1. Collection of Information.
1.1. User Direct Information:
Each time you provide information to register your information, take advantage of a promotional offer, send us an email, or otherwise transmit information via the site, NEXTC may obtain and collect personally identifiable information provided by you, including, but not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number. You may also provide us with information that, when combined with personally identifiable information, provides us with a better idea of who you are, including but not limited to your gender, birthday, marital status, and education level (collectively referred to as "personal information"). If you choose to access our website, use our services or purchase our products, we may require you to provide personal information as indicated on the forms throughout the site. You are not obligated to provide us with any information which you do not wish to share.
1.2. Registration Information:
NEXTC collects information from you when you voluntarily complete a NEXTC registration page, order form, or survey either online by using the internet, offline by providing this information through the mail, in person or using a telephone. This information may be collected by registration pages, order forms, or surveys operated by third parties. This method of collection is collectively known as a "Registration." NEXTC may also collect such information concerning you from another source and uses that information in combination with information provided from this website. Completing the Registration is completely voluntary, and you are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to NEXTC or a third party, but you may receive incentives from NEXTC or a third party in exchange for providing such information.
1.3. Other Methods of Collecting Personal Information:
Other occasions when NEXTC obtains information from you include (1) your claiming a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by NEXTC or by a third party, (2) your requests for assistance through NEXTC's customer service department, and (3) when you voluntarily subscribe to a NEXTC service or newsletter.
1.4. Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology:
NEXTC currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you with information about you in its database. Additionally, NEXTC may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future.
(b) Web Beacons:
A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer your unique user identification to a database and associate you with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows NEXTC to track certain websites you visit. Web beacons are used to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes to determine products or services you may be interested in. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, NEXTC also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in NEXTC's database.
(c) IP Addresses:
NEXTC automatically tracks certain information based upon your behavior on the site. We may use this information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on the site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address. Your Internet Protocol ("IP") is a unique Internet "address" which is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider ("ISP"). For local area network ("LAN"), DSL, or cable modem users, an IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. IP addresses are automatically logged by Web servers, collecting information about a user's traffic patterns. While the IP address does not identify an individual by name, it may, with the cooperation of the ISP, be used to locate and identify an individual using the Web. Your IP address can, however, reveal what geographic area you are connecting from, or which ISP you are using. Finally, other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages.
(d) Computer Profiles:
(e) New Technology:
The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly developing. As a result, NEXTC strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of new technology.
1.5. No Information Collected from Children:
NEXTC requires its registrants be 18 years of age or over. NEXTC will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 18. If NEXTC obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 18, that information will be immediately deleted from its database. Because it does not collect such information, NEXTC has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. NEXTC has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA").
1.6 We collect certain information from your mobile device, including but not limited to the following:
(a) Location Information that allows us to periodically determine your location, including your location relative to and within third party merchant locations.
(b) Device and Usage Information that may include (i) information specific to your mobile device (e.g., make, model, operating system, advertising identifier and similar information); (ii) information about your use of features, functions, or notifications on the device; and (iii) signal strength relating to WiFi or Bluetooth functionality, temperature, battery level, and similar technical data.
We may collect this information even if you are not logged in to the application.
