TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The Conexión Latina gathers the following types of information from its website:
Email Newsletters. We may offer you the opportunity to subscribe Conexión Latina emails and updates on topics that we believe are of interest to you. These emails may include deals negotiated with Service Providers, recommendations, best practices, and other topics. If you have opted to receive these emails, you may always unsubscribe later if you decide not to receive more emails from us. Each email will include instructions on how to unsubscribe from future issues by using either a designated reply email address or hyperlink.
Cookies. To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors and to help us tailor our website to your needs, Conexión Latina tracks the pages visited by our users by placing a “cookie,” a small entry in text file, on your hard drive. The cookie doesn’t personally identify you, just the computer or mobile device that you use to access our website. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself, Conexión Latina won’t know who you are, even if a cookie is placed on your computer or mobile device after visiting the Conexión Latina website. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you voluntarily supply. A cookie can’t read unrelated data off your hard drive.
You can configure your browser’s cookie setting through the “options” menu on most commercially available web browsers, including options to set your browser to notify you before accepting a cookie or to disable cookies entirely. Also, you can configure your browser not to accept cookies at all. If you do this, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized benefits provided to other visitors to our website which allow cookies.
Service Providers that provide products or services through our website may also assign their own cookies to your browser, a process that we don’t control.
Web Beacons. Our web pages may contain electronic images (called “single-pixel GIFs” or “web beacons”) that allow us and our Affiliates, Service Providers, and, possibly our advertisers to count users who have visited particular pages of this site or sites owned or operated by third parties or to access certain cookies. We may use these tools and other technologies to recognize which pages users visit, and the links on which they click. These features may also be included in our email newsletters so that we can learn which messages have been opened and acted upon. We may also be able to verify your online purchases via our website or from third-party sites that have agreed to share such information with us. We may use “clickstream” data collected using web beacons and cookies to help us tailor the content of promotional messages, including email messages, to the perceived interests of our users.
Browser Level Information and IP Addresses. Conexión Latina´s web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer configuration or your mobile device when you visit our website, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system you’re running, the resolution of your computer monitor, the Web website that referred you, the type of device you are using, and your IP address. (Your IP address is a numerical address that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data such as the web pages you want to view can be transmitted to you.) We also use IP address information for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. Your IP address does not tell us who you are. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our website to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our website.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Why we want to know. We collect information in order to make the Conexión Latina website more useful and relevant to you. For example, we may ask you for an address so that you can map a route from your work or home address to that of a Service Provider, or so you can narrow your search to businesses that serve your neighborhood.
We also may use such information to tell our Service Providers how many people will see their offer and how often our users are looking at their offers on our service — in other words, how effective their offer is likely to be. So it’s important that Conexión Latina be able to tell Service Providers who our audience is.
Service Providers. Conexión Latina recommends the goods and services of various Service Providers who are featured on the site. Conexión Latina´s website may be link to these Service Providers and we may share any of the information that we collect from you through the website (e.g., registration information, anonymous information collected through cookies on your browser or through web beacons, information you submit to us to enter a promotion offered through the website, etc.) with such Service Providers. Their use of the information may be subject to the terms of their respective privacy policies, which you can find on their websites.
Statistical Information. Much of the information we collect is in the form of aggregated statistics, such as the traffic that visits various pages within our sites, and the habits and preferences of our audience. Such aggregated information does not include any information that would identify you personally. We may use such aggregated information and disclose it to third parties as we see fit.
Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. The Conexión Latina website is not directed to anyone under the age of 18. The website does not knowingly collect or solicit information from anyone under the age of 18, or allow anyone under the age of 18 to sign up for the Service. In the event that we learn that we have gathered personal information from anyone under the age of 18 without the consent of a parent or guardian, we will delete that information as soon as possible. If you believe we have collected such information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove such information from our records as soon as possible.
OPTING IN/OPTING OUT
If you have subscribed to our email newsletters, you will always have the opportunity to unsubscribe from future mailings (for example, by clicking on an unsubscribe link in an email newsletter or by modifying your account settings on our website).
You agree, however, that, subject to applicable law, Conexión Latina may use your information to contact you for customer service, to inform you of important changes or additions to our website or the services offered over our website, and to send you administrative notices or any communications relevant to your use of our website.
If you have submitted your information on a page provided in conjunction with one of our Service Providers, the information you submit may be jointly maintained by us and the Service Provider.
STORAGE OF INFORMATION
All information gathered on our Conexión Latina website is stored within a database operated by us or by a Service Provider on our behalf. Prior to our receipt of this information, however, we cannot guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the internet.
