Electronic Communications Protocols and Cookies: In addition to the information specified above, swyMe may collect information about your use of the swyme.com Web sites through electronic communications protocols and cookies. As is true when you visit most Web sites, swyMe may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type), and date and time. swyMe also uses cookies, embedded URLs and embedded pixels to capture additional information.

Cookies: swyMe’s server will query your browser to see if there are “cookies” previously set by the swyMe Web sites. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store on a Web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. Cookies on the Web sites may collect a unique identifier, user preferences and profile information and membership information. swyMe also uses cookies to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personally identifiable information. Some cookies may remain on the user’s computer after they leave the Web site, and the majority are set to expire within 30 – 365 days. While we do not offer an opt-out for cookies, browsers provide you information and control over cookies. You can set your browser to alert you when a cookie is being used, and accept or reject the cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Users can generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use the site, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion.

swyMe uses (and, where specified, shares) your personal information for the following purposes:

To provide online forums and social networks. Some services available on the Web sites permit you to participate in interactive discussions, post comments, opportunities or other content to a bulletin board or exchange, or otherwise engage in networking activities. Some of these services are moderated; all may be accessed for technical reasons. swyMe does not control the content that users post to these forums or social networks. You should carefully consider whether you wish to submit personal information to these forums or social networks and should tailor any content you submit appropriately and in accordance with the relevant terms of use.

To select content, improve quality and facilitate use of the Web Sites. swyMe may use your personal information, including the information gathered as a result of site navigation and electronic protocols and cookies (including third party cookies), to help create and personalize Web site content, facilitate your use of the Web sites (for example, to facilitate navigation and the login process, avoid duplicate data entry, enhance security, keep track of shopping cart additions and preserve order information between sessions), improve Web site quality, track marketing campaign responsiveness, and evaluate page response rates.

To communicate with you about a conference or event. We or our partners may communicate with you about a conference or event hosted or co-sponsored by swyMe or one of our partners.
