The Information We Collect
Personal Information You Provide And How It Is Used
You may freely visit our Website anonymously and without being required to provide us with any personal information. However, certain requests do require that you provide us with some personally identifying information as more particularly described below. Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact you. Please do not send confidential information to us directly through this Website, or by email to any of the contact links on this Website.
The Website provides a variety of forms that can be used to contact us, request additional information or content, register for an event or signup for our blogs. These forms will collect your name and email address, and any other personal information that you provide to us.
If you opt to signup for our email newsletter, you will be asked to provide us with your name and email address, which we will use to periodically send you the newsletter.
The Website may post job opportunities with Hero Digital. If you opt to be considered for any such opportunity, you will be asked to submit an online application. The application will require that you provide us with certain personally identifying information – such as your name and email address; you will also be asked to provide us your resume and cover letter, and you may opt to share your LinkedIn profile link, all of which will likely contain a variety of additional personally identifiable information.
Non-Personal Information We Collect by Automated Means And How We Use It
We may collect certain non-personal information (data in a form that does not support direct association with any specific person or individual) by automated means when you visit the Website. Much of this information, when collected, will be through the use of third-party tracking services, which includes Google Analytics. The information collected may include usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users to the Website, pages visited, web browsing histories, your location and device, social networking activities and similar data. When gathered, this data is used in the aggregate, and not in a manner that is intended to identify you personally. This type of aggregate information may be shared with third parties at any time, including with third party marketers with whom we may work. In addition to Google Analytics, we may also collect information through various other means, including “cookies,” “web beacons” and IP addresses, as further explained below. We also may use “ad pixels” and/or “trackers” (tracking pixels) that follows and tracks your activities from an ad placement to specific website use/activities.
Cookies may also be used for “retargeting.” Retargeting is a cookie-based technology that uses specific code to anonymously “follow” or track previous visitors to our Website after they leave, and allows us to target advertisements to those previous visitors as they visit other websites. As such, when you visit our Website we may “activate” an anonymous browser cookie.
Our Websites may contain “web beacons” (also know as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party.
When you visit and interact with the Website, third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol addresses (each an “IP Address”), as well as browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. An IP Address is a unique identifier number that certain electronic devices use to identify and to communicate with each other on the Internet; your Internet Service Provider automatically assigns an IP Address to the computer that you are using. We gather this information to track Website visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Our goal in gathering this information is to learn how visitors are using our Website. We may use this information to enhance our Website or for other lawful purposes.
