To make use of some features on our Website visitors may need to register and provide certain information as part of the registration process. We may ask, for example, for your name, service and billing address, e-mail address or telephone number, and we might request additional personal information, including but not limited to, your household’s internet usage, the number of internet devices in your home, your home square footage, and your interests in television viewing, sports, personal finance, or the performing arts.

INFORMATION BREEZELINE AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTS

In connection with the standard operation of the Website, certain other non-personally identifiable information about visitors to this Website is collected. This information may include the location of your network; the other websites you visit and how you interact with them; clickstream, heatmap, and other in-page analytics such as the clicks you make and the pages you visit on this Website; advertising campaign analytics such as the ads you see and/or click on; and other information about the type of web browser, device or cookie identifiers, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using. We use this information for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our server, to display advertisements on our Website and on third-party websites, and to administer our Website and services. We may use this information in a non-personally identifiable form to, among other things, measure the use of our Website, determine which products and services are the most popular with Website visitors, and may disclose this information to third parties.

COOKIES, TRACKING TECHNOLOGY, AND ADVERTISING

Breezeline may use "tags,” “pixels,” or similar technologies in the Website, for example, as a way to gather information about your visit, such as your IP address, device or cookie identifiers, and information or statistics about your visit, including your behavior while visiting the Website. A tag or pixel is a piece of third-party code that is inserted on the Website to track users’ behavior and send it to third-party analytics platform, such as Google Analytics. Breezeline uses the HotjarTM tool utilizing tag technology to obtain behavior analytics and feedback data on the visitors to the Website.

To help make our site more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, randomly generated number that temporarily resides on your computer. The cookie itself doesn't actually identify the individual, just the particular device that a visitor uses to access the Website. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself, Breezeline will not know who you are, even if we generate a cookie for your particular Website session. The Website may store information in a cookie about your computer configuration so that it can more efficiently provide information to you the next time you visit the Website. Breezeline uses cookies on the Website to remember your username, and may remember other information you voluntarily provide to Breezeline, including but not limited to, your e-mail address or account number. This help us tailor our Website to your needs, to deliver a better, more personalized service, and to remember certain choices you have made so you do not have to re-enter them. You can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other visitors to our Website. Except as described above, Breezeline does not store your name or other personal information in cookies.

We work with third-party advertising companies who also use these tracking tools to provide advertisements on our Website or other websites. These third parties may use these technologies to collect information about you when you use the Website. They may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may also use persistent identifiers to track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond the Website. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. While we do not knowingly provide these entities with information that personally identifies you, such third parties may with sufficient data from other sources be able to personally identify you, unknown to us.

Some content, including advertisements, or applications, including the chat widget powered by Genesys™ and the listening post provided by Qualtrics™, on the Website may be served by unaffiliated third parties. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any website not operated by us to which our Website links or that link to our Website.

We use third-party analytics services on our Website. These third parties use cookies or other tracking technologies to help us analyze how users interact with and use the Website, compile reports on the Website’s activity, and provide other services related to the Website activity and usage. The technologies used by these third parties may collect information such as your IP address, time of visit, whether you are a return visitor, and any referring website. The Website does not use these third-party web analytics services to gather information that personally identifies you. The information generated will be transmitted to and stored by the respective third-party analytics service providers and will be subject to their privacy policies. Among others, we use Google Analytics and you can learn more about their services and to opt out of tracking of analytics by Google by clicking here. You can learn more about Hotjar’s product and how to opt out of their tracking of analytics by clicking here.

Many of the third-party advertisers that place tracking tools on our Website are members of programs that offer you additional choices regarding the collection and use of your information. You can learn more about the options available to limit these third parties’ collection and use of your information by visiting the websites for the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance, as well as the webpages for Facebook’s ad preferences tool and privacy policy. Similarly, you can learn about your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through your device settings. For more information about how to change these settings for Apple, Android or Windows devices, see: Apple: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202074; Android: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads; and Windows: https://choice.microsoft.com. Please note making opt-out selections by using the websites offered by these self-regulatory programs does not prevent you from being served with advertising. You will continue to receive ads from third parties, but the ads will not be targeted to you based on cookies or other technologies being set on your computer. As a result, ads that you see may not be as relevant to you.
