If you access the Service from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device or other transactional information for that device.
Tracking technology: We use what are commonly called “cookies,” a small data string our server writes to your hard drive, and other tracking technology to help us manage and track your interaction with the Vuga Platform. These technologies collect non-personally identifiable information to improve Vuga Services, including to keep count of return visits to our website or our advertisers’ or partners’ websites, collect and report on aggregate statistical information, save your password and login information, and / or display advertising or content based on your interests. We may also capture other data such as search criteria and results, date, time, connection speed and IP addresses.
