How We Collect Information
We collect your information in the following ways:
Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you create an account, use the Services, fill out a form, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your email address, postal address and other contact or identifying information you choose to provide.
Information We Collect Automatically When You Use the Services
When you access or use our Services, we automatically collect information about you, including:
Log information: We log information about your use of the Services, including the type of browser you use, internet service provider, clickstream data, date/time stamp, pages and files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), your IP address and the page you visited before navigating to our Services.
Device information: We collect information about the computer or mobile device you use to access our Services, including the hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers and mobile network information.
Cookies: Like most websites, we use “cookies” and web log files to collect information to track site usage and trends, to improve our service, and to deliver a customized experience when you use our Services. A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your computer, mobile phone, or other device by a web server and enables us to recognize you when you return to our site or log into our service. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time – for example, when you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the site. We may also use “session ID cookies”, which expire after a short period of time or when you close your browser. Session ID cookies are used to identify a particular visit and are used to enable certain features of the site or service, to better understand how you interact with the site and service, and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the site. We set a cookie and use local storage in your browser that contains information that we use to identify you for the functional site features described below with respect to our third party vendors HubSpot and Google Analytics. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Website. We keep track of the pages you visit on the Website, in order to determine what parts of our store and the Website are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising on the Website to visitors whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
While Browsing our Website We use vendors that may collect personal information on our behalf:

We may also use third party service providers to collect and track statistical information regarding the use of the Website, and to prevent our servers from being abused.
Account Registration or Support Services Requests. When you create an account or submit a help desk ticket, our Services may ask you to “opt-in” to the collection of diagnostic information regarding your use of our Services in order to help our engineers improve our Services.

How You Can Opt Out of Web Tracking. There are several ways to opt out of web tracking:
Most browsers allow you to block third-party cookies or prevent cross-domain tracking. This will limit the cookies that can be set by third-party scripts. This will not completely eliminate tracking by some third-party services though as they may use first-party cookies. Most browsers also allow you ask not to be tracked (it sends the “Do Not Track” request header). If you have enabled this feature, we will not track the pages you visit in a way that enables us to connect them to your personal information. Your page views may still be collected anonymously though. Many of the third-party services we use for collecting anonymous data also respect the Do Not Track setting.
Your Massachusetts Privacy Rights
Massachusetts law permits residents of Massachusetts to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes.

CHAOSSEARCH qualifies for this alternative option. To opt out of having your information shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes, please insert description of opt out mechanism. If you are a Massachusetts resident and would like to make such a request, please contact us at email@example.com.
