Even if you do not register with Urbo, we collect non-personal information about your use of our sites.
We or our third party tracking utility company also use “web beacons” to collect anonymous information about your use of our sites and the websites of selected sponsors and advertisers, and your use of emails, special promotions or newsletters we send to you. Web beacons are tiny graphic image files embedded in a web page or email that provide a presence on the web page or email and send back to its home server information from the user’s browser. The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people open our emails, are using our sites and services, and selected affiliates’, sponsors’, and advertisers’ sites and communications, and for what purposes. Our web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our sites or apps, or those of our affiliates’ or sponsors’. We do not link non-personal information from web beacons to personal information without your permission, except in connection with our marketing, promotion, or similar initiatives alone or jointly with our business partners and affiliates.
We automatically track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our website or apps: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers accessing the website; (4) types of web browsers used to access the website; (5) referring source which may have sent you to the website; and (6) other information associated with the interaction of your browser and the website (collectively “traffic data”). We do not link non-personal information from traffic data to personal information without your permission, except in connection with our marketing, promotion, or similar initiatives alone or jointly with our business partners and affiliates.
Updating your personal information
You may update your personal information by logging into your account, clicking on the ‘my account’ tab and following the applicable directions.
In order for you to access certain areas of the sites, we may require you to register and provide us with certain personal information. Personal information includes but is not limited to contact data (such as your email address, phone number, year of birth and password). We use the personal information that you provide to respond to your questions, provide you the specific services you select, offer you other services we or our affiliates may provide and send you emails that are necessary or that we think may interest you. You may choose not to provide us with any personal information. In such case, you can still access and use much of the sites; however, you will not be able to access and use those portions of the sites that require your personal information and registration.
Email to you
We may use your contact data to send you information to contact you when necessary, including registration verification emails, and in conjunction with your use of certain services. In some cases, when you click on a link or an advertisement in an email, your browser may be momentarily directed to the website of a third party which, acting on behalf of Urbo (see section 5 below), notes or “counts” your response to the email before re-directing your browser to your selected destination; this re-direction process may not be apparent to you.
We may use your contact data to send you information about Urbo and our affiliates, or our products or services, to contact you when necessary and in conjunction with your use of certain services. We may use your traffic data to customise and tailor your experience on the sites, in emails and in other communications, displaying content, products or services that we think you might be interested in and according to your preferences.
