What Information Is Collected and Why it is Collected
- General Tracking: We keep track of the pages visited by each user. Our web server automatically collects some information about you when you request pages from our server, including your IP address. We aggregate this data with other user data to track overall visitor traffic patterns. We use this information to improve our Website by making it more responsive to the needs and preferences of our users. This information does not identify you personally.
- Click Path Tracking: Technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts are used by Family Care Plus and its affiliates, our marketing, testing, and quality assurance partners, or our analytics, information technology, and web monitoring service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the Website, tracking users’ movements around the Website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as an aggregated basis.
- Automated Information Collection: We collect certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to provide the best user experience possible, and to improve marketing, analytics, or Website functionality.
