1. Personal Information We Collect Through the Platform
Playfair is a technology and data company that, through the Platform or offline interactions, provides you with educational videos and training materials on how to use and harness certain technology as applied to data. The types of Personal Information that we may collect for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice are described in this section and include Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us, Personal Information that we collect automatically when you use Services, and Personal Information that we collect from other sources. This section describes the types of information we collect through our Services and how we use it.
A. Personal Information You Provide
We collect Personal Information that you provide to us through the Platform and use such Personal Information for purposes relating to the reasons you provided it to us and to help us improve our Services. For example, we collect information such as:
Personally identifiable contact information such as your name, email, phone number, or other information you submit when communicating with us, such as the “contact us” sections of our Services.
Purchase information, such as items you purchase, shipping address, billing address and contact information for order details, statuses, or issues.
Account and profile information, such as your username and password to access password protected portions of our Platform; and
Communications you send to us.
B. Personal Information We Receive from Third Parties
Your name, billing address, credit card type, last four digits of credit card, and expiration date of credit card.
C. Information We Collect Automatically
Whenever you interact with the Platform, we automatically receive and record information from your browser or device. Information collected automatically may include your IP address, device ID, the type of browser you are using to access the Platform, and the identity of the Platform page or feature you are requesting. We may use such information to analyze trends, administer the Platform, and gather broad demographic data for aggregate use.
We may use “cookies” or other tracking technologies (e.g., web beacons, single-pixel, or clear GIFs) to track how you use the Platform for analytics and security purposes. A cookie is a file stored on your computer or device to uniquely identify your device or to store information or settings on your device. You may adjust your web browser software if you do not wish to receive cookies or web beacons, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of the Platform’s features. Please refer to your browser instructions or help pages to learn more about these functions. To assist us with analyzing our website traffic through cookies and similar technologies, we use analytics services such as Google Analytics. For more information on Google Analytics’ processing of your information, please see “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ Platforms or apps.”
Some internet browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Given that there is not a uniform way that browsers communicate the “Do Not Track” signal, our Platform does not currently interpret, respond to or alter their practices when it receives “Do Not Track” signals.
