popularity of certain content.
You do not have to accept cookies to use the Site. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the “Help” section of the toolbar. However, if you reject cookies, certain features or resources of the Site may not work properly or at all and you may experience some loss of convenience.
For the avoidance of doubt, this Site uses third-party service platforms (including to help analyze how users use the Site). These third-party service platforms may place cookies on your computer or mobile device. If you would like to disable “third party” cookies, you may be able to turn them off by going to the third party’s website.
Here is a link to the main third-party platform we use: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
“Action tags,” also known as web beacons or gif tags, are a web technology used to help track website usage information, such as how many times a specific page has been viewed. Action tags are invisible to you, and any portion of the Site, including advertisements, or e-mail sent on our behalf, may contain action tags.
By using cookies and action tags together, we are able to gain valuable information to improve the Site and measure the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns.
We also collect non-personally identifiable information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Site. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to monitor the use of the Site, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to personally identifiable information for these and other purposes such as personalizing your experience on the Site and evaluating the Site in general.
DOES DATA PLUS MATH COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE?
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Site is not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13.
WHAT DOES DATA PLUS MATH DO WITH THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
In general, we use the information collected to provide the Site to you and process your transactions, to help us understand who uses the Site, for internal operations such as operating and improving the Site, to contact you for customer service and billing purposes, and, if you “opt in”, so that we and third parties can contact you about products and services that may be of interest to you.
We may use your information to send you a welcoming e-mail that may confirm your user name and password. If you opt in, we and third parties may send you electronic newsletters, contact you about the Site, products, services, information and news that may be of interest to you, and provide you with targeted feedback. If you no longer desire to receive these communications, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences. If you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your information (including personally identifiable information) to respond to your questions or comments, and we may file your questions or comments (with your information) for future reference. We may also use the information collected to send announcements and updates regarding the Site or, if applicable, about your billing account status. You will not be able to unsubscribe from these Site announcements and updates as they contain important information relevant to your use of the Site.
We may also use the information gathered to perform statistical analysis of user behavior or to evaluate and improve the Site. We may link some of this information to personally identifiable information for internal purposes or to improve your experience with the Site.
WHEN DOES DATA PLUS MATH DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES?
Laws and Legal Rights.
We may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process. We may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating any agreement with Data Plus Math, to detect fraud, for assistance with a delinquent account, or to protect the safety and/or security of our users, the Site or the general public.
Third Parties Generally.
We may provide to third parties non-personally identifiable information, including where such information is combined with similar information of other users of the Site. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who use the Site, the demographic breakdown of our users of the Site, or the products and/or services purchased using the Site and the vendors of such products and services. If you opt in, we may also provide to third parties personally identifiable information. For example, we might share our users’ responses to questionnaires and e-mail addresses with third parties in order for third parties to contact users about products and services that may be of interest. In addition to the above, when users use our Site, third parties (including without limitation third-party analytics providers and commercial partners) may directly collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information about our users’ online activities over time and across different websites. The third parties to which we may provide or who may independently directly collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information may include providers of products or services (including analytics service providers, vendors, consultants and website tracking services), customers, customer partners and vendors or consultants of customers or customer partners, merchants, affiliates and other actual or potential commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.
Please note in particular that the Site uses Google Analytics, including its data reporting features. Information collected by Google Analytics includes but is not limited to web metrics. For information on how Google Analytics collects and processes data, please see the site “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”, currently located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. For information on opting out of Google Analytics, we encourage you to visit Google’s website, including its list of currently available opt-out options presently located at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

IS THE INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH THE SITE SECURE?
We want your information (including personally identifiable information) to remain secure. We strive to provide transmission of your information from your computer or mobile device to our servers through techniques that are consistent with industry standards and to employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.
Notwithstanding the above, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk
COULD MY INFORMATION BE TRANSFERRED TO OTHER COUNTRIES?
Personally identifiable information collected on the Site may be transferred from time to time to our offices or personnel, or to third parties, located throughout the world, and the Site may be viewed and hosted anywhere in the world, including countries that may not have laws of general applicability regulating the use and transfer of such data. By using the Site and submitting such information on it, you voluntarily consent to the trans-border transfer and hosting of such information. If you are a user accessing the Site from a jurisdiction with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from those of the United States, please be advised that all aspects of the Site are governed by the internal laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, USA, regardless of your location.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE REGARDING THE COLLECTION, DISCLOSURE AND DISTRIBUTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?
DO NOT TRACK
The term “Do Not Track” refers to a HTTP header offered by certain web browsers to request that websites refrain from tracking the user. We take no action in response to Do Not Track requests.
CAN I UPDATE OR CORRECT MY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?
You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. After receiving your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to update, correct, change, or delete, as appropriate, all personally identifiable information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media as appropriate, as soon as and to the extent reasonably practicable.
