We employ commercially reasonable measures to protect your privacy while visiting our Site, endeavoring to provide a useful and productive experience. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect between you and the Site(s). 

We collect several types of information from and about users of our Site. While you can use many features of the Site(s) anonymously, you may be required to provide Personal Information to gain access to some of our content or services. Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number. For example, we may ask you to provide us with Personal Information that can be used to contact or identify you, including information that you provide by filling in forms on our Site. This includes information provided to use or receive information about services and offerings from Social Lock, LLC. For example, when you fill out the “Social Lock, LLC” form or “Social Lock, LLC” form,” you consent to release any Personal Information provided and/or data to us. Likewise, by submitting your Personal Information through the Site, you consent to receive e- mail or other applicable information from us.

We may also collect automatic, anonymous information such as browser type and version, browser language, your operating system and platform, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet.

Cookies

The technology we use to obtain this information includes the use of cookies. Cookies are small files placed on the hard drive of your computer to identify you when you visit a website. You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of this Site may be inaccessible or not function properly.

We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction, in order to better understand our customers and their needs. 

We may also collect anonymous information through the use of tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a webpage and, in combination with a cookie, allows for the collection of information regarding the use of the webpage that contains the tracking pixel. We use tracking pixels to tell when you have clicked on certain website features or otherwise interacted with those features, and use that information to learn about visitor use. In some cases, we use third-party service providers to help us collect and analyze this anonymous information.
