  1. Anonymous Data Collection and Use

In order to maintain the highest standard of quality for our Website, we will use your IP address to diagnose server issues and administer the Website by identifying which areas are most heavily used. Additionally, this helps us customize content according to your preferences. Your IP address is a number assigned to Internet-connected computers – it’s essentially “traffic data” that can’t identify you directly but is useful for marketing and improving our services. Traffic data collection doesn’t follow or record any activities you may do on other websites. We may also share anonymous traffic data with business partners and advertisers in an aggregated form.

  1. Use of Cookies

We may use the standard “cookies” feature of popular web browsers. There is no personal information associated with these cookies, nor do we have any data-capturing mechanisms apart from them on our Website. You can always opt to disable cookies through your browser settings, however this could lower your experience on our Website and some features may not operate as expected.
