2. Information We Collect Automatically

Whenever you interact with Sparcwire, we automatically receive and record information from your browser, which may include: the device you use to access or use Sparcwire, your IP address, the type of browser or application you are using to access Sparcwire, and the identity of the website page or feature you are requesting.

We may use “cookies” or other tracking technologies to track how you use Sparcwire.

We may also use “web beacons” (i.e. “web bugs” or “single–pixel” or “clear” GIFs) on Sparcwire. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their website.

You may adjust your web browser settings if you do not wish to receive cookies or web beacons but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of Sparcwire’s features. You may also request to opt-out of an advertiser’s use of cookies by visiting the National Advertising Initiative or the Digital Advertising Alliance. You may request to opt-out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting www.google.com/ads/preferences.
