What information do we own about you?
The information we obtain when you interact with Services falls into two categories: (i) personal information including personal information you have already provided in case of: signing up, sending a request, filling out a questionnaire, register on a site, answering a quiz, or mentioning your e-mail; 2) Non-personal information collected through technological ways including the tracking of information collected by our website as well as from third parties.
Services registration may require provision of some personal information, including your email address and demographic information (address, age, gender, family income, career field and current job ) for completing registration.
Registration in social networking sites can save your IP address, the page you visit on our site, and can add internet cookies to enable the property to enable registration option work properly. Features and tools of social networking sites are hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site.
Readers ‘Questionnaires , Readers’ Committees and Market Research
We may collect your personal information through voluntary questionnaires conducted through the services. Data can be collected through “Services”, by phone number or email. Only information that you provide can be shared with advertisers and partners, unless otherwise notified when the information is collected.
The information we collect through the use of technology
We use many online techniques to manage and track Services use. The non-personal information we collect may be combined with the use of these techniques with other information about you.
We can collect non-personal information about your computer, mobile phone, or other devices that you use to access Services, such as your IP address, location information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other procedural information.
Cookies, web beacons, local storage and other similar technologies
We may transfer unauthorized use of our website to third parties in order to serve ads to you when you visit other sites.
Data Analysis, registration files and reading record
As in most websites, we collect some information automatically, and store it in log files. This information may include IP addresses (region or general location where you access the Internet through your computer or any other device of your own), browser type, operating system, and other usage information about the use of the Services, including a record of pages you browse.
We may automatically combine this information with other information we collect about you. The goal is to improve our services, including personalized recommendations, advertising, and currency display, to improve marketing and track access through the devices you use to access the Services.
We have used third parties to provide us with information, reports and analysis on the usage and patterns of browsing of our users. These parties may independently record the type of device and operating system you are using, general location information, and the activity that occurs within our applications, such as the number of times they are used.
Some of our apps on mobile devices can offer location-based content where you’re located, if you choose to turn on that feature in the app. If you turn on location-based features, your current location will be stored locally on your device, and the app will use it later. If you choose to save a location-based search to your record, we store that information on our servers. If you do not turn on the location-based service, or if the app does not have this property, the app will not transfer location information to us, nor will we collect or store it.
Ads in our apps are not targeted to you based on your current GPS location, but can be targeted to you based on your login address or your device’s IP address.
Some services and advertisements included in the “Services”, through the site of Ajel online newspaper and on our mobile applications, are provided or operated by third party companies that may collect information about your use of the Services.
These companies may add and identify cookies, Web Beacons or other technologies to track some non-personal information about our users. For example, in the display of certain ads, an advertiser may add or identify a unique “cookie” on your browser to collect some information about your use of the Services. In another example, an advertiser or ad server can also collect your unique device ID in the context of an ad display. In many cases, this information can be used to show you ads on other websites based on your interests.
We do not have access to or use of these third parties for “cookies” or other tracking technologies or their control.
