Effective Date: December 19, 2019
"Personal information," as used in this policy, is information that specifically identifies a person, such as a person's name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. Personal information also includes information about a person's activities, such as information about his or her activity on our Website or our Services, and demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic area, and preferences, when any of this information is linked to personal information that identifies that person.
Personal information does not include "aggregate" or other non-personally identifiable information. Aggregate information is information that we collect about a group or category of products, services, or users that is not personally identifiable or from which individual identities are removed. We may use and disclose aggregate information, and other non-personally identifiable information, for various purposes.
When you visit any of our Websites or use our Services, some information is automatically collected, such as your computer's IP address, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Website or Service, "referring URL" (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the Website), the pages from which you navigate to and from the Website or Service, and the time you spend on the Website or the Service.
We collect this information passively using technologies such as standard server logs, cookies, and clear GIFs (also known as "Web beacons"). We use passively-collected information to administer, operate, and improve our Websites, our Services, and our other services and systems, and to provide services and content that are tailored to you. Some cookies are essential for the operation of our Website (“Essential Cookies”). These cookies enable services you have specifically asked for. These cookies remain on your device only until you close your browser after visiting our Website. Some cookies are used to collect anonymous information on the pages visited (“Performance Cookies”). For example, we might use Performance Cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. These cookies remain on your device only until you close your browser after visiting our website. Some cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience (Functionality Cookies”). These Functionality Cookies remain on your device for an extended period of time. When you revisit our Website we recognize Functionality Cookies and remember your preferences or can automatically log you on to the website.

Finally we may use “Behaviorally Targeting Advertising Cookies” which collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. Further general information about cookies and how they work is available at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Otherwise, we use information collected by passive means in non-personally identifiable form only.
