Personal and Business Information
When you use the Services, we may collect what is generally called “personally identifiable” information, or “Personal Information,” which is information that specifically identifies an individual.

Personal Information also includes other information, such as date of birth, geographic area when any such information is linked to information that identifies a specific individual, gender, birthday, marital status, educational level, and health history.
We may use this information (i) operate our business and provide the Services to you, (ii) personalize your use of the Services and gain usage insights, (iii) provide you access to third-party products and services, (iv) support research and academic research, (v) address security issues and resolve disputes, (vi) tailor our advertising and marketing, (vii) communicate with you and respond to your requests, and (viii) related activities. You have the ability to opt-out of receiving promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions contained in a promotional communication.
All financial and billing information that we may collect, whether now or in the future, is used solely to check the qualifications of prospective customers and to bill for Services. Billing information is not used by Pegara for marketing or promotional purposes.

Social Media Cookies
These cookies are used when you share information, including but not limited to the “Risk Reduction Score”, using a social media sharing button or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking site such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this. This information may be linked to targeting and/or advertising activities.
“Web Beacons” (a.k.a. clear GIFs or pixel tags) are tiny graphic image files imbedded in a web page or email that may be used to collect anonymous information about your use of our Services, the websites of selected advertisers and the emails, special promotions or newsletters that we send you. The information collected by Web Beacons allows us to analyze how many people are using the Services, using the selected advertisers’ websites or opening our emails, and for what purpose, and also allows us to enhance our interest-based advertising.
We may use third-party website analytics services in connection with the Services, including, for example, to register mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity and text that you type into the Site. These website analytics services generally do not collect Personal Information unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across websites which do not use their services
Mobile Device Indentifiers
Mobile device identifiers are data stored on your mobile device that may track mobile device and data and activities occurring on and through it, as well as the applications installed on it. Mobile device identifiers enable collection of Personal Information (such as media access control, address and location) and Aggregate Data. Mobile device identifiers help Pegara learn more about our users’ demographics and internet behaviors.
Like many standard website servers, our web servers use log files. Log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of clicks. Log files are used to analyze trends, administer the site, track aggregated users' movement and gather broad demographic information. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Is Information Shared With Third Parties?
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include but are not limited to registering users, processing credit card payments, sending postal mail and email, analyzing data, providing customer service, performing customer surveys. To perform these functions, these companies and individuals will have access to information needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for other purposes.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, customer information may be transferred to: (i) a parent or subsidiary; (ii) an acquirer of assets or equity; or (iii) a successor by merger.
We may also release information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce an agreement with Pegara; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Pegara, our users, or others. Potential use may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.
We have industry reasonable security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the data under our control.
