We are likely to collect several kinds of Personal Identifiable Information (PII) from users in different ways. Types of Information Collected and retained are majorly of two types and they include but not limited to, when Users visit our site, contacts us, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked to fill out appropriately their name, email address and location. Also, users may, however, visit our Site anonymously and refuse to supply personally identifiable information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities. Personal identifiable information will be collected from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us.
A. Information collected automatically:
When you visit or use our service, we automatically collect and store information about your computer or mobile device and your activities. This information may include, but is not limited to:
· Your computer’s IP address;
· Technical information about your computer or mobile device (such as type of device, web browser or operating system);
· Your preferences and settings (time zone, language, etc.);
· Your mobile device’s unique ID number;
· Your mobile device’s geographic location (specific geographic location if you’ve enabled collection of that information, or general geographic location automatically);
· The number used by you to contact Toronto Restaurants’ advertisers by telephone;
· The URL of the last web page you visited before coming to our Properties;

· How long you visited our Properties and which services and features you used or clicked on; and
· For App users, the online or offline status of your App.
B. Information you choose to provide:
You may choose to create an account and provide us with information in order to use certain services or to take advantage of special offers. This information may include your name, email address, phone number, credit card information (including billing address), payment, tax, and/or banking information and demographic information (age, gender, etc.). You may provide this information directly to us or, for certain services, you may choose to register using your Facebook account in which case you would authorize us to access certain Facebook profile information including, but not limited to, your first name, last name, gender, birth date and email address. You may also choose to post content (such as ratings, reviews or comments) that may be shared with others, through our Properties or through your Facebook account. You may choose not to provide us with any personally identifiable information, such as by not registering for an account on our Properties and not connecting to our Properties with your Facebook account. However, if you don’t provide certain information, you will not be able to use some of the services we offer.
When you visit our Properties, we may place “cookies” on your computer to recognize you. We do this to store your preferences, collect statistical data and track your use of our Properties. Advertisers on our Properties also may also place cookies on your computer to track your activities across various sites so that they can display targeted ads. Some advertisers and game developers use “flash cookies” for ads and games that use Flash media technology.
Cookies are widely used, and most web browsers are configured initially to accept cookies automatically. If you prefer not to accept cookies, you may adjust and configure your browser settings accordingly. However, if you turn off cookies, or refuse to accept a request to place a cookie, some features and services on the Properties may not function properly. Also, while you may have set your browser to Do Not Track ("DNT"), Toronto Restaurants technology will not respond to DNT settings at this time.
Many advertisers are members of the Network Advertising Initiative. NAI members allow users to opt out of being tracked by cookies and other tagging methods. To opt out of tracking by NAI members, you may visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/ and click on the “Consumer Opt-out” button.
We may embed pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear GIFs) on web pages, ads, and emails. These tiny, invisible graphics are used to access cookies and track user activities (such as how many times a page is viewed). We may use pixel tags to measure the popularity of our features and services. Advertisers on our Properties also may use pixel tags to measure the number of ads displayed and their performance (such as how many people clicked on an ad) and for other purposes.
MOBILE DEVICE IDS
If you’re using our mobile or other software applications (“Applications”), we may use mobile device IDs (the unique identifier assigned to a device by the manufacturer), instead of cookies, to recognize you. We may do this to store your preferences and track your use of the Applications. Unlike cookies, device IDs cannot be deleted. Advertisers on our Properties may use device IDs to track your use of the Applications, track the number of ads displayed, measure ad performance and display ads that are more relevant to you. Analytics providers also may use device IDs to track information about usage of the Applications.
