This may include anonymous “traffic data” or tracking information provided by the Platform’s host or similar provider of such information (i.e., Google Analytics) that does not personally identify you, but may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer. “Analytics” is the process of collecting, analyzing, and reporting aggregate data. This information may include which pages Users visit, how long Users may stay on a particular page, and where Users are located.  It may also provide information about what browser, network, or device is used to access our Platform. To learn more about Google Analytics and how to opt out, please visit www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html

In addition, when you access our Platform, we may also log your anonymous IP addresses, a unique identifier for your computer or other electronic device. This helps us diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Platform, or to display the content according to your preferences.

We also use cookies and web beacons.

A “cookie” is a small string of information that a website you may visit transfers to your computer for identification purposes. Cookies can be used to follow your activity on the Site and that information helps the Site to understand your preferences and improve your Site experience.

A “web beacon” is an invisible pixel-sized graphic image on a web page, web-based document or e-mail message. It helps us do things like view the URL of the page on which the beacon appears and the time the Platform, document or email in question is viewed. They can be used to confirm the receipt of, and response to, our emails, including those that you forward to friends and family; and they help deliver a more personalized online experience.
