8. Tracking Technologies. Manny Khoshbin may employ the following tracking technologies on its Applications:

  • Cookies: “cookies” give users a special ID, which are small text files that are stored in the memory of a user’s Devices used to access the Applications. Manny Khoshbin employs cookies to recognize you and your access privileges for certain locations on the Devices as well as to track site usage. Subscribers who do not accept cookies from the Devices cannot access many areas of the Devices. We use both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session ID cookies are used to store information while a user is logged into the Devices and expires when the user closes his/her browser. Persistent cookies are used to make tasks like logging into the Devices easier for returning users by remembering a user’s login information. Persistent cookies stay on a user’s hard drive from one session to the next.
  • Web Beacons: Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and 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 Devices, to monitor how users navigate the Devices, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
  • Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Devices, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Devices, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
  • HTML5: We may use HTML5 in the Devices, including without limitation in Manny Khoshbin mobile websites and certain mobile applications for the iPhone or iPad (and any other Apple iOS device). HTML5 has browser web storage that does not rely on traditional browser cookies. Like Flash cookies, HTML5 cookies are not stored in a browser “cookies” file and, like Flash cookies, can be used to track users across websites. We are currently unaware of a way for a user to disable local storage while simultaneously leaving cookies enabled.
  • E-tags/cache browsers/web logs: Like most standard website servers, we log IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet) and Device identification in order to improve security, analyze trends and administer the Devices. We may track your movement within the Devices, the pages from which you were referred, access times and browser types. This information may include the browser you are using, the Internet address from which you linked to our Devices, the operating system of your computer, the unique IP address of the computer or Device identification from the Device that you used to access our Devices and usage and browsing habits. We use this information in the aggregate to gauge the effectiveness, usage, and popularity of our Devices, track information for statistical purposes, help diagnose and troubleshoot server malfunctions, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather information. We may also use individual information we collect through web logs to send you targeted offers and other communications.
 

PART II – MANNY KHOSHBIN PRIVACY POLICY FOR INFORMATION
COLLECTED OTHER THAN THROUGH THE SITES

The same rules set forth in Part I above for the Sites will be applied to such Personal Information you submit through channels other than the Sites (including without limitation your opt-out rights in Part I, Section 5 above), except as follows:

  • The “cookies” and other tracking devices used by the Sites and described in Part I above do not apply to Personal Information gathered through channels other than the Sites.
  • Hardcopy Personal Information provided to Manny Khoshbin which is not converted to electronic media or hosted by Manny Khoshbin will be subject to different security procedures than electronically stored Personal Information. Manny Khoshbin has security measures equal to or better than those reasonably expected in the industry, in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your hardcopy Personal Information under Manny Khoshbin’s control.
  • When Manny Khoshbin collects Personal Information through channels other than the Sites it may in some instances apply a different privacy policy to such information; but where it does so it shall conspicuously disclose to you at the time of collection what policy will apply to such information. For example, Manny Khoshbin may collect information through a survey where Manny Khoshbin’s use of any Personal Information from that survey is more limited than the general policy would otherwise allow; in such a case Manny Khoshbin will disclose the stricter policy governing that survey information at the time such Personal Information is collected from the survey respondent.
