- Aggregate information: In some cases, the Company also removes personal identifiers from data you provide to the Company and maintain it in aggregate form. The Company may combine this data with other information to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information (g. number of visitors, originating domain name of the Internet Service Provider), helpful to the Company in improving our products and services.
Automatically Collected Non-Personal Information
The Company and some third-party providers that work with the Company automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with the Company. on its sites and in some e-mails, we may send each other. Automatic technologies and services the Company uses may include, for example, Web server logs/IP addresses, cookies, Web beacons and third-party application and content tools.
Web Server Logs/IP Addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer or mobile whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. The Company collects IP addresses to conduct system administration and report aggregate information to affiliates, business partners and/or vendors to conduct site analysis and Media performance review.
Web Beacons. On certain Web pages or e-mails, The Company may utilize a common Internet technology called a “Web beacon” (also known as an “action tag” or “clear GIF technology”).
