Usage information: We collect usage information about You including the webpages You visit, what You click on, the actions You perform, via tools such as Google Analytics or such other tools whenever You interact with our website and/ or service.

Device and browser data: We collect information from the device and application You use to access Our services. Device data mainly means your IP address, operating system version, device type, system and performance information, and browser type.

Log Data: Like most websites today, Our web servers store log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers. The log files contain data about the nature of each access, including originating IP addresses, internet service providers, the resources viewed on Our site (such as the HTML pages, images, etc.), operating system versions, device type and timestamps.

Referral information: If You arrive at an Entropik Technologies website from an external source (such as a link on another website or in an email), We record information about the source that referred you to Us.

Information from third parties and integration partners: We collect your Personally Identifiable Information or data from third parties if You give permission to those third parties to share your information with Us or where You have made that information publicly available online.

Information Collected during the use of Our services

If you participate in an EEG and/ or eye tracking and/ or facial coding and/ or survey study conducted by Entropik Technologies, You may be required to provide access to the webcam and consent to your face video being recorded. Explicit consent must be provided by You to enable the webcam to collect video(s) of your face. Consent may be retracted at any time during the session by cancelling the session. Face videos are analyzed by our computers to calculate eye-gaze tracks (a series of x,y coordinates) and facial coding algorithms to determine emotion. The videos are not associated with you except via the information you enter to participate in the study (such as answers to survey questions). By participating in the AffectLab EEG study, You consent to Our collection of your raw brainwaves using AffectLab or its associated partner(s) headsets to determine cognitive and affective parameters.

Facial videos are permanently deleted within 30 days once You provide Us a written request to delete the video(s) post the survey. Facial images will not be associated to any Personally Identifiable Information and will be stored only for improving the accuracy of the AffectLab or Entropik Technologies’ models.
