We may use, transfer, and disclose Other Information we collect for any purpose, except where applicable law requires otherwise.

How We Collect Information

Khwarizm Consulting and our third party service providers may collect both Personal Information and Other Information from a variety of sources that generally fall into three categories:

Direct Interactions: From your use of and interaction with us through the Channels and other activities such as account creation, submission of registrations and forms, or sales inquiries and transactions.
Publicly Available Data / Data from Third Parties: Data from Automated Interactions on non-Khwarizm Consulting websites, or other data you may have made publicly available, such as social media posts, or data provided by third party sources, such as marketing opt-in lists, or data aggregators.
Automated Interactions: From the use of technologies such as electronic communication protocols, cookies, embedded URLs or pixels, or widgets, buttons and tools.
Although Khwarizm Consulting’s use of Automated Interactions may change over time as technology evolves, the following descriptions are designed to provide you with additional detail about Khwarizm Consulting’s current approach to information collected from Automated Interactions.

Electronic Communications Protocols: As is true when you visit most websites and apps, Khwarizm Consulting may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type or device type), your IP address (which may identify your general geographic location or company), and date and time.

Khwarizm Consulting may also automatically receive and record information about your interaction with the Channels, such as clickstream information (when each Khwarizm Consulting webpage was visited and how much time was spent on the page), how often you access the Channel, performance data, aggregate usage, or general geo-location data.

Cookies: Khwarizm Consulting’s server will query your browser to see if there are “cookies” previously set by our electronic Channels. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store on a Web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. Cookies may collect information, including a unique identifier, user preferences, profile information, membership information, and general usage and volume statistical information. Cookies may also be used to collect individualized website use data, provide electronic Channel personalization, or conduct and measure the effectiveness of advertising in accordance with this Policy. Some cookies may remain on users’ computers after they leave the website. While the majority are set to expire within 1-24 months of your last visit to the website that set the cookie, others may not expire because of their nature, like cookies that remember opt-out preferences.

Your browser may provide you with information and control over cookies. You can set your browser to alert you when a cookie is being used, and accept or reject the cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Users can generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use the site, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion. Cookies, however, are important to the proper functioning of a site, and disabling them may degrade your experience and interfere with website features and customizations.

Khwarizm Consulting has engaged one or more third party service providers to track and analyze both individualized usage and volume statistical information from interactions with electronic Channels. The service provider(s) may set cookies on behalf of Khwarizm Consulting. Khwarizm Consulting also uses other third party cookies to provide advertising and personalization services in accordance with this Policy, and to track the performance of Khwarizm Consulting advertisements on our Channels and Khwarizm Consulting e-mails.

Managing Cookie Preferences: You may access or change your cookie preferences at any time. If you have any problems using this cookie preference mechanism, please fill out an inquiry form.

Flash Cookies: We may use Flash cookies, also known as “local shared objects,” on our electronic Channels that employ Flash technology. Flash cookies are used to remember the site’s settings to personalize the look and feel of the site. Like normal cookies, Flash cookies are represented as small files on your computer. One method of preventing Flash cookies from being placed is to adjust your preferences in the Macromedia Website Privacy Settings Panel at macromedia.com.

Embedded URLs: Khwarizm Consulting may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of the electronic Channels without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate the electronic Channels, but are not associated with Personal Information and are not used beyond the session.

Embedded Pixels and Similar Technologies: On the electronic Channels, Khwarizm Consulting and its service providers may use embedded pixel technologies for the purposes of identifying unique user visits (as opposed to aggregate hits) and for advertising purposes. In addition, embedded pixels or other technologies may be used in e-mails and our online display advertising to provide information on when the e-mail or ad was opened to track marketing campaign responsiveness; information collected using these technologies may be associated with the recipient’s e-mail address.

The pixel technology used on our Channels enable the synchronization of internal unique identifiers between Khwarizm Consulting (AddThis) and our third party partners to facilitate interest-based advertising. For a list of those third party partners, please click here. Please see the “Cookies and Do Not Track” section below for opt-out options.

Widgets, Buttons, and Tools: Our electronic Channels may include widgets, which are interactive mini-programs that run on our site to provide specific services from another company (e.g., links to bookmarked sites), along with buttons or other tools that link to other companies’ services (e.g., a “Like” button or third party map). The widget, button or tool may collect and automatically send Personal Information, such as your e-mail address, or Other Information (such as your browser information, or IP address), to a third party. Cookies may also be set or used by the widgets, buttons or tools to enable them to function properly or for other purposes, which may include advertising. Information collected or used by a widget, button or tool, including cookie settings and preferences, is governed by the privacy policy of the company that created it.

Physical Location: We may collect and share the physical location of your device for purposes consistent with this Policy, such as to provide you with personalized location-based services or content. In some instances, you may be permitted to allow or deny such use of your device’s location, but if you choose to deny such use, we may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalized services or content.

Khwarizm Consulting uses third parties to administer Khwarizm Consulting advertisements on third party electronic channels. Other Information, such as user community or implied or inferred interests, may be used in the selection of advertising to make sure that it has relevance to the user. Some ads may contain embedded pixels that may write and read cookies or return session connection information that allows advertisers to better determine how many individual users have interacted with the ad.

Khwarizm Consulting may also use advertising technologies and participate in advertising technology networks that collect Other Information from Khwarizm Consulting and non-Khwarizm Consulting websites, as well as from other sources, to show you Khwarizm Consulting-related advertisements on Khwarizm Consulting’s own and third-party websites. These advertisements may be tailored to your perceived interests using retargeting and behavioral advertising technologies, a set of practices collectively referred to as “Interest Based Advertising” in this Policy.

You also may opt out by visiting the Interest Based Advertising portion of the Privacy Choices tab of this Policy. Opting-out does not mean that you will stop receiving ads from Khwarizm Consulting. It means that you still stop receiving ads from Khwarizm Consulting that have been targeted to you based on your visits and browsing activity across websites over time.

Cookie-based tools that allow you to opt-out of Interest Based Advertising prevent Khwarizm Consulting and other participating advertising technology companies from serving interest-related ads to you on behalf of Khwarizm Consulting. They will only work on the Internet browser on which they are deposited, and they will only function only if your browser is set to accept third-party cookies. These cookie-based opt-out tools may not be as reliable where (e.g., certain mobile devices and operating systems) cookies are sometimes automatically disabled or removed. If you delete cookies, change browsers, computers or use another operating system, you will need to opt-out again.
