Information We Collect
As you use our websites and applications or are exposed to an ad or promotional message provided by Bulzī, we collect information about you and the services you use. The information we collect falls into three different categories: (1) information you give us; (2) information we collect from you automatically; and (3) information we collect from other sources.
Information You Give Us
Some information we collect is provided when you give us your first and last name, email address, postal address, phone number, job title, company or any other information you provide when contacting us through a website or application.
Information We Collect Automatically
We collect some information automatically, including when you access our websites, download and use our applications, or view an ad or promotion provided by Bulzī. This information includes:
- Location Information –We may collect information about the location of your device, including GPS location, for purposes of responding to you, enhancing or facilitating our services, or enabling the functionality of our websites, applications and ad delivery platform. We may also use information about the location of the device you are using to deliver more relevant advertising. Unless you have opted in to Bulzī collecting your precise location data (see next section), location information we collect from you is anonymized, pseudonymized, aggregated and/or otherwise processed to ensures it is not “precise” location data under the NAI Code or Personal Information under GDPR. If you want to opt out of the collection of this location information, please see the section below titled "Your Choices".
Information We Collect from Other Sources
Some information we collect is publicly available. We may also collect information about you from other companies and organizations. We use this data to correct inaccurate information in our records, improve your experience with our websites, applications and services, tailor ads to your interests, and give you product recommendations and special offers that are more likely to interest you.
How We Collect Your Information Automatically
Bulzī and others may use a variety of technologies to collect information about your device and use of websites and applications. These technologies include cookies, web beacons, java scripts, entity tags, wired and wireless communication networks, and HTML local storage. Most web browsers and devices can be set to accept or reject the use of some or all of these technologies, although you must take additional steps to disable or control other technologies. For more information, please see "Your Choices".
- Cookies – Cookies are small data files that are sent from a website’s server and are stored on your device’s hard drive either for only the duration of your visit ("session cookies") or for a fixed period ("persistent cookies"). Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server.
- Web Beacons – Web beacons are small, transparent images that are embedded in web pages, applications, and emails that are sometimes called “clear gifs," “single pixel gifs", or "page tags". Web beacons are used to track the web pages you visit, to test the effectiveness of our marketing, and to find out if an email has been opened and acted on.
- Java Scripts – Java scripts are code snippets embedded in various parts of websites and applications that facilitate a variety of operations including accelerating the refresh speed of certain functionality or monitoring usage of various online components.
- Entity Tags – Entity Tags are HTTP code mechanisms that allow portions of websites to be stored or “cached" within your browser and validates these caches when the website is opened, accelerating website performance since the web server does not need to send a full response if the content has not changed.
- Wired and Wireless Communication Networks – Communication networks routinely pass the browser and device identifiers they use to identify an end user to third parties they interact with, such as passing user information along with an ad request to a digital advertising exchange. Communication network identifiers commonly exchanged between networks and their partners include IP address, Wi-Fi MAC address, Bluetooth Device ID and mobile device ID.
- HTML5 Local Storage – HTML5 local storage allows data from websites to be stored or “cached" within your browser to store and retrieve data in HTML5 pages when the website is revisited.
How We Use Your Information
Information collected through these and similar technologies are used for the following purposes:
- Services – Some of these technologies are required to allow you to access and use our websites, applications and/or services. Without these technologies, some of the services and functionality of our websites, applications and services would not work properly.
- Performance Monitoring – Some of these technologies help us analyze and estimate traffic and assess the volume of use of our websites, and applications and services. They show us how visitors and customers interact with our digital properties, whether there are any errors, the degree to which certain web pages, applications, or services are accessed and used and how they are performing or operating. When these technologies are used for performance monitoring, no information that identifies you is collected.
- Marketing – Some of these technologies are used to tailor your experience on our websites, within our mobile applications, or across your applications or devices by influencing the promotions, advertisements and other marketing messages that may appear when you access or use these or other digital properties. We may use this information when you visit a website, use an application, or visit a location where we serve ads to send you relevant promotions and advertisements.
- Internal Business Purposes – We may also use the information we collect about you for a variety of routine internal purposes including but not limited to responding to your inquiries and requests for information, to detect, prevent, or investigate security breaches or fraud, and to maintain appropriate records for internal administrative and archival purposes.

How We May Allow Others to Collect Your Information
When you use our websites, applications, or services, we may allow third parties to collect device, usage, and location information across your different devices through software development kits, cookies, web beacons, communication networks, and other similar technologies. If you have opted-out from Bulzī data collection, that choice applies to any third party who collects data through our websites, applications or services. These third parties collect your information for the following purposes and for other purposes consistent with their own privacy policies:
