COLLECTION OF INFORMATION:
Registration Information is the information you submit to register for a AAK Web and Mobile Applications use, for example, to create an account, review content and post comments. Registration Information includes all information as entered on the registration form and includes name, email address, gender, zip code and birthday.
Public Information and Posts consist of comments or content that you post to AAK Web and Mobile Applications and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture. Public Information and Posts are always public, which means they are available to everyone and may be displayed in search results on external search engines.
When you access and interact with the AAK Web and Mobile Applications, we may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the AAK Web and Mobile Applications, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the AAK Web and Mobile Applications from a mobile phone or other devices, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device, geolocation data, or other transactional information for that device.
Technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier. Websites, apps and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the AAK Web and Mobile Applications services, such as pages you have visited, content you have viewed, search queries you have run and any advertisements you have seen. Third parties that support the AAK Web and Mobile Applications by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing you to share content or tracking aggregate AAK Web and Mobile Applications usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information. AAK Web and Mobile Applications does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the ‘Help’ section of your browser for more information.
We may supplement the information we collect with information from other sources, such as publicly available information from social media services, commercially available sources and information from our AAK Web and Mobile Applications or business partners.
