INFORMATION Whirleo COLLECTS FROM YOU
Whirleo may collect information through your active submission of information or passively through use of automated technologies.
Active Information CollectionMuch of the personally identifiable information we collect from our visitors is submitted voluntarily in response to our specific requests for such information. For example, visitors may provide us with personal information to sign up for our newsletter or in response to polls or other interactivity incorporated into the Site. We do not require users to provide any more information than necessary to participate in the related activity.
The information we actively collect from you may include some or all of the following: name, date of birth, address, email address, username, password and/or gender.
For some of our online activities - such as polls or surveys - we may ask users to provide information that is not personally identifiable, such as country of residence, hobbies or feedback or suggestions for the Site.
Passive Information CollectionAs you navigate through the Site, other information may be collected through use of technologies, which are common among websites and online environments. For example, we may track Internet protocol ("IP") addresses, which is a unique string of numbers assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider.
We also use "cookies," which are small pieces of information or files that a website puts on your computer when you explore the Site. The cookies we use allow us to collect, store and sometimes track information about your use of the Site or to save your settings (such as your username and password) or provide a customized experience.
In addition to our active information collection efforts, we may also use technology to gather operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems and Internet service providers. This information cannot be used to identify you personally.
