Which information we may collect on our Users?
We may collect two types of data and information from our Users:
The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information ("Non-personal Information”). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us while such User is entering and/or using the Site and/or Platform and/or operating any synthetic computer vision or other algorithm. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, algorithm’s data, results and performance, behavioral information and aggregated information, and may contain, among other things, the activity of the User on the Site and/or Platform, type of operating system, type of the User’s device and its version, User's ‘click-stream’ on the Site and/or Platform, product interaction, type of browser and keyboard features, the hardware specifications of such device (including screen resolution), time spent on various screens of the Site and/or Platform, User demographics, traffic patterns, etc. (collectively, "Technical and Behavioral Information”).
The second type of information is any information that may be used, either alone or in combination with other information, to personally identify an individual, including, but not limited to, first and last name, phone number, country of residence, company name and email address, or other contact information ("Personal Information”). This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature.
