Similarly, information that users directly submit to a Coach is not covered by this Privacy Policy.

This may include your IP address, domain name, inferred location based on your IP address, Internet service provider, date and time of your visit to our website, your use of the Services during your current session and over time (including pages viewed and files downloaded), URLs from websites you visit before and after navigating our website, your computer's or mobile device's operating system and browser type, and your software and hardware attributes (including device IDs). We employ various mechanisms to collect such information, including:

Server Logs: When you visit our website, we automatically receive and record certain information from your computer (or other devices) and your browser. This may include your IP address, the web pages you visit, the features you use on our website, and your general geographic location inferred from your IP address. We may obtain this information through server logs or similar applications that recognize your computer or other devices and collect information about their online activity.

Cookies: Cookies are small files stored on your computer or other device by your web browser. We use cookies in providing our Services. Cookies enable the Services to recognize if you have visited before and may store user preferences and other information. For example, cookies collect information about your use of the Services during your current session and over time (including pages viewed and files downloaded), your computer or device's operating system and browser type, your Internet service provider, your domain name and IP address, your general geographic location, and the website you visited before and after accessing the Services. You can configure your browser to refuse all cookies or notify you when a cookie is being set, allowing you to decide whether to accept it. You can also delete cookies from your computer. However, blocking or deleting cookies may affect the proper functioning of certain features on our website. We use the following types of cookies:

- Essential Cookies: These cookies are necessary for the Services to function and allow you to interact with and use the features of the Services. If your browser does not permit these cookies, we cannot provide certain Services.

- Preference Cookies: These cookies collect information about your choices and preferences, such as your preferred language or the country from which you access our Services. We use this information to customize your experience with the Services.

- Analytics Cookies: Our third-party service providers may use cookies for analytics purposes, collecting information about you and your use of the Services. For more information and opt-out options, please refer to the "Third-Party Analytics and Targeted Advertising" section below.

- Advertising Cookies: The Services may use cookies to make advertising messages more relevant to you. For more information and opt-out options, please refer to the "Third-Party Analytics and Targeted Advertising" section below.

Pixel Tags: The Services may utilize pixel tags, also known as clear gifs or web beacons. A pixel tag is an electronic file, typically a one-pixel image, embedded in a web page or email to transmit information, which may include Personal Information. For example, it allows us to determine if a user has opened a particular email. Deleting or blocking cookies will not prevent the collection of information through pixel tags and similar tracking mechanisms. However, as discussed in the "Third-Party Analytics and Targeted Advertising" section, you can take measures to limit the use of such information for advertising purposes. Nevertheless, we may continue to use the information for other purposes, including analytics.

Local Storage: We may use HTML5 local storage to collect and retain certain information about you. Local storage data is not deleted when you clear your cookies, but you can delete it by following your browser developer's instructions.

Information collected on third-party sites: In some cases, we use the described mechanisms to track users when they navigate to and interact with third-party sites. For instance, we may use cookies, pixels, scripts, or other tracking mechanisms to identify when a user of our Services visits a business partner's website and applies for a job. This information allows us, among other things, to analyze how many applicants for a specific position discovered it through PopCandi. Although we do not disclose Personal Information combined with such tracking data to our business partners, we may provide de-identified information and analytics, as discussed in the "How We Share Information with Third Parties" section.

These service providers may collect and/or use your information, including Personal Information, to assist us in providing the Services and achieving the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy.

Additionally, the Services may contain links to third-party websites with comment and social media features, including Facebook's "like" button and Twitter's "follow" button. By using these features, you may disclose your Personal Information not only to those third-party websites and services but also to their users and the public in general. As these third-party websites and services are not operated by PopCandi, we are not responsible for their content or practices. The collection, use, and disclosure of your information on such websites and services are governed by their respective privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy.

Third-Party Analytics and Targeted Advertising

We partner with certain third parties for analytics, auditing, research, and reporting purposes. These third parties may use web logs, pixel tags, or similar online tracking mechanisms and may set and access cookies on your computer or other device. For example, Employers may use pixel tags or scripts provided by PopCandi to track users who navigate to their websites and submit job applications.

The Services may also enable third-party tracking mechanisms to collect information about your usage over time and across unaffiliated websites for online behavioral advertising.

For information about behavioral advertising practices, privacy, and confidentiality, please visit the websites of the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance.

The use of online tracking mechanisms by third parties is subject to their own privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy. If you wish to prevent third parties from setting and accessing cookies on your computer, you can configure your browser to block cookies. Moreover, you may opt out of certain targeted advertising by using the opt-out tools provided by the following organizations: Network Advertising Initiative, Digital Advertising Alliance, TRUSTe's opt-out tool, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (for users in Canada), and the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (for users in the EU).
