5. Cookies, Local Storage, and Other Tracking Technologies
- Adjusting Cookie Settings On Your Browser. By default, most browsers will automatically accept cookies. However, you can disable cookies completely, or be prompted prior to a cookie being loaded, by adjusting your browser’s settings. Consult each individual browser’s “help” feature for more information.
- Web Beacons. Web beacons are small graphic images or other programming code (also known as “web bugs,” “1x1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) used to keep track of your navigation through the Service and your electronic communication with us. We may include web beacons in our web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or email can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Service, to monitor how users navigate the Service, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed. Web beacons may be used to collect certain personal information (for example, the email address associated with an email message).
- Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is a programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Service, such as information about the links on which you click. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third-party service provider. The code is active only while you are connected to the Service, and is deactivated or deleted once you disconnect from the Service.
Carlson implements a variety of security measures to protect the safety of your personal information when you enter or submit your personal information.
While we take reasonable measures to protect the information you submit via the Service against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. No Internet, email, or mobile application transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Email or other messages sent through the Service may not be secure. You should use caution whenever submitting information through the Service and take special care in deciding which information you provide us.
We cannot guarantee that transmissions of your personal information will be fully secure and that third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or the security measures of our partners. WE ASSUME NO LIABILITY FOR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION DUE TO TRANSMISSION ERRORS, THIRD-PARTY ACCESS OR CAUSES BEYOND OUR CONTROL.
7. Data Retention
We will retain your information for as long as you use the Service and for a reasonable time thereafter. Please note that some or all of the information we have collected may be required in order for the Service to function properly.
8. Your Choices Regarding Information
You have choices regarding the use of information by the Service.
A. Changing Your Information.
Currently, we collect only a limited amount of data and do not retain any information on the users of the Service. Because Carlson does not retain data, Carlson does not offer a mechanism for users to change their information. However, we reserve the right to collect and retain personal information in the future if necessary to comply with federal and state laws. If we do that, we will make appropriate updates to our applicable policies.
9. How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
Carlson does not collect personally identifiable information (“PII”) through its Service, including through its use of session management cookies. A session cookie is a temporary file which is only active while you are on the Service and is erased once you close your browser; Carlson does not use the cookies to collect information about you from other websites. Nonetheless, your browser may offer a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and mobile applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and/or across different websites and mobile applications and services. The Service does not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity only while you are using the Service and do not retain it.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from an individual under age 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information through the Service. If you have reason to believe that we may have accidentally received personal information from an individual under age 13, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
