4. Information We Collect From You:
“Personally identifiable information” or “personal information” is information that can be associated with a particular person and could be used to identify that particular person, whether from the information alone or from a combination of other information that Chayne Let’s Lynk has or is likely to have access to. Chayne Let’s Lynk does not consider personal information to be information that is anonymous or aggregated so that it could no longer be used to identify a particular person.
We collect personal information from you that you provide to us directly and voluntarily, such as when you register for or during your use of our Services. Such personal information that you provide to us voluntarily may include, but is not limited to, name, physical address, email, telephone number, and financial information.
During your use of our Service, we may automatically collect information about your use of our Services, including but not limited to, device identifiers, MAC address, location information, computer and connection information, IP address, browsing history, and web log information.

If you provide personal information about someone else, you agree that such personal information that you provide about someone else is provided with their consent and that you

We may use session and persistent “cookies,” session logs, spotlight ads/web beacons/GIF/pixel tags, and third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as DART, Omniture tags, DoubleClick, Efficient Frontier, and Google Analytics) to collect aggregate or other non-personally identifiable information about users of our Services.

Upon request, your personal information from closed accounts will be deleted or made anonymous within a reasonable time.

6. How We Collect Information:
We collect information you voluntarily provide to us in connection with your registration and use of our Services.
We may also obtain information about you from outside sources. For example, our affiliates may share with us certain information you have previously provided to them. We also may obtain commercially-available demographic information from third parties. If you engage with us, our affiliates or our partners via social media, the social media platforms also may share certain information with Chayne Let’s Lynk. You may be able to adjust your social media privacy settings to limit the sharing of your social media data.
Other than the information collected through outside sources and information that you voluntarily provide to us through your registration and use of our Services, information may also be collected in connection with certain software and Internet-based tools, which are explained in more detail herein below.
A “cookie” is a small text file that helps us in many ways to make your use of our Services more enjoyable and meaningful to you. For example, cookies avoid you having to log in every time you come back to use our Services. They also allow us to tailor our Services or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences. There are a couple different types of cookies.
A “session” cookie is stored only in your computer’s working memory (RAM) and only lasts for your browsing session. When you close all your browser’s windows, or when you shut down your computer, the session cookie disappears forever.
A “persistent” cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive until a specified date, which could be tomorrow, next week, or 10 years from now. Persistent cookies stay on your computer until either a) they expire, b) they are overwritten with newer cookies, or c) you manually remove them. Most browsers can be configured not to accept cookies; however, this may prevent you from having access to some of our Services’ functions or features. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. The Help feature on most browsers provides information on how to accept cookies, disable cookies, or to notify you when receiving a new cookie.
Where applicable, we support Do Not Track (“DNT”). Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.
Our Services may use third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as DART, Omniture tags, DoubleClick, Efficient Frontier, and Google Analytics) to capture click-through statistics.
Our Services may use spotlight ads/web beacons/GIF/pixel tags which are instrumentation tools that help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or not and, if so, how many times. Emails or electronic newsletters we send may use tools (e.g., pixel tags or web beacons) to gather email metrics and information to improve the reader’s experience such as how many of the emails are opened, if they were printed or forwarded, the type of device (e.g., mobile or PC) from which they were opened, and the city, state, and county associated with the
applicable IP address. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a webpage, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon.
When you use our Services the server housing the pages may automatically generate a “session log.” We use session logs to help us determine how people travel through our Services. In this way, we can structure our pages so that the information most frequently visited is easier to find. By tracking page visits, we can also determine if the information we’re providing is being used. The data gathered may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you came, the website or software application that referred you, the pages you visited and the date and time of those visits.
We will disclose your information (in some cases personal information) with third parties, that is parties other than Chayne Let’s Lynk, in the following circumstances:
- We may disclose your information to third-party service providers to perform services associated with our business, including payment processing, bill collection, website and/ or application operations, data analysis, e-mail delivery, hosting services, customer service and to assist us in our marketing efforts.
