Non-Personal Information We Collect
"Non-Personal Information" is any information that does not reveal your specific identity, such as:
Coastal and Coastal’s third party service providers may collect Non-Personal Information in a variety of ways, including:
Because Non-Personal Information does not personally identify you, we may use and disclose Non-Personal Information for any purpose. In some instances, we may combine Non-Personal Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your geographical location).
If we combine any Non-Personal Information with Personal Information, e.g., when we combine information you provide upon registration with Non-Personal Information to provide you with targeted personalized marketing, the combined information will be treated by Coastal as Personal Information.
Your "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
An IP Address is identified and logged automatically in Coastal server log files whenever a user visits the Site, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many web sites.
Coastal uses IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, administering the Site and presenting content that is tailored to your country. We may also use and disclose IP Addresses for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information. Please note that we treat IP Addresses, server log files and related information as Non-Personal Information, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law.
This Privacy Statement does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site to which the Site or the App contains a link. The inclusion of a link on the Site or the App does not imply endorsement of the linked site by Coastal.

Your choices regarding Coastal’s use and disclosure of your Personal Information
We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt-out as described above, we will not be able to remove your Personal Information from the databases of unaffiliated third parties with which Coastal has already shared your Personal Information (i.e., to which we have already provided your Personal Information as of the date that we implement your opt-out request). Please also note that if you do opt-out of receiving marketing-related messages from Coastal, we may still send you important administrative messages, and you cannot opt-out from receiving administrative messages.
In your request, please make clear what information you would like to have changed, whether you would like to have your Personal Information suppressed from a Coastal database or otherwise let Coastal know what limitations you would like to put on Coastal use of your Personal Information. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.
We will retain your Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law.
