We and our third party service providers may collect Information in other ways, including:
Geo-Location Services: We may utilize location services on your mobile device to collect and use location data, including the real-time geographic location of your device. We may obtain the physical location of your device by using satellite, cell phone tower, WiFi, or other technologies or signals. The physical location is used to provide you with a variety of services such as personalized content such as advertising. We will collect precise real-time geolocation data only if you consent. You may opt out of using location services using your device's functionality to do so, but this may degrade the features and functionality that we can provide. Separate from precise geo-location options, our App [constantly or when the App is being utilized] approximates your device location solely for fraud detection purposes.
Through your Device & Browser: We may collect information from and about your browsers and devices such as but not limited to your MAC Address, device type, operating system and browser name & version, device manufacturer & model number, version of our Application & Sites that are running, IP address, setting, time zone, mobile device identification number, and device language. This information is used for support, statistical purposes, fraud prevention, and to monitor Service performance & functionality.
Through Advertiser ID: Merryfield (and any third party with whom we have contracted), may gather and use your Advertising Identifier, which is a unique ID assigned to your mobile device for advertising purposes, and any information obtained through the use of the Advertising Identifier. If a user resets the Advertising Identifier, Merryfield agrees to not combine, correlate, link, or otherwise associate, the prior Advertising Identifier with the reset Advertising Identifier.
Information from Other Sources: We may collect data that is publicly available such as information you have submitted in public forums, including social media platforms. We may also collect information from third parties such as demographic information and other information that can enhance our existing information about you. We use this information to provide you services and to improve the products and services we deliver to you, including to prevent fraud and/or to verify your identity.
De-identified and Aggregated Information: Personal Information may be de-identified and aggregated in a way to remove the identifying components and provide meaningful insights. De-identified and aggregated information will not be treated as Personal Information and may be used by us and shared with third parties to provide insights into developing or improving products or services, marketing, or for any other legally permissible purposes.
