Personal Information. We may ask you to provide us with certain categories of information including: (1) personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address, company name, phone number, credit card number, and physical address (“Personal Information”).

Of course, you are free to visit our Sites without providing any Personal Information, but some parts of the Sites may not be available to you if choose note to provide this information.

We collect and store certain administrative and traffic information with each use of the Sites including: source IP address, time of access, date of access, web page(s) visited, type of browser used, access times and referring websites addresses. If we associate Anonymous Information with you as a specific person, we will treat it as Personal Information

A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Sites, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or other third party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Sites.
TECHNOLOGY USED ON OUR SITES

Web Beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a Web Beacon.
Embedded Script. We may use embedded script which is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Sites, such as the links on which you click. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Sites, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
