We do not consider personal information to include: business contact information, business information publically available on the internet or other public sources, information that has been made anonymous or aggregated so that it can no longer be used, whether in combination with other information or otherwise, to identify a specific person, or information that merely identifies a computer or browser, or an ID number assigned to an anonymous person.

WHY WE COLLECT INFORMATION
We and our affiliates (members of the Pepperjam corporate family) may collect and use the information collected at our Sites for any internal purpose and provide that information to our business partners and vendors to be used by them for related purposes. For example, we may use this data to monitor our Sites and collect aggregate data for marketing purposes and for other future uses, or to determine the most appropriate information to send to those who request it.
You may choose voluntarily to give us personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, or other information about yourself. In addition, we may collect non-personal information automatically as you navigate our sites. This information may include (but may not be limited to): location data, IP address, device data such as mobile identifiers, carrier network information, the mobile website or mobile app used, and cookie or pixel tag data.
Certain forms on our sites may also request contact and profile information, such as user name, email address, website, phone number, or company information. Completion of these forms is entirely voluntary but may be required in order to request certain services from Pepperjam. Job applications and resume submissions on our Sites are used to screen candidates and contact them for interviews.
Pepperjam may also use our sites to periodically survey our Clients for purposes of improving the quality of our service and customer satisfaction. Client participation is completely voluntary, and any information we collect from you as part of our surveys will be treated with the same respect as any other information gathered in accordance with this Notice.
HOW WE COLLECT IT
Our Sites use web beacons and other technologies to collect information when you access our websites, and we may store that information in "cookies".
We only obtain personally identifying information if it is supplied voluntarily. If you have chosen to receive marketing messages from us about our products and services, we may use information from our log files, cookies, or web beacons to help us make those communications more useful or interesting to you.

We use these data files, commonly known as "Cookies" to help us identify you as a site visitor or Client, customize our content and enhance your site experience. These third parties may also use a technology called “Tags” or "Web Beacons". Similar in function to Cookies, Web Beacons allow us to understand the movements of visitors to our Sites.

Do Not Track
California law requires us to state how we respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Because there is currently no industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT, we do not currently respond to DNT signals. We await the result of work by the privacy community and industry to determine when such a response is appropriate and what form it should take.
