b) Information we collect automatically
Like most online services, we automatically receive standard technical information when you use the Website and App. We collect this information through browser cookies, pixel tags, web server logs, web beacons, embedded scripts, and similar technologies. These features enable us to personalize your experience using our Website and Apps, understand how you use them, and improve and further develop our Services. We collect this information as follows:
- Pixel Tags: Certain websites contain electronic images known as pixel tags (also called web beacons or gifs) that we use to help deliver and recognize cookies on our Website, count users who have visited those sites, and gather usage and performance data. We also include pixels in our emails to tell if you open and act on them.
- Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Website, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Website, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
- Log files: Like most standard website servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses etc. are tied to personally identifiable information to enable our web-based service.
- Device information: We collect information about the device you use to access or use the Website and Apps, including the hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers, network information, and information about your use of our applications.
- Geolocation information: We may automatically collect geolocation information from your device, your wireless carrier, or certain third-party service providers (“Geolocation Information”). You may control the collection of Geolocation Information through the user settings on your device. You may decline to allow us to collect such Geolocation Information, in which case we may not be able to provide certain services to you.
c) Information we collect from other sources, including our social media pages
If you connect to the Services using credentials from social media services such as Facebook or Google (“Social Media Services”), we will have access to certain information from that Social Media Service, such as your name, email address, advertising metrics, account and content analytics in accordance with the authorization procedures determined by such Social Media Service.

Third parties such as advertising networks and analytics providers may also collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and devices when you access or use the Website and Apps.

e) For legal purposes
To the extent permitted by law, we may also disclose Your Data when required by law, court order, or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency, or whenever we believe that disclosing such information is necessary or advisable, for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of Curastory or others.
