SECTION 1 – WHAT INFORMATION MerchMixer COLLECTS
MerchMixer collects the following information:
To access certain features of the Services, you must create an account. When you create or edit your account, MerchMixer collects the personal information that you submit during that process, such as your name and your email address.
Facebook Connect/Sign-In Services
MerchMixer offers the option of logging into the Services through sign-in services, such as Facebook. These services authenticate your identity and provide you with the option to share certain personal information. MerchMixer collects information this way in accordance with the sign-in service provider’s policies and terms. This information may include: (1) your name; (2) your sign-in service user identification number or user name; (3) your locale, including city, state, and country; (4) your sex; (5) your birthdate; (6) your email address; and (7) your profile picture or its URL.
Billing and Payment Information
When you contact customer service, MerchMixer collects your name, email address, and other information submitted during that process. MerchMixer uses this information to address your concerns and to improve the Services.
MerchMixer acquires information about you if you participate in questionnaires, surveys, or contests related to the Services. Participation in these events is voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether to disclose the related information. But if you choose to participate, the event’s administrator uses this information to determine winners, award prizes, and generally manage the event, as applicable. MerchMixer may also use this information to assist in the event’s administration, to monitor traffic, and to personalize and improve the Services.
Whenever anyone uses the Services, MerchMixer’s servers automatically collect certain information, such as the IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, mobile carrier, device and application IDs, search terms, and cookie information. MerchMixer uses this data to provide, measure, customize, develop, analyze, and improve the Services.
A cookie is a small text file that is transferred to your computer (including mobile device) to identify that computer and to “remember” things about your visit, such as your preferences, user name, and password. Information in a cookie may be linked to personal information, such as your user ID. MerchMixer uses this information to improve the Services and to tailor recommendations to your interests. You can disable cookies at any time, although you may not be able to access or use certain features of the Services if you do so.
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
MerchMixer uses, or its third-party tracking utility partners use, a software technology called clear gifs (or “Web Beacons” or “Web Bugs”) that help manage content on MerchMixer’s website by informing MerchMixer 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 users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on webpages and emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. MerchMixer may associate this information with your IP address or device identifier, but it does not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to your personal information.
When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access the Services, MerchMixer may access, collect, monitor, store on your device and remotely store “device identifiers”. Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device that uniquely identify your mobile device. 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 MerchMixer. A device identifier may deliver information to MerchMixer or to a third-party partner about how you use the Services and may help MerchMixer or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Services may not function properly if the device identifiers are impaired or disabled.

SECTION 5 – COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY
MerchMixer takes reasonable measures to protect your information from unauthorized access and against loss, misuse, and alteration by third parties. Although MerchMixer makes reasonable, good faith efforts to store the information collected through the Services in a private, secure operating environment, MerchMixer cannot guarantee its absolute security during its transmission or its storage.

SECTION 7 – DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Some web browsers offer a “Do No Track” (“DNT”) signal. A DNT signal is an HTTP header field indicating your preference regarding tracking or cross-site user tracking. MerchMixer does not respond to DNT signals. MerchMixer also works with third parties that use tracking technologies on the Services in order to provide tailored advertisements on MerchMixer’s behalf and on behalf of other advertisers across the Internet.
