2. What information does Go For Benefits collect from me?
The amount and type of information we gather depends upon your use of the website and, in some cases, what type of information you choose to disclose. We may collect the following information from you:
Information Provided by You
We collect information from you when you voluntarily register with Go For Benefits and/or submit your personal information to us over the Website. Such personal information may include your name, email and postal addresses, phone number, birthdate, gender, and other information which you voluntarily provide to us. For example, if you ask us for information related to employment or grant opportunities, we may ask you to fill out a form and provide us with your name, address, email, phone number, and a brief explanation of your legal issue so that we can connect you with the right information or service provider. If you order any product from us, we will also ask for payment details, such as your credit or debit card and billing address so that your order be processed.
Information You Make Public
The Website may contain features that permit you to upload, post, transmit, display, perform or distribute content, media, or other information, including any personal information you choose to disclose through such features. For example, if you use your real name (or a variation thereon) as your username and post to a public-facing message board or other forum under your username, you are making your personal information public. Any information that you choose to disclose by means of such features becomes public information over which Go For Benefits is unable to exercise control. You should take caution when deciding to disclose your personal information by means of such features.
Device/Internet Connection Information
When you use the Website, we automatically gather information made available by your web browser (such as Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome), Internet service provider (such as Comcast or Time Warner), and device (such as your computer, phone, or tablet), depending on your settings for each. For example, we may collect your IP address, information about the operating system or type of device you use, the date and time you access the Website, and the location of your device. Generally, this information is anonymous and does not directly identify you; however, it could possibly identify you when associated with other information, such as that referenced in the paragraph above.
Information Provided by Third Parties
Go For Benefits may receive information about you and your Internet activities if you have provided it to a Third Party and we subsequently purchase, license, or otherwise acquire the information from the Third Party. For example, we purchase and manage opt-in email lists generated by Third Parties, such as affiliate websites and advertising organizations. Such information may include, but is not limited to, your personal and online interests, and Internet browsing habits. These Third Parties may have collected such information from you directly (such as when you registered with their websites) or by placing Cookies on your device, using web beacons, gathering IP addresses and log data, and so forth. The purpose of this practice, which is sometimes called “retargeting,” is to deliver content and advertising that is specific to your interests. For example, if you look at employment listings online, you may later be presented with Go For Benefits advertisements for similar opportunities. You can better learn about such Third-Party data collection and advertising practices, including how to opt-out of retargeting, at the following websites:
All payments are processed by third-party vendors, and not Go For Benefits itself. If you make a purchase on the Website, we will collect credit card numbers and related information, such as billing address, card number, and the expiration date of the card (“Credit Card Information”), but such information is sent directly to our payment processors and is never stored or otherwise retained by Go For Benefits.
From time to time, we may obtain other information from you, such as when you make a claim for a prize pursuant to a contest or other promotion run on the Website, when you request assistance through from our customer service department, and when you voluntarily subscribe to a Go For Benefits service or newsletter. You will always be asked to provide such other information voluntarily, and we will not collect it without your permission.
“Cookies” are files that are placed on your device by websites you visit. The purpose of a Cookie is to identify you as a unique user of the Website. A web beacon is programming code that can be used to, among other things, transfer an individual’s unique user identification (often in the form of a Cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows us to track certain websites you visit online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services you may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes.
We currently use Cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you with information we already have in our database, for the following purposes:

10. What about Third Party practices?
Third Party Cookies and Web Beacons
Advertising agencies, advertising networks, and other companies (together, “Third Parties”) who place advertisements on the Website and on the Internet generally may use their own cookies, web beacons, and other technology to collect information about individuals. Except as expressly provided herein, we do not control Third Parties’ use of such technology and we have no responsibility for the use of such technology to gather information about individuals. It is up to you to familiarize yourself with the privacy practices of such Third Parties.
Notwithstanding any other provision, we partner with third parties that collect information across various channels, including offline and online, for purposes of delivering more relevant advertising to you. Our partners may place or recognize a cookie on your computer, device, or directly in our emails/communications, and we may share personal information with them if you have submitted such information to us, such as your name, postal address, or email address. Our partners may link the nonpersonal information we share with them to the cookie stored on your browser or device, and they may collect information such as your IP address, browser or operating system type and version, and demographic or inferred-interest information. Our partners use this information to recognize you across different channels and platforms over time for advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes. For example, our partners may deliver an ad to you in your web browser based on a purchase you made in a physical retail store, or they may send a personalized marketing email to you based on the fact that you visited a particular website.
