This privacy statement does not apply to Sites operated by other companies or organizations to which we may link or to which we may link. Third-party websites’ actions and privacy policies are not our responsibility.
What Information Is Collected?
In connection with your use of the Sites, we collect two types of information from you: non-personally identifiable information and personally identifiable information. Non-personally identifiable information does not identify you personally, but it may include tracking and usage data about your general location, demographics, and use of the Sites and the Internet. Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is any information that can be used to identify you individually, such as your name, address, phone number, and email address, as well as any non-personally identifiable information that has been linked to such personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
In general, you can browse the Sites without providing us with any personally identifiable information. However, you may provide us with personally identifiable information in a variety of circumstances, including when you subscribe to our publications, newsletters, and other content; register for a Site or any part of it; complete a poll or participate in market research; enter a contest; upload content, or apply for employment at EveryTechEver.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may collect certain information that does not personally identify you (“non-personally identifiable information” or “non-PII”) when you interact with the Sites, such as demographic data; information about your computer, mobile device, or another device that you use to access the Sites, such as IP address, general location information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information.
We may also collect information about your use of the Sites, such as your search terms and results, as well as other “traffic data” such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring website addresses. Our servers may keep an activity log of your use of our Sites automatically. We may collect aggregate data about the use of the Sites in addition to non-identifiable individual information.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information From or Through Social Media Sites
Furthermore, when you interact with any EveryTechEver property page or account on a social media platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or LinkedIn, we may collect the personally identifiable information that you provide to us on that page or account, including your social media account ID. However, we will adhere to the privacy policies of the corresponding social media platform and will only collect and store personally identifiable information that those social media platforms permit us to collect. If you link or login to your EveryTechEver account with or through a social networking service, EveryTechEver, and that service may share information about you and your activities. We may also share information about your activities, including what you view on the Sites, with the users of that social network with your permission.
Collection of Your Source IP Address/Location Information
We collect and store the source IP address of your device, which may reveal your device’s general location at the time you access the Sites. As a result of this information, advertisements and certain content may be targeted to you.
Information from Other Sources
We may supplement the information we collect with data from third parties or data collected offline and add it to your account. Demographic information, additional contact information, group affiliations, occupational information, and educational background are examples of the types of information that may be collected.

We may combine information gathered from multiple portions of the Sites into a single user record, and we may use information from one portion of the Sites on other portions of the Sites in our network of Sites, all of which are owned and operated by EveryTechEver. We may also use or combine information collected offline or from third-party sources for a variety of purposes, including to improve, expand, and verify the accuracy of our records. Furthermore, data collected from one browser or device may be used on another computer or device that is linked to the browser or device that collected the data.

Other Important Information
We protect your information with appropriate security measures, such as physical, technical, and administrative controls. Please keep in mind that, while we make every effort to protect your personally identifiable information after we get it, no data transmission over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be completely secure. You must contribute to the protection of your personal information’s privacy. By using encryption and other techniques to prevent unauthorized persons from intercepting or receiving any personally identifiable information that you may transmit over any home networks, wireless routers, wireless (WiFi) networks, or similar devices, you must take precautions to protect the security of any personally identifiable information that you may transmit. When accessing unencrypted, open access, or otherwise insecure networks, you are responsible for the security of your data.
The length of time we preserve information varies depending on the purpose for which it was collected. In some circumstances, it is required by law to store data for a certain amount of time. We will store information for no longer than is necessary for the reasons for which it was obtained or for which it is to be further processed unless there is a specific legal necessity for us to keep it.
