Collection of Data

“Personal Information” means information associated with or used to identify or contact a specific person. Personal Information includes (1) contact data (such as email address, telephone number and employers); (2) demographic data (date of birth, mailing address or postal code) and (3) certain Usage Data (defined below), such as IP address or User-generated content.

Progi refers to this automatically collected information as “Device Information.” Such collection of your Usage information or Usage data by Progi is only applied to your activity within the ProgiPix sites.

Generally, Progi does not consider Usage Data as Personal Information because Usage Data by itself usually does not identify an individual. Personal Information and Usage Data may be linked together.
