2. Information Collection Practices
When you visit a web site without registering, you can browse without submitting personal information about yourself. If you register for an account within a Service or to access a Service, we will collect some personally identifiable information from you, including your full name, username, email address, and a password that you select. When you interact with the Services, we also receive and store certain additional types of information which, in general, do not directly identify you. This Section of the Policy outlines the various ways that information is collected from the Services. Please fully review this Policy before you use the Services or submit information to us.
b) Information Automatically Collected
The Services may automatically collect certain information from users through the use of “cookies,” locally shared objects, or other technologies (see Section5 below). In general, information automatically collected does not directly identify you and the information may include, but is not limited to: browser type; other browser history; platform type; device’s MAC address or MSISDN or other unique device identifier; information about your device operating system; number of clicks; landing pages; cookie information; the amount of time spent on particular pages; the time and date when you downloaded the our software applications or access or use the Services; the frequency with which your device attempts to contact our servers, time, and date of those attempts. We collect this information for the purposes described in this Policy, including to better understand our customer base and to improve the quality of our Services. We may use this information for any lawful purpose, including, for example, to improve the performance of the Services or to develop updates.
c) Information That You Manually Provide.
Account Holders. It is your choice whether to provide personal information to Intellicheck by which you may be personally identifiable, such as your first name, last name, email address, postal mailing address, company or organization affiliation, phone number and other contact information. The personal information we collect on or through Services includes but is not limited to information that you provide when creating your user’s account (“Account”) and may include information provided by the company or organization to which you are affiliated. It is your responsibility not to provide personal information about yourself that could be misused by others.

Cookies, pixel tags, clear gifs, log file, web bugs, and locally shared objects are technologies that install a small amount of information on your device or its software to permit an application to recognize future visits using your device. We may place cookies, pixel tags, clear gifs, log file, web bugs, locally shared objects, or similar technology in the Services or on your hardware or device (including on its browser).
