What Information is Collected
We collect “information you provide to us,” which may include “Personally Identifiable Information.” We also collect “automatic information.” Personally Identifiable Information is information that tells us who you are, including your name, address, and email address. Personally Identifiable Information does not include aggregate information that, by itself, does not allow for the identification of an individual person. Automatic information is technical information automatically collected by our web server (which may be hosted by a third-party), such as the identity of your internet service provider, the type of browser that you use, and your computer’s IP address. Each time you visit the Site, our web server automatically recognizes (where possible) and collects this information.
