Like many other online services, we collect and store information about your use of our services, such as when and how you use the Bluescape Service, the frequency and size of your data transfers, information you display or access through the Bluescape Service (including UI elements, settings, and other information), the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, the date and time you access the Bluescape Service and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to the Bluescape Service. We use this information to track and analyze the traffic through the Bluescape Service in order to better understand our users and to customize the Bluescape Service for users’ particular preferences. If you are logged in, we may associate this information with your account. In the same manner, we may also engage third parties to monitor use of the Bluescape Service. These third parties may use the same technologies to collect information used to better understand our users and customize our site for users’ particular preferences.
The technologies we may use include cookies, shared objects and pixel tags (also known as web beacons or web bugs). Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that the Bluescape Service places onto your computer’s hard drive. Cookies identify your computer so that we can recognize you the next time you visit us. Cookies help us remember your preferences and collect technical information about your use of the Bluescape Service. No Personal Information is collected or used by our cookies. Pixel tags are tiny graphic images that are unobtrusively placed on a website or in an e-mail. When the HTML code for a pixel tag points to a website to retrieve the image, it simultaneously passes information to our servers, such as the IP address of the computer that retrieved the image, the time and duration a pixel tag was viewed, the type of browser that retrieved the image, and previously set cookie values. We use pixel tags to help us analyze your use of the Bluescape Service, including the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions taken in connection with the Bluescape Service. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring web site addresses.
You can configure your browser to alert you when a website is attempting to send a cookie to your computer and allow you to accept or refuse the cookie and you may also disable cookies. You do this through your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer) settings. Check your browser’s Help menu to find out how. Disabling cookies also disables pixel tags. You should be aware, however, that by disabling cookies, shared objects and/or pixel tags you may be unable to access certain services and features of the Bluescape Service.
