Information We Collect
We collect the following information: air quality data and GPS location, your first and last name, email address, password if you create a ‘User’ account.
Air quality data and GPS information is collected anonymously to provide you and the TZOA community with helpful features such as warnings, air quality maps, etc, without connecting this information to your name.
We use third party tracking-utility partners to gather additional information automatically, including internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data. This information does not identify users, and we store it in our log files. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
This type of information is collected to make our products and services more useful to you. In some of our emails to you, we will use a “click-through URL” to make your experience as easy as possible. When you click on one of these URLs, our web server detects that you clicked on the link from your email before arriving at your destination website. Tracking click-throughs helps us determine your interest in particular topics and helps us measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
