Types of Information Collected Automatically

When you view or interact with our online services and ads, we may automatically receive certain information. This information includes:

  • Log information.  Log information refers to information that is automatically sent by your web browser or device (or otherwise automatically collected by us) each time you view or interact with our online services and ads.  Log information may include the online service(s) requested (e.g., the inxinternational.com website); date and time of your request; referring URL (i.e., the website you came from); your device's Internet Protocol (IP) address; location data derived from your device's IP address; browser type; browser language; device operating system; device hardware and other characteristics; device event information (e.g., crash data); information regarding your use of our online services (e.g., pages viewed, features used, number of clicks, time spent on a particular page); data contained in first-party cookies; and related device and usage data.  Log information is automatically recorded by our servers each time you view or interact with our online services and ads.
  • Device information.  Device information refers to device-specific information that we automatically collect when you view or interact with our online services and ads.  Device information may include your device type and model; device operating system and version; unique device and advertising identifiers; mobile network information; and related device information.  To learn more about the information your device may make available to us, please check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
  • Cookie data.  Cookie data refers to the small text file(s) that are sent to or read by our servers when you view or interact with our online services and ads.  Cookie data may include user preferences and other information.
  • Local storage data.  Local storage data refers to data stored locally on your browser or device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (e.g., HTML 5, Flash) and application data caches (i.e., a data repository on a device used for storing data locally in connection with a particular application).  As with cookie data, local storage data may be sent back to or read by our servers when you view or interact with our online services and ads.
  • Statistical identifiers.  Statistical identifiers refer to identifiers created using your device information and certain log information.  This information, collectively, makes your web browser or device sufficiently distinct for our servers or similar systems to reasonably determine that they are encountering the same browser or device over time.  Statistical identifiers enable us to uniquely identify your web browser or device for the same purposes as cookies.

In this Statement on Cookies and Similar Technologies, the information described above is collectively referred to as "device and usage data."

Overview of Cookies and Similar Technologies

We use various technologies to collect device and usage data, including cookies and similar technologies.

  • Cookies.  Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored by your browser or device when you view or interact with our online services and ads.  These cookies are then sent back unchanged to us each time you view or interact with our online services and ads in order for us to recognize your web browser or device.  Cookies are used by us for a number of legitimate purposes, such as authenticating users; session tracking and storing information about specific users (e.g., website preferences, buying habits); analyzing traffic to our online services; tracking the number and frequency of ads that have been shown to specific browsers or devices; and related purposes.

There are different types of cookies.  Cookies served by the entity that operates the website you are using or viewing are called first party cookies (e.g., cookies served by INX when you view or interact with our online services are first party cookies).  Cookies served by entities that are not operating the website you are viewing or interacting with are called third party cookies (e.g., cookies served by our digital marketing partners when you view or interact with our online services, such as Google Analytics cookies, are third party cookies).  Cookies may also endure for different periods of time.  Session cookies only last as long as your web browser is open, and are deleted automatically once you close your browser.  Other cookies are persistent cookies, meaning they survive after your browser is closed (e.g., to recognize your browser or device when you revisit our online services).

  • Pixel tags.  Pixel tags (also called web beacons, clear GIFs and action tags) are small blocks of code installed on our online services and ads for a number of legitimate purposes, such as to allow us to track activity on our online services (e.g., when e-mails are opened or content is viewed); allow our digital marketing partners to serve cookies on our online services and receive relevant device and usage data; and other purposes relating to the monitoring and analysis of the use and performance of our online services and ads.
  • Local storage.  Local storage refers generally to the storage of data locally on your browser or device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (e.g., HTML 5, Flash) and application data caches.
  • Software Development Kits.  Software development kits (also called SDKs) function like third-party cookies and pixel tags, but operate in the mobile app context where cookies and pixel tags cannot function as effectively.  Instead, we may install pieces of code (the SDK) provided by our digital marketing partners (e.g., third-party advertising companies, ad networks and analytics providers) in our mobile apps in order for our digital marketing partners to collect and analyze relevant device and usage data.
  • Server logs.  Server logs refer to the servers used by us to receive and store device and usage data.

In this Statement on Cookies and Similar Technologies, the cookies and other technologies described above are collectively referred to as "cookies and similar technologies."  For more information about cookies and similar technologies generally, please visit here.
