We collect information about you in two ways: directly from your input (Personal Data) and through automated technologies on our Sites (non-personally identifiable information).
“Aggregate and Anonymous Information” is any information that cannot identify or be linked to a specific individual. For example, Astound Commerce may collect anonymous group data (demographics, online browsing habits, interests and preferences, aggregate traffic data, and so on) about users of our Sites.
“Personal Data” means personal information relating to you, as an identified or identifiable natural person, which may allow the natural person to be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person. Personal Data is also commonly referred to as “personal
information” or “personally identifiable information.”
The types of personal information that we collect directly from you may include
A web beacon is a small graphic image (often invisible) or other web programming code (also known as "1x1 GIFs" or "clear GIFs") usually used in conjunction with cookies that may be included in our web pages and email messages.

An embedded script is a programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with our Sites, such as the links you click on.
