This Privacy Statement explains how we, CertiPay, collect, use, share and store information about individuals (“you”) and your interactions with our website at www.CertiPay.com and our other websites (“Site”). It also explains your choices, such as opting out of receiving newsletters and targeted advertising.
We collect and use information about you in several ways. We receive information directly from you when you send us email, share a photo, complete a form on our Site (such as a survey or a request for a news or contact entry) sign up to receive email from us, or call us with questions. We collect information electronically when you browse our Site.
There are two types of information we collect – anonymous and personal. Anonymous information is information that cannot be used to identify you individually. We collect anonymous information automatically. Personal information is information that can be used to identify you individually, such as your name, address, email address, or phone number. We collect personal information only when you give it to us. You may be asked to provide personal information anytime you are in contact with us. We never share personal or anonymous data. We may combine your personal information with other information to provide and improve our products, services, and advertising. You are not required to provide any personal information that we request, but if you choose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our services or respond to any questions you might have.
I. What information do we collect? How do we collect it? What do we do with it?
The type of information we collect from you depends on how you interact with us. You can use our Site without providing us with any information other than anonymous information we collect automatically.
A. Information you provide directly
We obtain information that identifies you personally directly from you. We ask for your contact information (name, street address, email address, and phone numbers) when you request a information or sign up for electronic newsletters, or participate in other promotional activities. We may also ask for information that helps us understand more about your interest in CertiPay, such as demographic information like name, address, company name, email, phone and personal or professional interests. We use the information that you voluntarily provide to reply to your requests, to update and improve the content on our Site or in our electronic newsletters, and to assist with marketing research.

1. Information about your visit
2. Information About Your Location
From your IP address, we can tell generally where you are when you are accessing our Site, i.e., which city.
C. Information Third Parties Collect Electronically Automatically
1. Third-Party Cookies for Site Use Analysis We use third parties such as Google to help us analyze how people are using our Site. We also use the Google Analytics service to provide us with demographic data about our users, such as age and gender, on an anonymous basis. That Google service uses a cookie that can be recognized by Google or its affiliate DoubleClick when you visit other websites.
2. Third-Party Cookies Used to Target Ads to You When You are on Other Websites We work with other companies who use their cookies or beacons to target CertiPay ads to you when you visit other websites. This is called retargeting and is common practice. You may also see third party ads on our Site that are targeted to you based on your prior visits to that third party’s website. Other companies we work with target other payroll industry ads to you on other websites. This is called behavioral advertising, because you receive ads based on your prior online behavior. For example, when you visit our Site you may receive a cookie on your browser that is read when you visit Linkedin using that same browser, so that during your visits to the Linkedin website you might receive advertising based on the pages you visited on our Site. “Beacons” are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about website usage across websites and over time.
