This allows Eminent to collect information such as the address of the page you are visiting, the address of the referring page you previously visited, what browser or mobile device you are using, and your display settings. Eminent and its partners use web beacons, for example, to find out if advertising on Eminent websites and other websites that contain Eminent ads is effective, or if certain videos on Eminent websites or social media accounts are being viewed.

Information obtained from third parties
If you provide personal information about others or if others provide us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.
We strive to maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the information collected by Eminent websites and Eminent Products. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security; any transmission is at your own risk.
It is important to note that if you use a computer or device that can be accessed by others, other people may be able to access unencrypted Personal Information.
If you do not want your information to be available to others, exercise caution when using public computers or devices or when using any computer or device to which users unauthorized by you may have access.
We recommend that you take every precaution in protecting your Personal Information when you are on the Internet. For example, change your passwords often, use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols when creating passwords, and make sure you use a secure browser. You should also be aware that names that you give your Wi-Fi-enabled devices, home networks and services (also known as "friendly names") may be detectable by others outside your home, so you should not use Personal Information as part of your friendly names.
Updates and upgrades
Eminent Products may be updated or upgraded from time to time to provide additional features, address technical issues, and generally make your user experience better. Some Eminent Products may include an auto-update feature, which gives us the ability to make updates automatically. You can change auto-update options by changing your settings within the Eminent Product account information where applicable. In very limited cases, updates may still be automatically applied, regardless of the auto-update setting. For example, we may provide an automatic update that prevents or fixes a security vulnerability or breach to your network.
