What personal information you collect from your website/app users.
Websites collect personal information by making a record of your computer’s ID and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. These are unique to your computer and can be traced back to you. Websites also collect information by placing cookies – small files of text that can collect and store information – on the hard drive of the computer you are using. The cookies collect and store information such as:
- how many times you visit the site and which pages you visit
- your preferences, such as preferred language, font size and accessibility services
- your user name and password
- items in your shopping cart
- your location
This information can be used to send you targeted ads and monitor your activities online.
How you collect the information.
Smart phones and tablets have many identifiers built into them that allow the manufacturer, your mobile service provider and Wi-Fi providers to collect information about you.
As well, apps that you install can identify you to app developers, advertisers and data brokers. If you allow your apps to use GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth options, a lot of information about your location and your activities can be collected.
How you use any collected information.
Once information about you has been collected, it can be used, shared – and possibly abused – in countless different ways. Here are just a few:
- It can be used to tailor electronic ads specifically to your habits and interests.
- Depending on your privacy settings, friends of friends of friends may have access to your online profiles and can find out what you are doing every day
- When you set your settings to “public,” you enable everyone to see the personal information you post
- They may use this in ways you’re not comfortable with, so it’s a good idea to limit who you share content with
- A hacker or other bad actor could gain access to your personal information, including your bank account or other financial information.
- A company may be able to track you when you are shopping in a store and use your information in ways you may not like.
How you keep information safe.
Data protection and preventing identity theft are a top concern for most people when they go online. You may not want to, but with many websites and online services it has become a necessary evil to provide personal information when becoming a member, making a purchase or just expressing an interest. This could include your full name, address, date of birth and more. If this sort of information was ever to fall into the hands of criminals, it could be easily misused, and likely result in identity theft.
