Every time you use the Site (e.g., navigate to a specific page on the Site), we collect Personal Information and non-Personal Information regarding that use, as discussed above. For example, for the Business Purpose of improving out Site, we collect how, when, and which parts of the Site or its features you use.

To assist us in collecting and storing this Personal Information and non-Personal Information, we may employ a variety of technologies, including “Cookies,” local browser storage, and “web beacons,” “pixels,” or “tags.”
A “Cookie” is a small amount of data a website operator, or a third party whose content is embedded in that website, may store in your web browser and that the website operator or, as applicable, the third party, can access when you visit the website. A Cookie may also refer to web-browser-based storage provided by Adobe’s Flash plugin (a “Flash Cookie”).
A “web beacon, pixel or tag” is a small, usually-transparent image placed on a web page that allows the operator of that image, which may be the operator of the website you visit or a third party, to read or write a Cookie.

We support the development and implementation of a standard "do not track" browser feature that provides customers with control over the collection and use of information about their web-browsing activities. Once a standardized "do not track" feature is released, we intend to adhere to the browser settings accordingly.
Mobilize takes reasonable measures to help protect Personal Information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. These measures include using Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Transport Layer Security (TLS), or similar encryption technology when Personal Information is transmitted over the Internet, and using firewalls to help prevent external access into our network. However, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.
We restrict access to Personal Information in our possession to our employees, Service Providers, and Online Tool Providers who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, improve or support our Site. If we share Personal Information with Service Providers or Online Tool Providers, we require that they also use reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information, and only use your Personal Information for the purposes for which we share it with them.
