How We Collect Your Information
To collect your information, we use a small data file called a cookie. A cookie is used to store small amounts of information. Cookies are sent from a website’s server and are stored on your device’s hard drive either for only the duration of your visit (“session cookies”) or for a fixed period (“persistent cookies”). This information is collected for traffic analysis only.
Cookies do not contain personal details. We may also use a variety of other technologies to collect information about your device and use of our websites and mobile applications. These technologies include web beacons, java scripts, entity tags, and HTML local storage. Web beacons are small, transparent images that are embedded in web pages, applications, and emails that are sometimes called “clear gifs,” “single pixel gifs”, “page tags” or “web bugs.”
We may use web beacons to track the web pages you visit, to test the effectiveness of our marketing, and to find out if an email has been opened and acted on. Java scripts are code snippets embedded in various parts of websites and applications that facilitate a variety of operations including accelerating the refresh speed of certain functionality or monitoring usage of various online components.
Entity Tags are HTTP code mechanisms that allow portions of websites to be stored or “cached” within your browser and validates these caches when the website is opened, accelerating website performance since the web server does not need to send a full response if the content has not changed. HTML5 local storage allows data from websites to be stored or “cached” within your browser to store and retrieve data in HTML5 pages when the website is revisited.
Depending on the browser that you use, you can set your preferences to block/refuse some or all of these technologies, and/or notify you before they are placed. To learn the correct way to modify your browser settings, please use the Help menu in your browser. Please note, Beyu does not sell, provide, or trade the statistics we store to any third parties for data-mining or marketing purposes.
“Do Not Track” Technology
Some newer web browsers have a “Do Not Track” preference that transmits a “Do Not Track” header to the websites you visit with information indicating that you do not want your activity to be tracked. We currently do not respond to browser “Do Not Track” signals.
