We may combine personal information that we collect about you with personal information you provide to us through other sources, such as our third-party payment applications. We will use the combined personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice for as long as it is combined.
Other Information We Collect
“Other Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity or relate to you as an identifiable individual. Other Information is anonymous data.
Other Information includes:
- Browser information;
- Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies;
- Aggregated information;
- Usage preferences; and
- Physical location.
How We Collect Other Information
Beanstalk and Beanstalk’s third-party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:
- Through your browser or mobile device;
Certain information is collected by most browsers and devices, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type, screen resolution, operating system version, device manufacturer and model and Internet browser type and version.
- Through your use of a mobile application.
When you download and use a mobile application, we and our service providers may track and collect mobile application usage data, such as your location, or the date and time the mobile application on your device accesses our servers and what information and files have been downloaded to the mobile application based on your device number.
- Through your use of a mobile application, connected device or vehicle, including unmanned aerial vehicles.
The physical location of your device and its associated date and time is collected by satellite, cell phone tower, Wi-Fi signals or other technologies. We may use your device’s physical location to provide you with personalized location-based services and content. In some instances, you may be permitted to allow or deny such uses and/or sharing of your device’s location, but if you do, we and/or our partners may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalized services and content.
- From you.
Information such as your location as well as other information, such as your preferred means of communication, is collected when you voluntarily provide this information. Unless combined with Personal Information, this information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site or mobile application.
- By aggregating information.
Aggregated Personal Information does not personally identify you or any other user of the website. For example, we may use Personal Information to calculate the percentage of Beanstalk clients or interactors who have a particular telephone area code or who use an Android device or an iOS device.
How We Use and Disclose Other Information
Because Other Information does not personally identify you, we may use and disclose Other Information for purposes of improving your experience and for any other legal purpose.
