In addition to the uses of Collected Information described above, we may also use information collected when you access or use our FlexScore product, including personally identifiable information that you provide, to inform you about third-party products or services that may be of interest to you.
We may use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags and scripts on our System. By placing a small file known as a “cookie” on your computer (or other device), United Capital and its partners, affiliates or third party providers may passively gather information about your use of the System for several reasons, including, but not limited to, the following: statistics collection and analysis, System optimization, analytics (as described below), market research, and maintenance of user login information. For example, cookies on the Websites may track “macro” information, such as the number of independent visits made to the Websites each day, or “micro” information, such as individual users’ IP addresses, downloads, and related traffic history (some of this information may be collected by web beacons, see below). The information that we and our third party service providers track with cookies may include, but is not necessarily limited to, the type of browser (such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer) and Internet-connected device being used to access the System, your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, your home domain or Internet service provider, your referrer URL (which is the URL for the website that you were viewing prior to visiting the System), how you were directed to the System, which specific pages you access on the System, how long you view each page, the time and date you access our System and the total number of visitors to the System and any portions thereof. We may also use your IP address to determine the general physical location of your computer or device and understand from what geographic locations our System visitors come and to tailor our services to meet our visitors’ needs (e.g., if a visitor is from California, we may use geolocation information to ensure our California team responds to such visitor).
Most popular Internet browser applications will allow you to configure the browser so as not to accept cookies. However, setting your browser to reject cookies may, in certain instances, prevent you from taking full advantage of the System (or some portion thereof) and its capabilities, or cause some features of the System to function improperly or more slowly.
The Websites use certain web analytics services provided by third parties in order to better understand your use of our Websites (or other portions of the System) and how we can improve the System. Such analytics providers may collect information such as how often users visit the System, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other websites they used prior to coming to the System. We do not combine the information collected through the use of such analytics services with your Personal Information. Such third party analytics providers may utilize the data collected to track and examine use of the System, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with us.
Some of the areas of the System may also contain electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes known as clear gifs) that allow United Capital, and its third party providers or affiliates, to count and track users who have visited certain portions of the System and other similar traffic history. Web beacons collect only limited information, including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. Web beacons do not collect any of your Personal Information.
