WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES PLACESTER COLLECT?
The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our Service and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to share content and interact with others. In connection with the Service, we collect the following types of information from our customers.
PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US:
We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or knowingly provide to us in any other way.

PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY:
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Service. Placester automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, browser information and the page you requested or parts of the Service you accessed.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Placester uses this information internally to understand usage trends and improve the Service, but only discloses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. We may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site.
Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. Our Service does not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Placester if your computer supports this type of program. Placester uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our service.
