- Information Collected through Your Use of the Website
When you visit this Website, you may provide us with two types of information: Personal Information that you knowingly and voluntarily choose to provide, and Anonymous Information (as defined below) that we automatically collect as you browse the Website.
(a) Your Personal Information
(b) Anonymous Information we receive from your usage of the Website
We collect certain information about you from your use of the Website (referred to herein as “Anonymous Information”). Our web servers may automatically collect and store the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet and the Internet protocol address of your computer. Additionally, we may collect information about the browser software you use; the type of operating system your computer uses; the date and time you access the Website; the website you visited just prior to visiting our Website; and a list of which Website pages you visit, the amount of time you spend on each Website page, and the order in which you view the Website pages. We use this Anonymous Information to improve the performance of the Website and make it more compatible with the technology used by our Website visitors. This Anonymous Information may be combined with Personal Information you have provided.
To help make the Website more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we may also use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to assign each visitor a unique, random number, a sort of anonymous user ID that resides in your computer. The cookie does not identify the Personal Information of the visitor; rather, it identifies the computer that a visitor uses to access the Website. A cookie cannot read data off of your hard drive. The cookie may store Website statistics, user preferences, information about your browser, and other identifying information. Most browsers automatically accept the cookies, but you can disable the acceptance of cookies at any time by changing the preferences in your browser. Certain Website pages and features may not function properly if you choose to disable the acceptance of cookies.
