The Products are not directed at children younger than 13 years of age. You must be 18 years of age or older to use the Products. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13 or knowingly allow such persons to use the Products. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Collection and Use of Information
We collect the information described below regarding you and other users in connection with the Products.
Information Provided by You or Authorized by You: When you sign up for an account or use our Products, you voluntarily provide certain information about yourself. This information can include your name, profile photo, email address, location, taste and lifestyle preferences, and product category preferences; and any other information that you provide. If you purchase products or services, then we will also ask for additional information, such as your credit card number and billing address.
You also may give us permission to access your information via third party services. For example, if you register for or log into the site via Facebook, you will be asked to approve Facebook’s sharing of selected information with Ora, including basic information from your public profile (such as your name, gender, and locale), your email address, your friend list, and your Facebook. If and when we add the ability to log in via third party services, analogous information sharing may occur. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third party websites and services before linking or connecting them to the Site or Products. You may also unlink your third party account from the Site or Products by adjusting your settings on the third party service.
In addition, Ora also collects and stores the content that you contribute to the Site, for example product recommendations, ratings, reviews, comments, questions, replies, “likes,” “helpful” votes, etc.
Information Collected Using Cookies and Other Technology: We may collect the following types of data via technology as you use our Products:
Log Data: When you use our Products, our servers automatically record information (“log data”) including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Ora, and cookie data.
Pixel Tags: We may use “pixel tags” (tiny graphic images with unique identifiers, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users). In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel tags allow us to send email messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce, eliminate, or modify the types of emails that users receive.
Device Information: In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device from which you’re logging into Ora, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you use and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
Use of Information: We use or may use the information collected as described herein, including to: (a) provide, improve and monitor the effectiveness of our Products or other businesses of Ora; (b) develop new products or services; (c) protect Ora and our users; (d) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Site; (e) provide custom, personalized content and information; (f) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; (g) diagnose or fix technology problems; (h) help you efficiently access your information after you sign in; (i) send you updates, notifications, newsletters, marketing materials and other information that may be of interest to you; (j) respond to your questions or comments; and (k) process applicable payments and collect amounts that you owe Ora.
Disclosure of Information
We may share your information with third parties as described in this section.
Content: When you contribute content to our Site - for example product recommendations, ratings, reviews, comments, questions, replies, “likes,” and “helpful” votes - this content will be made publicly available on the Site (where it will be accessible by both registered and unregistered users), and will potentially be made available on partner sites as well. This content may also be featured or used in Ora or its related companies’ marketing materials. In addition, when you populate your public profile on Ora, that information is also accessible to anyone. You always have the option to delete a specific piece of content or terminate your account (resulting in removal of all of your content from display on the Site) at any time.
Social Networking Sites: We may share your information with third party social networking services if you have chosen to link to your Ora account to third party social networking services (e.g. Facebook), as the Products may allow you to choose to publish your activity on Ora to them. By default we will not publish your activity on Ora to such services without your express consent.
Third-Party Service Providers: We may share your information with third-party business partners, consultants and service providers that perform services on our behalf for the purpose of providing the Products to you (e.g., email providers, content or product fulfillment, analytics companies, etc.). Our business partners will be given limited access to your information that is reasonably necessary to deliver the Products. We may also share your information with our business partners who offer a service to you jointly with us, for example, when running a co-sponsored contest or promotion. From time to time, we may share your information with third parties who we think may offer you products or services you may enjoy.
