We collect both Personal Information and Other Information about visitors to our Site, as described below. For purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” means information we can directly associate with a specific person without any additional information, such as an email address or phone number. “Other Information” means any information that is not Personal Information. We may combine Other Information and Personal Information, in which case we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
We may also combine Personal Information or Other Information we have about you with additional information that we or third parties collect in other contexts – like when we communicate with you by phone or email. In those circumstances, we will treat the combined information in accordance with this Policy.

Other information you choose to provide to us in your email or through a free text field on the form.
Other Information. We also collect Other Information automatically when you visit our Site. This may include information such as your IP address and domain name, your Internet service provider, the time and duration of your visit, how you used the Site (including pages viewed and actions taken), the URLs from the websites you visit before and after navigating to the Site, your operating system and browser type, your software and hardware attributes, and your general geographic location (for example, your city, state, or metropolitan region). We collect this information using the following technologies:
Server Logs. When you use the Site, we automatically receive and record certain information from your computer (or other device) and your browser. To obtain such information, we may use server logs or applications that recognize your computer and gather information about its online activity.
Pixel tags. The Site or the emails that you receive from us may use an application known as a “pixel tag” (also known as a “clear gif” or “web beacon”). A pixel tag is an electronic tracking mechanism that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include Personal Information. For example, it allows an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.
We may partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, and use some of the information described above. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use pixel tags on the Site or in email communications from us. This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including analytics, as described in the “Third-Party Analytics” section below.

Third-party service providers. We use third-party service providers to help us manage and improve our Site.

The Personal and Other Information we collect through or in connection with the Site is transferred to and processed in the United States for the purposes described above. We may also subcontract the processing of your data, or otherwise share your data with, affiliates or third parties in the United States or countries other than your country of residence.

The Site is not directed to children under the age of 13, and Aileron does not knowingly collect Personal or Other Information through the Site from anyone it knows is under the age of 13.
