Non-Personal Identification Information
We collect non-personal identification information through the use of, without limitation, the following types of methodology:
Cookie Technology: A "cookie" is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system.
IP Address Tracking: An "IP address" is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages
from our Sites, our servers log your IP address.
Web Beacons: A "Web beacon, " or "clear gif, " is a small graphic image on a webpage or web-based document that a website can use
to determine information about a user.
Non-personal identification information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our Sites such as the
operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information. Our systems may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit
and search terms you utilize on our Sites and about the links you may select from within our Sites to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.
We use such information for our business purposes, and, in particular, to administer the Sites, better manage advertising on the Sites, and, in the aggregate, to understand
how our users as a group use the services, features and other resources provided on our Sites. This way we know which areas of our Sites are favorites of our users, which
areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our Sites.
We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners, suppliers and other third parties, but we will not share any individual names, personal navigational
or other personal information. For example, we may use a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit our Sites. We may share demographic and preference
information with this company to allow them to display appropriate advertisements for you.
We use a proprietary advertising server to display ads on our Sites. In addition, advertisers may elect to use third-party advertising companies to serve ads onto our Sites.
Some of our advertisers may display ads on our Sites that may use cookie technology or Web beacons to (i) identify non-personal information about our users (such as connection
speed, browser and country of origin) and (ii) track user behavior within our Sites. Advertisers generally use such information to customize the display of ads within our Sites.
We will not permit such advertisers to collect any personal information from our users within our Sites, however, you may choose to voluntarily provide the advertisers with your
personal information. We do not have access to these cookies or any information that they may contain.
Further, from time-to-time we contract with a third party web analytics provider to help manage and optimize our Sites. We use this service to help us measure the effectiveness
of our advertising and how visitors use our Sites. To do this, we use Web beacons and cookie technology on the Sites. The type of information we collect includes such information
as the number of hits a webpage receives, type of browser used, and number of times a visitor makes a purchase from a particular promotion. By supplementing our records, this
information helps us learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which products and services most interest our users, and what kinds of offers our users like
to see. Although this third-party provider logs the information coming from our Sites on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used.
Links To Other Sites
Users will find advertising or other content on our Sites that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties.
We do not control the content or links that appear on those sites. In addition, those sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. Those sites
and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party
sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.
Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. We have taken reasonable measures to secure both your information and our physical premises. We exercise reasonable
care in providing safe transmission of your information from your computer to our servers (unless sent by a means outside of our control, such as email). However, we cannot guarantee
that our measures will completely bar unauthorized access to your information, and by using the Sites you assume this risk.
We are committed to protecting your security and have explained in detail the steps taken in our Security Policy.
