Passive data collection
As you navigate around the website, certain data can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information), using various technologies. We and our service providers may passively collect and use information in a variety of ways, including:
Your IP Address: An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is attributed to a computer by the internet service provider in order to grant access to the internet. Normally, an IP address is generally dynamic (it changes each time connection is made with the Internet) and not static. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating website usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the website.
Using internet labels: Internet labels, (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and provide certain information on the server such as the IP address and the web browser type of the visitor’s computer.
Using Navigation data: Navigation data (log files, server logs and click stream data) are used by the system administrator to improve the content of the website, for market research and in order to provide information to the visitor.
Through your browser: Certain information is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version, and Internet browser type and version. We may collect similar information, such as your device type and identifier, if you access the Site through a mobile device.
Device Information: We may collect information about your mobile device, such as a unique device identifier.
