We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when you visit and/or use our Site and/or Services. This Privacy Policy provides information regarding EqualWeb’s privacy practices, including details with respect to the information that may be collected about Website End-Users during their interaction with the User’s website, on which the Widget is embedded.
Capitalized terms which are not defined herein, shall have the meaning ascribed to them in our Terms of Service at EqualWeb (“TOS”), into which this Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference.

Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User and/or Website End-User, and which is available to us while a User is entering into and/or using the Site and/or Services and/or while your Website End-Users use the Widget via your website. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, behavioral information and aggregated information, and may contain, among other things, the activity of the User on the Site and/or Services, the activity of your Website End-User on your website, type of operating system, User’s ‘click-stream’ or searches on the Site and/or Services and Website End-User’s ‘click stream’ or searches on your website, type and version of browser, keyboard language, screen resolution, etc.
