Information Collected from Other Sources

Chicken & Egg may also obtain information about you from other sources, including service providers and third-party information that we collect. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, except to the extent such data combined by or on behalf of Chicken & Egg with Chicken & Egg-collected information, this Privacy Policy is not intended to limit Chicken & Egg’s activities regarding such third-party-sourced, or non-Site-sourced, information, and such data will only be treated as Chicken & Egg-collected information to the extent it is combined with Chicken & Egg-collected information. Chicken & Egg is not responsible or liable for the accuracy of the information provided by third parties or for third-party policies or practices.

Automatically Collected Information

We, our service providers, and other third parties may automatically collect certain information from your computer and/or device when you use the Site, including users’ online activities over time and across third-party websites and our Site.

The automated means include cookies, web beacons, and other technologies, and the information collected may include information such as:

  • URLs that refer users to our Site;
  • Search terms used to reach our Site;
  • Details about the devices that are used to access our Site (such as IP address, browser type and language, and operating system information); and
  • Details about users’ interaction with our Site (such as the date, time, frequency, and length of visits, specific content and pages accessed and buttons clicked during the visits, and information provided by you, including email addresses).

We may combine information you give to us online and offline. We may also combine or supplement this information with publicly available information and additional information we receive from or have cross-referenced with our third-party vendors and others.

Cookies and Tracking GIFs

We may use “cookies” and other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you visit the Site. Cookies are small text files placed on visitors’ computers and/or devices to store information about their activities on the Site, such as their user preferences. In addition to cookies, tracking GIFs may be set by us or third parties to collect information about your use of the Site. Tracking GIFs are small image files embedded within the content of the Site to monitor which parts of the Site are visited and whether particular content is of interest.

Most web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies, but many provide options to allow you to stop accepting new cookies or to disable existing cookies. Please be aware that if you disable the cookies on your computer you may not be able to use certain features of the Site, and disabling cookies may invalidate opt outs that rely on cookies to function.

Note that your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online services you visit; such signals may prevent third parties from collecting information about your online activities over time and across different websites. California law requires us to disclose how the Site responds to these kinds of “Do Not Track” signals. Like many websites, the Site currently is not designed to respond to “Do Not Track” signals from visitors’ browsers. To learn more about “Do Not Track” you may wish to visit this site.
