“Anonymous Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. Anonymous Information does not allow the identification of individual persons. We may create Anonymous Information from (i) automatically gathered information, or (ii) Personal Information by excluding information (such as names) that make the information personally identifiable to you.
INFORMATION INA GATHERS:Registration/Enroll
Automatically Gathered Information
INA automatically collects browser type and browser software version to tailor the presentation of the Site and the Site services to the Visitor’s or User’s platform and to maintain a record of the User’s or Visitor’s activity on the Site. As an automatic process, our Web server software records a log file of IP addresses that access the Site. We also collect IP address information but do not ordinarily link IP addresses to Users’ Personal Information. However, we can and will use IP addresses to identify a User when we, in our sole discretion, determine that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms & Conditions or to protect our service, Sits, customers or others. Further, we may collect additional information from or about you in other ways not specifically described here. For example, we may collect information related to your contact with the INA Customer Service when you respond to a survey.
The Tracking Tools that we may use and how we may use them include:
“Web Beacons” (a.k.a. clear GIFs or pixel tags) are tiny graphic image files imbedded in a web page or email that may be used to collect anonymous information about your use of our Services, the websites of selected advertisers and the emails, special promotions or newsletters that we send you. The information collected by Web Beacons allows us to monitor how many people are using the Services, using the selected advertisers' websites or opening our emails, and for what purpose, and also allows us to enhance our interest-based advertising.
We may use third-party website analytics services in connection with the Services, including, for example, to record mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity and text that you type into the Site. These website analytics services generally do not collect Personal Information unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across websites which do not use their services. We use the information collected from these services to help make the Services easier to use and as otherwise set forth in Section 6 (Use of Information).
Mobile Device Identifiers
Mobile device identifiers are data stored on your mobile device that can be used to track your mobile device and data and activities occurring on and through it, as well as the applications installed on it. Mobile device identifiers enable collection of Personal Information (such as media access control, address and location) and Traffic Data. As with other Tracking Tools, mobile device identifiers help INA learn more about our users’ demographics and internet behaviors.
OPTIONS FOR OPTING OUT
Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) allow you to reject Cookies or to alert you when a Cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Although you are not required to accept INA’s Cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Services.
You may opt out of receiving certain Cookies and certain trackers by visiting: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en
Please note that opting out of interest-based advertising does not mean you will no longer see INA’s advertisements; rather, opting out means that the advertisements that you do see are not interest-based advertisements. Also, opting out does not mean that INA is no longer using Tracking Tools -- INA still may collect information about your use of the Services even after you have opted out of interest-based advertisements.
