We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you and to track access and use of the CBA Services across the devices that you use to access the CBA Services.
We have hired third parties to provide us information, reports and analysis about the usage, browsing patterns of our users. They may independently record the type of device and operating system you are using and general location information.
Some of the services included in the CBA Services, including services to realize the event booking process, are delivered or served by third-party companies, which may collect information about your use of the CBA Services.
These companies may place or recognize cookies, Web beacons or other technology to track certain non-personal information about our website users.
