Col­lec­tion of Oth­er Information 

Oth­er Infor­ma­tion” is any infor­ma­tion that does not reveal your spe­cif­ic iden­ti­ty or does not direct­ly relate to an iden­ti­fi­able indi­vid­ual. We and our ser­vice providers may col­lect Oth­er Infor­ma­tion through the Ser­vices in a vari­ety of ways, including: 

  • Your brows­er or device.
    • Cer­tain infor­ma­tion is col­lect­ed by most browsers or auto­mat­i­cal­ly through your device, such as your Media Access Con­trol (MAC) address, com­put­er type (Win­dows or Mac), screen res­o­lu­tion, oper­at­ing sys­tem name and ver­sion, device man­u­fac­tur­er and mod­el, lan­guage, and Inter­net brows­er type and ver­sion. We use this infor­ma­tion to ensure that the Ser­vices func­tion properly.
  • Cook­ies.
    • Cook­ies are pieces of infor­ma­tion stored direct­ly on the com­put­er that you are using. Cook­ies allow us to col­lect infor­ma­tion such as brows­er type, time spent on the Ser­vices, pages vis­it­ed, lan­guage pref­er­ences, and oth­er traf­fic data. We and our ser­vice providers use the infor­ma­tion for secu­ri­ty pur­pos­es, to facil­i­tate nav­i­ga­tion, to dis­play infor­ma­tion more effec­tive­ly, and to per­son­al­ize your expe­ri­ence.

We do not cur­rent­ly respond to brows­er do-not-track sig­nals. If you do not want infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed through the use of cook­ies, most browsers allow you to auto­mat­i­cal­ly decline cook­ies or be giv­en the choice of declin­ing or accept­ing a par­tic­u­lar cook­ie (or cook­ies) from a par­tic­u­lar web­site. You may also wish to refer to http://​www​.allabout​cook​ies​.org/​m​a​n​a​g​e​-​c​o​o​k​i​e​s​/​i​n​d​e​x​.html. If, how­ev­er, you do not accept cook­ies, you may expe­ri­ence some incon­ve­nience in your use of the Services.
  • Ana­lyt­ics and Pix­el tags
    • Ana­lyt­ics. We use Google Ana­lyt­ics, which uses cook­ies and sim­i­lar tech­nolo­gies to col­lect and ana­lyze infor­ma­tion about use of the Ser­vices and report on activ­i­ties and trends.

We use IP Address­es for pur­pos­es such as cal­cu­lat­ing usage lev­els, diag­nos­ing serv­er prob­lems, and admin­is­ter­ing the Ser­vices.
