We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

 

Cookies

 “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

 

The ATS website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

 

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ATS pages, or register with the ATS site or services, a cookie helps ATS to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same ATS website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the ATS features that you customized.

 

You may choose to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ATS services or websites you visit. You may also opt to delete your browsing cookies at any time on your own device.

 

Log files

 “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

 

Web beacons

 “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

ATS secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. http://atinysparrow.com is powered by Wix and uses automatic SSL and data in transit encryption uses HTTPS, TLS 1.2+ and automatic SSL, while data at rest uses AES-256—the strongest encryption standard commercially available.
