Information We Collect About You.
As with many other websites and applications, as you navigate through and interact with our Platform, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:

The information we collect automatically includes statistical data and may also include Personal Information. We may also maintain it or associate it with Personal Information you provide to us or that we collect in other ways or receive from third parties.

Through pixel tags, we collect non-Personal Information or aggregate information that can be used to enhance your online experience and understand traffic patterns.
Information We Receive From Other Sources.
This is information we receive about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or other services we provide.

If you are receiving email from IMG or from one of our third-party partners, but do not have an account with us, you can unsubscribe in the bottom of the email. If you are not able to unsubscribe online through one of those methods, please contact us and we can handle your request. You can also always exercise your right to ask us not to process your Personal Information for marketing purposes by contacting us at the address in Section XI: CONTACT INFORMATION. If we have sent you a promotional email, you may unsubscribe by clicking in the unsubscribe link in the bottom of the email.
VI. DATA SECURITY
We have implemented measures designed to reasonably secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Platform, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Platform.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Platform; any transmission is at your own risk.
When you use our Platform there is a risk that your PHI will be stored unencrypted on your mobile device. We take a variety of technical safeguards to make sure that your PHI does not leak onto your mobile device but we cannot guarantee that these safeguards work.
