What information do we collect from users and how is it used?
The following describes the types of personal and other information we may collect about you, and how we use and maintain that information:
Registration. When you utilize the Service that we offer, we may ask that you register with Markerly and provide us with certain personal information, such as your email address, a password, your first and last name and other contact information and personal details. We request this information for identification purposes, to communicate with you regarding your account, and to facilitate the functioning of certain services. We may keep this information indefinitely.
Correspondence. If you correspond with us via email, we may gather in a file specific to you the information that you submit. We may keep this information indefinitely.
Promotions. We will collect information you give us when you participate in any promotion sponsored by Markerly, such as a sweepstakes or contest. You will typically be asked to provide your name, email address, and mailing address. We store this information in our database and will use it to communicate with you about the promotion. We may also use this information to promote the Service to you in the future, unless you inform us that you opt out from receiving such communications.
URL and IP addresses. Like many other providers of online services, we collect information about users’ navigation of our website and utilization of the Service. This information helps us to design the Service to better suit our users’ needs. For example, our website will track the URL that you visited before you came to our website, the URL to which you next go and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the Service. Your IP address also is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information.
marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze usage of the Service, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our Service’s content, layout and services. However, we only use information collected with cookies on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you.
Forums. We may make interactive forums available on our website. Any information that you post to such forum or otherwise choose to make publicly available via the Service, including personal information about you, may be disclosed and available to all users who have access to the forum and/ or the rest of the Service, and thus such information is no longer private. Please keep this in mind when considering what to post and make publicly available through our interactive forums.
