2. DATA COLLECTION
Mainly we collect the following data:
2.1 Automatic Information Collection
Automatic information collection is the information collected from the user when the user accesses our website and this information may include the user’s IP address, browser type, device, and OS type, access dates and times, and any pages viewed. Any information pertaining to website interaction (i.e. reviews, feedback, and comments) may be collected, while some information may be collected automatically through cookies.
Cookies may be placed in the user’s device browser files, or the device’s IP address may be tracked to provide you with automated features. Cookies are tracking files that use identifiers sent by a website or a hosting server to a browser, which then stores those files. Cookies are stored in order to remember users, retain user preferences, and compile aggregated statistics about user activity. There are two types of cookies which are called “Session Cookies” and “Permanent Cookies”. Session cookies remain in the user’s browser only as long as the user browses the website and is removed when the user leaves the website, while permanent cookies remain in the browser until they expire or the user deletes the cookies. Permanent cookies remember login information, previous user search information, checkout, and cart details. Cookies do not have any information that can reveal a user’s personal identity.
Cookies provide a specific type of information about user interaction with the sending website, which includes website access, page views, the time a user has spent on the website, link clicks, and other similar relevant actions. This information allows us to track and understand user activity over a period of time to help us improve our services.
3.1. “Do Not Track” (DNT) Signals
DNT is a form of technology that authorizes a user using a specific browser to allow or disallow collecting information through that specific browser. However, since, there are no legislations or proper mechanisms for browsers to do that, therefore, our website doesn’t respond to DNT signals.
