A. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
Most of the Services offered to users through the Websites and/or Applications, Products do not require you to provide personal information or register for a user account with Almalence. Almalence may ask you in certain circumstances to voluntarily supply Almalence with certain information about yourself, such as your first and last name, and/or e-mail address, which may be used to identify you in connection with some activities on the Websites or during the provision of the Services, for example, in connection with providing technical support.
The information you do provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with Almalence, other users through the Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites, and share information and content, if applicable. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities, and therefore to provide us with your personal information.
You are never obligated to provide personal information to us. Keep in mind that if you should choose to withhold certain requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of our Services.

Cookies and Web Beacons
Our Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites use "cookie" and "web beacon" technology. "Cookies" are short pieces of data generated by a web server or mobile Applications, Products that a Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites stores on a user's device. Our Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites may require the use of a cookie for purposes of keeping information you enter on multiple pages together. Cookies also enable us to customize our Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites and offerings to your needs and provide you with a better online experience with us. In addition, cookies are used to:
- measure usage of various pages on our Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites to help us make our information more pertinent to your needs and easy for you to access; and
- provide functionality such as online orders, our Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites and other functionality that we believe would be of interest and value to you.
The types of cookies that we use are referred to as "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies. Session cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted once you stop using the Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites. Persistent cookies remain on your hard drive of your device until you delete them. Cookies do not, under ordinary circumstances, corrupt or damage your device, programs, or files.
In addition, the Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites providers we use to serve and host our advertisements, and/or deliver our e-mails use session and persistent cookies, to track the number of times the Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites is accessed and whether the Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites was accessed from an advertisement.
Beacons are used in combination with cookies to help Websites and mobile Applications, Products' operators understand how visitors interact with their online Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites. A beacon is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel). In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's hard drive, beacons are embedded invisibly on online pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. These beacons are not tied to personally identifiable information. The use of beacons allows the Applications, Products to measure the actions of the visitor using the Applications, Products that contains the beacon. It makes it easier to follow and record the activities of a recognized browser, such as the path of visited pages and/or Applications, Products. We use the information provided by beacons to develop a better understanding of how our users use the Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites, and to facilitate those users' interactions with the Service, Applications, Products and/or Websites. We may make the aggregate data obtained from analytics (including from our third party analytics providers, if applicable) publicly available. If this data is made available, none of the information will be personally identifying information or potentially-personally identifying information.
Please note that in order to provide our Service, Almalence or some of its third party service providers may collect information about your location and shares it with other users. Our use of location-specific information enables you to use our Services in the most effective way. When you use our location-specific Services, if any we may collect and process information about your actual location, via GPS signals sent by your mobile device to our servers. We may also use other technologies to determine location, based on nearby Wi-Fi access points, satellites, or cell towers. Additional information regarding your location and that of other users will be collected and saved by Almalence, and may include your mobile device identification number, web requests, IP and web addresses, domain names, search terms, pages viewed, page features, number of clicks, as well as the dates, times, and results of searches.
