- Device data, such as your device's operating system type and version, manufacturer and model, browser type, mobile application/SDK version, screen resolution, RAM and disk size, CPU usage, device type (e.g., phone, tablet), internet protocol (IP) address, unique identifiers (including identifiers used for advertising purposes), API keys, language settings, mobile device carrier, radio/network information (e.g., WiFi, LTE, 3G) and status, time zones, and general location information such as city, state or geographic area.

Cookies and similar technologies. Some of the automatic collection described above is facilitated by cookies and similar technologies:
- Web Beacons (also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many visitors view our Services, track when our email messages are opened, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user's device, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an e-mail).
- SDKs. We use third-party software development kits ("SDKs") in our mobile applications. A SDK is third-party computer code that may be used for a variety of purposes, including to provide us with analytics regarding the use of our mobile applications, to integrate with social media, add features or functionality to our app, or to facilitate online advertising.
- Session Replay Technologies. We use third party services provided by FullStory that employ software code to record users' interactions with the Services in a manner that allows us to watch DVR-like replays of those user sessions. The replays include users' clicks, mobile app touches, mouse movements, scrolls and keystrokes/key touches during those sessions. These replays help us diagnose usability problems and identify areas for improvement. You can learn more about FullStory at https://www.fullstory.com/legal/privacy-policy and you can opt-out of session recording by FullStory at https://www.fullstory.com/optout/.
Some of these cookies and similar technologies are served by third party service providers or business partners, and can be used by these parties to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits the Services and other online services. These third parties and Thanx may use the following types of cookies and similar technologies:
- Advertising. Used by advertising companies to collect information about how you use online services over time. These companies use this information to show you ads they believe will be relevant to you online, and to measure how the ads perform.
- Analytics. Help us understand how the Services are performing and being used. These cookies may work with web beacons included in emails we send to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. For example, we use Google Analytics a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Please see Google's Data Privacy and Security Policy for information on how Google protects your data. You can opt-out of the use of Google Analytics by installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
- Essential. Necessary to allow the technical operation of our Services (e.g., remembering your settings, allow you to log into your account, redirect you when you log out).

The Thanx Services enables you to receive a variety of rewards via loyalty programs in exchange for allowing us to collect and use personal information about you.
If you wish to stop participating in the Services, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Response To "Do Not Track" Signals
"Do Not Track" is a feature enabled on some browsers that sends a signal to request that a website disable its tracking or cross-website user tracking. Thanx shall treat any user-enabled global privacy controls, such as a browser plug-in or privacy setting, device setting, or other mechanism, that communicate or signal the consumer's choice to opt-out of the sale of their personal information as a valid request submitted pursuant to the CCPA for that browser or device, or, if known, for the consumer.
