NON-PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION
The Site may request non-personally identifiable information, such as annual income, buying preferences, or age, also known as demographic and profile data, though this information is optional. The Site may use this data to improve the Site and/or tailor the User’s experience at this Site.
The Site may collect User’s usage information, for example, information about the User’s computer and internet connection, including the computer’s IP address, the type and version of browser and operating system used, the User’s internet domain and, if the User arrived at this Site via a link from another website, the URL of the linking page. The collection of this information allows this Site to, among other things, prepare for traffic load demands and to efficiently deliver content to the User.
