Non-Personal and Aggregated Information
The Web server that helps us run this Website automatically collects the IP (which stands for Internet Protocol) address of the computers that access our Website. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you access the Internet. It is not truly personally identifiable information because many different individuals can access the Internet via the same computer. We use this information in aggregate form to understand how our site is being used and how we can better serve visitors. When we pool information regarding the use of the Website and remove personally identifying information, we refer to the data as "aggregate" or "non-personal" information. We use non-personal information to help us make our websites more useful to visitors and for other business purposes. For example, we may offer additional articles on popular topics, and measure levels of Web site traffic. We may prepare reports and other materials using non-personal information. Because non-personal information does not tell anyone who you are we may share and use non-personal information without restriction so long as such use is permitted by law.
