- NAVIGATIONAL INFORMATION
We use “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 pages on our Websites, or register for the Subscription Service, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customized features.
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 Nactivate Subscription Service or Websites you visit. Nactivate keeps track of the Websites and pages you visit in order to determine what portion of the Websites or Subscription Service is the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver customized content and promotions within the Websites and Subscription Service to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
5.2. Log Files
We may collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites using log files that are not associated with your name or other Personal Information. There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by us. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, internet service provider (ISP), the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, clickstream data, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Nactivate for the operation of the Subscription Service, to maintain quality of the Subscription Service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Nactivate Website. For these purposes, we may link this automatically collected data to Personal Information such as name, email address, address, and phone number.
5.3. Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web Beacons/web Bugs), that help us better manage the Websites and Subscription Service by informing us what content is effective. 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 webpages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our Websites features and marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to our customers’ Personal Information.
5.4. Navigational Information Collected by Our Customers
Our customers can use the tools we provide, as well as tools provided by third parties, to collect Navigational Information when you visit their webpages or applications on the Subscription Service. Nactivate does not control our customers’ use of these tools, nor do we control the information they collect or how they use it.
5.5. Single Sign-On
You may have access to log in to our Subscription Services using a Single Sign-on (SSO) service like your Google account or corporate login. This service will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain Personal Information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign-up form. Such SSO services may give you the option to post information about your activities on our Subscription Services to your profile page to share with others within your network.

This imported data includes the names and email addresses of individuals to whom they have sent an email to or received an email from.

At any point in time, a customer may opt to cease syncing their Google Data data. Additionally, should a customer delete an imported record from the Subscription Service, this will prevent such record from futher import.
