What Is and Is Not PII
As used in US privacy law and information security practices, PII is information that on its own or with other information can be used to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, credit card or other account number).
What PII does CloudCoreo Collect?
When and How Does CloudCoreo Collect PII?
CloudCoreo collects information about you when you use the Site or any CloudCoreo Software and Other Services, as described below. The Site and some of the CloudCoreo Software and Other Services also enable you to communicate with CloudCoreo and other people, and those communications may be transmitted through and stored on the CloudCoreo systems.
When you use the Site or certain of the CloudCoreo Software and Other Services, some information is also automatically collected about your use, such as your IP address, operating system, browser type, activity on the Site, as well as the address of a referring web site. This information frequently is aggregated non-PII unless CloudCoreo decides to combine it with or links it to any of the identifying information previously described.
A “Web beacon” (or “clear gif”) is a small and transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel, that is placed on a website or in an email and that monitors the behavior of the user visiting the website or sending the email, and frequently in combination with cookies, unobtrusively (usually invisibly) allows checking that a user has accessed certain content. Common uses are email tracking and page tagging for web analytics. Alternative names are web bug, tracking bug, tag, or page tag.
Disabling Cookies. With computing devices that use traditional web browsers you may be able to configure your computer and browser to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies altogether. You do this through the settings on your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome). Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s “Help” menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. However, the Site and any of the CloudCoreo Software and Other Services are intended to function with cookies. Thus, disabling cookies in any manner may cause features of the Site or any of the CloudCoreo Software and Other Services not to function either as efficiently or at all.

CloudCoreo also collects information that you voluntarily provide which may contain PII. For example, the Site might request and then collect billing information, such as your credit card number, when you purchase the right to use CloudCoreo Software and Other Services. The Site also may collect your name, user name, address, email address, telephone number(s), other contact and demographic information when you register and set up an account, ﬁll out a form, submit a comment or contact CloudCoreo or other users by e-mail or other means that use the Site. You may also join user groups or forums administered by the Site. CloudCoreo cannot control how other users of the Site use information you provide that is visible to those other users. Thus, CloudCoreo recommends exercising care in submitting information or other contributions on the Site, and CloudCoreo is not responsible for information that users supply in Site areas that are accessible to other users of the Site.
