Collecting User Behavioral Information and Personal Information.
When you visit a website (the “Website”) with Gubagoo services and software or otherwise use our services, Gubagoo may collect, retain and use information pertaining to your click and viewing behavior on the website (“Behavioral Information”). If you also submit your Personal Information (as defined below), either in a web form submission, live web chat, sms, or other form of digital or other medium, your Personal Information may be collected, retained, used and linked to your Behavioral Information that we have collected. “Personal Information” means personally identifiable information that can be specifically associated with, or that is sufficient to identify, you and includes your name and contact information (your phone number, address or email address). We may also obtain and use data and information about your online activity or metadata about you (such as geo-location data) either on or off the Website from third party sources in order to improve your experience with Gubagoo or the Website and to provide the services. If you engage in any live web chat or sms conversation using our services, we may also store any transcripts (“Transcripts”) from such conversations and link those Transcripts to your Personal Information and Behavioral Information. Some additional examples of services that may require use of Personal Information include using your address for delivery of products that you have requested (e.g., vehicles), using credit card information to process a payment that you have authorized, and submitting a credit application to lending institutions with your consent.
We do not knowingly collect or maintain information provided by children under the age of 16. If a child has provided us with personally-identifying information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us and we will remove the information.
