6.1. Why SeedLeaf uses Data Collection Technology

Data Collection Technology helps us to save your password for future log-ins, detect and prevent fraud, and help us (and our ad partners) manage our online marketing program and deliver ads that are relevant or may be of interest to you. Data Collection Technology also helps us personalize and improve the performance of our Services. For example, we use Google Analytics on our websites to collect information to improve the Services, such as information about our users’ demographics and interests through their browsing habits. Google Analytics places a cookie on your web browser so that it can identify you the next time you visit the website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.

6.2. Our policy on “Do Not Track” signals

California’s Online Privacy Protection Act requires website operators to disclose how they respond to web browser’s “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals. Some web browsers incorporate a DNT or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including SeedLeaf, do not respond to DNT signals.
