In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, CoInspect may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries or contact you based on your interest to receive such communications.

Information You Provide:You provide us information about yourself, such as your name and e-mail address, if you register for an account with the CoInspect Service, including by connecting with the CoInspect Service via a third-party service, or by “following,” “becoming a fan,” downloading the CoInspect software application, etc., on a third party website or network. Your name, email address and other information you choose to provide on the CoInspect Service may be viewable and discoverable by other users, in accordance with your settings on the Service.

We may use your email address to send you Service-related notices (including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail). We may also use your contact information to send you marketing messages. If you don’t want to receive these messages, you can opt out by following the instructions in the message. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses.

If you choose to use our invitation service to invite a friend to the CoInspect Service, we will ask you for that person’s email address and automatically send an email invitation.

CoInspect and CoInspect employees reserve the right to view your Content in order to: (i) to operate, maintain, provide or improve the CoInspect Service; (ii) help you use the CoInspect Service and resolve your support requests; or (iii) as CoInspect believes, in its sole opinion, is necessary to comply with or avoid the violation of applicable law or regulation or to cooperate with law enforcement.

Cookies:The CoInspect Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize CoInspect pages, or register with CoInspect's site or services, a cookie helps CoInspect to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same CoInspect website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the CoInspect features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the CoInspect Service or Web sites you visit. CoInspect keeps track of the Web sites and pages you visit within CoInspect, in order to determine what CoInspect services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within CoInspect to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Log Files: CoInspect also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites using log files. There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by CoInspect. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by CoInspect for the operation of the CoInspect Service, to maintain quality of the CoInspect Service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the CoInspect Web site. For these purposes, we do link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information such as name, email address, address, and phone number.

Clear Gifs Information:When you use the CoInspect Service, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns.Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customer’s personally identifiable information. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see Choice and Opt-out.

Geo-Location Information:When you use the Service by or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your mobile device. Location data may convey information about how you browse the Service to us.Location data may be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information. Some features of the Service, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled..

Device Identifiers:When you access the Service by or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device and are used to enhance the Service. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by us. A device identifier may convey information about how you use the Service to us. A device identifier does not collect or share any personally identifiable information about you. A device identifier may be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers are impaired or disabled. CoInspect may access, collect and/or store device identifiers upon enabling CoInspect's Services.

Third Party Tools:CoInspect uses third party analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, to help understand use of the CoInspect Web site and Service. Many of these tools collect the information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including cookies and your IP address. These analytics tools also receive this information and their use of it is governed by their privacy policy. The use of cookies and web beacons by any tracking utility company is not covered by our privacy policy.

Third Party Services:We may share your information with a third party application with your consent, for example when you choose to access our Services through such an application.

How We Protect Your Information

No method of safeguarding information is 100% secure. CoInspect uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We host data in commercially provided third party data centers, and implement access restrictions on our servers to secure our network and better protect your information.
