2. Aggregate Data Collection: GENESIS tracks visits to our Site and uses visitor logs to compile anonymous aggregate statistics. This aggregate information is collected Site wide, and includes anonymous website statistics. In addition, when you browse our Site, our system automatically collects information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, domain names, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, pages viewed and the order of these page views, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the Site, improve the design of our Site, and otherwise enhance the services we provide. We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, statistical, and other non-personally identifiable information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, and other purposes. Any aggregated and statistical information shared in these contexts will not contain Personal Information.
When you access our Services 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 our Services. 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 our Services to us. A device identifier does not collect or share any personal information about you.
3. Other Data: If you decide to invite a third party to create an account, we will collect your and the third party’s names and e-mail addresses in order to send an e-mail and follow up with the third party. We rely upon you to obtain whatever consents from the third party that may be required by law to allow us to access and upload the third party’s names and e-mail addresses as required above. You or the third party may contact us at to request the removal of this information from our database.
