Information about the data that we gather
At Check4Lead, we gather two types of information described in their sections below. It includes what we use each type for.
Non-personally identifiable information
With the help of cookies outlined on its page, we gather a lot of information on users using Check4Lead. We aggregate it. This will include a variety of things, such as how many people visit each page on the website. It includes how many links they click and the typical journey they go on when they visit. This is all information gathered at a high level, and we cannot identify individual users based on this information. However, we track certain stuff like which states our visitors come from. If you visit certain websites, like social media websites such as Facebook, additional information may be passed on to us.
Some of this non-identifiable information includes statistics on IP addresses and operating systems. It can be the browser software commonly used for our platforms. It helps us optimize our platform for the devices our users are using. None of the information covered in this section constitutes personally identifiable information in itself. However, IP addresses may give us a high-level understanding of our users’ location. Some of this high-level non-personally identifiable information may be used for advertiser purposes. Advertisers may better understand our user statistics and, if they have advertised, how many people from each region have interacted with their ads.
Third party software
Check4Lead uses various 3rd party software that may also use their cookies and thereby aggregate a bunch of privacy information on our user base.

However, this information isn’t collected automatically, as is a lot of the other information. We rely on you submitting this information to us for us to be able to get it. However, we do collect it on different parts of the website.
Suppose you submit a form to enter personally identifiable information such as your name, phone number, or email.
