What Information is collected?

Personally identifiable information (“PII”): Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your real name, address, phone number, e-mail address and Users’ Internet Protocol (“IP”) address). If you are required to register, we may ask you to provide us with certain PII at time of registration. Providing us with information about yourself is voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in many of the Website's features.

Non-personally identifiable information (“NPII”): When your computer contacts our web servers (for example, when you visit this Website, view an HTML e-mail, or download an interactive desktop from the website), our web servers automatically collect website usage information and your IP address which is automatically logged by our web server. IP addresses are used to observe users’ interest in this website (e.g. number of visits). Website usage information is information that describes how our visitors use and navigate our Website. It can include the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays, browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our website, and IP addresses (see below for more information on IP addresses). We also may determine the applicable technology available in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page, e-mail or similar service.
