RIVIONT collects other information that does not reveal your specific identity (‘Other Information’), such as:
- Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies;
- App usage data;
- Demographic information and other information provided by you; and
- Aggregated information.
Since Other Information does not reveal your specific identity, we may use it for any purpose. If we combine any Other Information with your Personal Data (such as combining your name with your location), we will treat the combined information as your Personal Data.
We and our third-party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:
Using cookies | We use ‘cookies’ — that is, small text files placed on a visitor’s computer hard drive — and other technologies to help us determine information such as the type of content to which a visitor to our website links, and the length of time each visitor spends at any particular area of our website. RIVIONT cookies are only read by RIVIONT servers and are unable to execute any code or virus. We and our service providers use the information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, display information more effectively, and to personalise your experience while using our website, products and/or services, as well as for tracking purposes. We also gather statistical information about the usage of our website, products and/or services, in order to continually improve the design and functionality, understand how our website, products and/or services are used and to assist us with resolving questions regarding our website, products and/or services.
You can configure your browser settings to automatically decline cookies, or be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer to your computer of a particular cookie (or cookies) from a particular site. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) You may also wish to refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html. However, if you do not accept these cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our website, products and/or services. For example, we may not be able to recognise your computer and you may need to log in every time you visit our website, products and/or services. You also may not receive advertising or other offers from us that are relevant to your interests and needs.
Using pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs or other similar technologies | These may be used in connection with some of our web pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track the actions of the users of our website and email recipients, measure the success of our communications and compile statistics about usage of our website and response rates.
Using Adobe Flash technology (including Flash Local Shared Objects (‘Flash LSOs’)) and other similar technologies | We may use Flash LSOs and other technologies to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our website, products and/or services. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash LSOs, how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and how to block Flash LSOs that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time). Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with the Online Systems.
Tracking data | RIVIONT monitors visitor traffic patterns throughout our website by logging ‘Tracking Data’, which is collected automatically from each visitor to our website. Tracking Data may include your ‘IP Address’ which is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), as well as your browser type and operating system, the referring website, which page of our website that you have visited, the order in which they were visited and which hyperlinks were ‘clicked’.
RIVIONT uses Tracking Data in aggregate form to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behaviour of our visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of our website.
Physical location | We may collect the physical location of your device by, for example, using satellite, cellphone tower or Wi-Fi signals. We may use your device’s physical location to provide you with location-based services and content. In some instances, you may be able to allow or deny collection of your device’s location, but if you choose to deny such collection, we may not be able to provide you with the applicable location-based services and content.
From you | Information such as your preferred means of communication is collected when you voluntarily provide this information. Unless combined with your other Personal Data, this information does not personally identify you or any other user of our website, products and/or services.
By aggregating information | Aggregated personal information does not personally identify you or any other user of our website, products and/or services. For example, we may aggregate information to calculate the geographic distribution of participants in our website, products and/or services.
