Passive Information Collection.

As you navigate through this Site, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies, including but not limited to cookies, Internet tags or web beacons, and navigational data collection (e.g., log files, server logs, clickstream).

This Site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to Site visitors, customize this Site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve this Site for your use.

This Site uses cookies in order to manage user accounts and remarketing purposes.

Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this Site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the website you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. This Site may also collect anonymous information from other sources, such as cookies and Internet tags or web beacons.

A “cookie” is a small piece of data that can be sent by a web server to your computer, which then may be stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies allow this Site to recognize your computer while you are on this Site and help customize your online experience and make it more convenient for you. Cookies are also useful in allowing more efficient log-in for users, tracking transaction histories and preserving information between sessions. The information collected from cookies may also be used to improve the functionality of this Site.

The advertisers and/or other content providers that may appear on this Site may also use cookies that are not sent by this Site. Such ads or content may contain cookies that help track and target the interests of users of this Site in order to present “personalized” advertisements or other messages that the user might find interesting. We do not control the use of third party cookies and we are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

Most web browser applications (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox) have features that can notify you when you receive a cookie or prevent cookies from being sent. If you disable cookies, however, you may not be able to use certain personalized functions of this Site.

“Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. Tags may be placed both on online advertisements that bring people to this Site and on different pages of this Site. Such tags indicate how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted.

“Navigational data” (log files, server logs, and clickstream data) are used for system management, to improve the content of this Site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors.

We use Personally Identifiable Information in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which the information was originally collected. This may include use for a purpose that is reasonably related to the original purpose of collection.   Personally Identifiable Information that you provide may be combined with other actively collected information we have collected about you unless we specifically specify otherwise at the point of collection.

Personally Identifiable Information may also be used in order to meet certain legal requirements, such as complying with lawful orders to provide information.
