The Information We Collect
When you visit our Service we may collect information regarding your visit from your computer. Such information helps us to determine information about how you found our Service, the date that you visited our Service and search engines that may have led you to our Service. We collect this information in order to continually improve and enhance the functionality of the Service.
Generally, you may provide us with two types of information, User Content, which may include Personally Identifiable Information, and Website Usage Information, both of which are discussed in greater detail below.
1. Personal Information You Choose to Provide.
a. Sign-Up Information and Profile. We’ll ask you to provide certain information if you choose to register with SmokeD, including your name, email address, your date of birth, address, telephone number, and other information (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”). ITN complies with the California Online Privacy Protection Act of 2003, as amended (“CalOPPA”) with respect to Personally Identifiable Information about you (the individual consumer) collected online and maintained in an accessible form by us (the operator).
Do not supply to us or disclose on the Service any Personally Identifiable Information of any person under 13 years of age, as we do not intend to collect information from anyone under 13 or invite to them to participate in the Service. If you are over 13 years of age but under 18 years of age, you are only able to utilize the Service under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian, and we may require the collection of Personally Identifiable Information from your parent (including the parent’s full name, email address, and credit card billing information including mailing address) for you to acquire a paid Membership Account. If you are over 13 years of age but under 18 years of age, the Service does not condition your participation in an online activity on you providing more information than is reasonably necessary for that activity.
b. User Content. Our Service may offer its users to the opportunity to post User Content, comments, reviews, and tag messages via bulletin boards, blogs, articles, and chat rooms. If you choose to use these features, you should be aware that any Personally Identifiable Information you submit through these features can be read, collected, or used by other viewers and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personally Identifiable Information you choose to submit in these forums.
c. Questionnaires and Surveys. We may occasionally ask users of our Service to complete online surveys, questionnaires, and opinion polls about their activities, attitudes, and interests. These surveys help us to better serve you and improve the usefulness and features of the Service. In requesting your participation in these surveys we may ask you to provide your name and email address to us.
d. Contact Us. If you email us through the contact us link on our Service, we may ask you for information such as your name and email address so we can respond to your questions and comments. If you choose to correspond with us via email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our response to you. In certain cases, and with your permission, we may post content from your emails to us on the Service.
2. Website Usage Information.
When you visit our Website, our computer may ask your computer for permission to employ the use of a session or persistent cookie. Our Website will then send a cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it.
Most web browsers can be adjusted to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with the opportunity to refuse that cookie. However, refusing a cookie may, in some cases, preclude you from using, or negatively impact the display or function of, our Website or certain areas or features of our Website. You may choose not to receive cookies from SmokeD by following instructions in your web browser’s “help” file, but this may make certain features of the Services inaccessible to you.
b. Clear GIFs/Beacons. When visiting our Website, we may also use “Clear GIFs” (aka “web beacons” or “pixel tags”) or similar technologies in our Website and/or in our communications with you. A Clear GIF is typically a one-pixel, transparent image located on a web page or in an e-mail or other type of message, which helps us to verify an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or message. Clear GIFs allow us to know whether you have viewed a web page prior to visiting our Website and may enable us to relate such information to other information, including your Personally Identifiable Information. We use information provided from Clear GIFs to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and make our Service better for our users.
c. IP Address and Clickstream Data. Our servers automatically collect data about your Internet Protocol address when you visit us. When you request pages from our Website, our servers may log your IP Address and sometimes your domain name. Our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another website or a search engine); the pages you visit on this Website; the website you visit after this Website; other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on this Website or a referral website; and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers. We use this information for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to analyze general usage patterns, and to administer our Website. Such information may also be used to gather broad demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider. SmokeD may aggregate user information in a non-personally identifiable manner to share with advertisers, to enhance the Website with new features, and for our general business purposes.
Any or all of these activities with regard to the above-described Website Usage Information may be performed on our behalf by our third-party service providers.
