Cookies do not generally contain any Personal Information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually configure your browser to prevent this. Not accepting cookies may make certain features of the Website unavailable to you.
5.1.2 IP Address: You may visit many areas of the Website anonymously without the need to become a registered User or without creating an account on the Website. Even in such cases, Purple Stem may collect IP addresses automatically. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you begin Services with an Internet services provider. Each time you access the Website and each time you request one of the Purple Stem’s pages, the server logs your IP address.
5.1.3 Web Beacons: Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in web pages and e-mails. Purple Stem may use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that Purple Stem sends to Users to determine whether they have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that may also amount to Personal Information.
5.1.4 Tracking Content Usage: If you use the Website and you post audio visual materials including, without limitation, text, logos, artwork, graphics, pictures, advertisements, sound and other related intellectual property contained in such materials (collectively, “Content”) to your website or to a third party website, Purple Stem tracks and captures Non-Personal Information associated with User accounts and the use of Content.

These payment gateways are digitally encrypted, thereby providing the highest possible degree of privacy and care available, currently.

Purple Stem may disclose aggregated information, including to aggregators, about the use of the Website without Personal Information. We implement standard measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception of Personal Information.
