The Information We Collect
Steve Bailey Consulting collects and uses information from Users of the Website. We collect information that does not permit direct association with any specific User ("Non-Personal Information") as well as information that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a User ("Personal Information").
Users browsing the Website without registering an account or affirmatively providing Personal Information to Steve Bailey Consulting do so anonymously; however, like most websites, we collect some Non-Personal Information automatically when you visit our Website and store it in log files ("Log Data"). Log Data may include information such as Internet Protocol Address (IP address), browser type, operating system, language, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, pages of your Website that you visit, time spent on those pages, [information you search for on our Website], access times and dates, and other statistics.
We use Non-Personal Information to better understand User behavior and improve our Website and services. We also use Non-Personal Information to monitor and analyze use of the Website, services, and for the Website's technical administration, to increase our Website functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Website to our Users' needs. Additionally, we may aggregate, analyze, and evaluate Non-Personal Information for any purpose.
Certain Non-Personal Information collected would be considered part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other information in a way that enables you to be identified. We may combine Non-Personal Information in a manner that would be considered Personal Information and/or we may combine Non-Personal Information with Personal Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of our business and to analyze and understand how our Website is used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product or service to you according to your preferences or restrictions. Sometimes we use Personal Information in conjunction with Non-Personal Information to complete your transactions and administer your inquires.
Cookies and Other Technologies
Like most websites, our Website uses "cookies" or "web beacons" or "ad networks" to track how Users use the Website, recognize you as a registered user, improve the overall experience of the website, or tailor and customize the content of the Website.
In case you aren't aware of what a "cookie" is, a cookie is a piece of software that a web server can store on Users' device (e.g., computer, tablet, or phone) and use to identify Users should they visit the Website again. One type of cookie, known as a "persistent" cookie, is set once you have logged in to your Website account. The next time you visit our Website, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing User so you will not need to log in before using the Website. In order to access or change any of your private information, you must log in with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Additionally, if you log out of the Website you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account. Another type of cookie, called a "session" cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the Website. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser. You can choose to disable cookies on your browser or allow your browser to notify you when a cookie is being sent, however this may prevent you from utilizing certain features of the Website.
Web Beacons and Ad Networks
We may allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements to Users via the Website. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. Steve Bailey Consulting may "target" some ads to Users that fit a certain general profile. To deliver these ads properly, the Website may include a file, called a web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by the Website or implement other monitoring technologies so the networks may provide anonymous, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as to target ads to you while you visit other websites. These general targets may also be used by ad networks to display targeted ads on other websites as a substitute for random, irrelevant ads. In addition, the Website may use the technology of ad networks to serve ads only when you visit this Website. Ad networks may use Non-Personal Information, such as your state or zip code, in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of particular interest to you while you visit this Website. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their website.
