Information we collect by automated means

When you visit our Services online, we collect certain information automatically. To collect this information, we may use cookies, web beacons, log files, and similar technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor‘s computer or other internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “log file” tracks your actions on websites and may collect information related to your device, browser, internet service provider, and the time of your activity.  A “web beacon,” also known as a pixel tag or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server. We may also collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites. The information we collect automatically may include:

    • URLs that refer visitors to our websites;
    • Search terms used to reach our websites;
    • Details about the devices that are used to access our websites (such as IP address, browser information, location information, device information, and operating system information);
    • Details about your interaction with our websites (such as the date, time, length of stay, and specific pages accessed during your visits to our websites, and which emails you may have opened); and
    • Usage information (such as the number and frequency of visitors to our websites).

We may associate this information with your Tula account if you have one, the device you use to connect to our Services, or email or social media accounts that you use to engage with Tula.

Data Transfers

Tula is headquartered in the United States, and we currently only have operations and entities in the United States.

We may provide links to third-party websites, services, and applications that are not operated or controlled by Tula.

We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third-party service before providing any information to or through them. The Services may include an activity feed, social media buttons, and widgets, such as the Facebook "Like" button or the "Share This" button. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the third-party service that provides the feature.

 

 

Data Retention

Our retention periods for personal data are based on business needs and legal requirements. We retain personal data for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which the data was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose.
