What Personal Information Does Mellodi Collect?
The information Mellodi gathers from users of the Website (“customers”) enables Mellodi to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account. In connection with the Website and services, Mellodi requests and displays some personal information to other customers and visitors of the Website, which allows customers to identify each other. Mellodi collects the following types of information from our customers:
- Personal Information You Provide To Mellodi: Mellodi receives and stores any information you enter on our Website or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, password, email address, photograph or other likeness, IP address, browser information and any other information you provide to us. You can choose not to provide Mellodi with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other customers, improving the content of the Website, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features.
- Personal Information Collected Automatically: Mellodi receives and stores certain types of information whenever you interact with our Website or services. Mellodi automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested. Generally, Mellodi’s service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Mellodi only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables Mellodi to figure out how often customers use parts of the Website or services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, Mellodi may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, Mellodi does not disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
- E-mail Communications: Mellodi may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Mellodi if your computer supports this type of program. Mellodi uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other communications from us, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What About Cookies?
- Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that Mellodi transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Mellodi cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.
