Information Collected by SeekVerify

SeekVerify is a database of publicly available sources of information aggregated for User convenience. Through SeekVerify, Visitors can access certain materials posted to or made available through the Site as compiled, distributed, and displayed by SeekVerify and other third-party content providers (“Third-Party Providers”) including, but not limited to, third-party websites or services that provide information about individuals (each, a “Search Subject”) that can be searched for and accessed through the Site (“SeekVerify Checks”).

SeekVerify gathers three types of information: information that User submit to us, information that is collected automatically about User usage of the Site, and information about Search Subjects.

We collect information that User provide when User use the Site, including, but not limited to, when User submit an online application to become a SeekVerify member (“Member”), which enables User to utilize a host of services made available to Members by and through the Site (“Member Services”); when User submit a request to opt out of SeekVerify’s People Search results; when User conduct a SeekVerify Check; or when User contact us with a question, comment, or request. This can include, but is not limited to, User: (a) e-mail address; (b) full name; (c) company name; (d) date of birth; (e) password; (f) mailing address; (g) credit card information; and (h) information associated with a Search Subject (such as a name, age, or address) that User use to conduct a SeekVerify Check.

Information Collected Automatically About Your Usage of the Site

As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about User. We do this to improve services we offer User, to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.

When User visit the Site, we or our third-party service providers may use a "Cookie" – a small, text-only file that we save to User hard drive – or similar technologies to automatically collect and store non-personally-identifiable information about User’ usage of the Site such as User’ IP address, User’ browser type, the links and items User click on, ad impressions on User web browser, and the web pages User visit. Cookies enhance User experience at the Site, and are in many instances necessary for the provision of Member Services. For example, we use Cookies to store User’s password so User don’t have to enter it more than once, and to recognize User if User return to the Site using the same web browser.

If User do not want the Site to collect this information through Cookies, User may set User web browser to reject Cookies from the Site, or to inform User when a Cookie has been sent to User’s computer and provide User with the opportunity to refuse that Cookie. Each web browser is different, so please check browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to change User Cookie preferences. Please be advised that where User' disable or reject Cookies, User may not be able to use the Member Services or experience the full functionality of the Site.

These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking User’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our User base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.

Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site or to display advertising based upon User Web browsing activity use LSOs such as HTML 5 or Flash to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs.

Behavioral Targeting / Re-Targeting

We partner with a third party ad network to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partner uses cookies and Web beacons to collect non-personal information about User activities on this and other Web sites to provide User targeted advertising based upon User interests. If User wishes to not have this information used for the purpose of serving User targeted ads, User may opt-out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt User out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.
