1, What does this privacy statement cover?
This statement describes ChromeStats's customer privacy practices for our ChromeStats-branded global websites, ChromeStats applications, ChromeStats services, ChromeStats customer sales and marketing activities, and ChromeStats customer services and support functions, among others. This statement does not apply to ChromeStats’s employee data practices.
Please also note that certain ChromeStats websites, or software experiences may have links to third-party websites or services. In most cases, those third-party resources are subject to the privacy practices and policies of those third parties and not ChromeStats.
2, What personal, user and product data does ChromeStats collect and how does ChromeStats use and share the personal data it collects?
ChromeStats may collect certain categories of data about you when you use our websites; use our services; receive our marketing communications; interact with our customer service and support teams; and in other contexts. The data we collect can be broadly categorized as follows:
- Personal Data: This is individually identifiable data that you may choose to provide us. This may include basic information such as your email address and phone number, or more sensitive information such as your full date of birth or your payment information.
- User Data: This is data that we collect from users of our services. User data could include personal data such as your unique ChromeStats user ID or account username and password, but sometimes this user data is anonymous or “pseudonymous”, i.e., certain user data that could be made identifiable if associated with personal data.
- Location Data: This is data we collect that help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize our Service and for other uses consistent with this Privacy Statement.
ChromeStats has various uses for your personal and user data you provide to us. Here are the principal contexts in which we may use, retain and share your personal and user data:
- Websites and Account Management: Most often, you may browse our websites without providing any personal data to us. However, if you choose to establish a user account with ChromeStats, engage in e-commerce, sign up for marketing communications, or interact with our customer service teams or participate in a forum on our website, we will likely need to collect some personal or user data from you. In addition, our web servers automatically collect certain data by default, such as IP addresses and other activity logs. This type of data is used for website security and site improvement purposes. Much of that data is not readily identifiable and is usually kept anonymous. In order to maintain and improve our websites, ChromeStats uses third party hosting, content management and security partners, vendors and suppliers.
- Sales: If you decide to purchase a service from ChromeStats, we will need to collect certain personal data from you, including payment-related information. Typically, we use third party partners, vendors and suppliers, such as payment processing companies during our sales.
- Marketing & Social Media: You may choose to receive ChromeStats marketing communications, participate in an event/contest/promotion with us, or connect with ChromeStats via social media. If you do so, we will collect certain personal data about you, such as your contact information, social media profile information and, in order to determine your eligibility for a contest or promotion, your full or partial dates of birth. ChromeStats may share your personal data with our marketing agencies and partners to carry out our marketing campaigns, contests and promotions. If you wish to unsubscribe from our marketing, please follow the opt-out link in the communications you receive from us; update your contact preferences in your ChromeStats account settings; or click here.
- Product Registration: If you use ChromeStats services, you may choose to establish an ChromeStats user account. An ChromeStats user account profile may include your username, password, settings, preferences, contact information, device ID information, and related data. ChromeStats may share this information with other ChromeStats subsidiaries and affiliates and vendors and suppliers, such as third-party hosting partners. Certain ChromeStats product settings, preference information, applications history and location-based information may be used by ChromeStats product development and improvement and customer service teams if you choose to enable enhanced customer support services.
- Customer Service & Support: If you choose to interact with ChromeStats customer service and support – whether it be via our website, social media, chat, email or phone – ChromeStats customer service teams (some of whom work for outsourced vendors and suppliers of ChromeStats) may have access to your account information, product information, contact information and payment information. You may also be required to answer certain security questions to verify your identity and your call or session with ChromeStats customer support may be recorded for quality and training purposes.
- Job Opportunities: You may choose to apply for employment opportunities at ChromeStats through the ChromeStats website. If you complete an application for a job at ChromeStats, we may collect your contact information, job history info and certain other information that may be required or allowed under applicable laws to screen candidates for employment.
