How We Collect and Use Other Information Independently from Your Use of the Site
Aside from any information you may actively disclose to us, there is other, less obvious, information, which we might obtain from you. We may use such information for internal purposes such as to improve the content of our websites and/or to customize the layout of our pages for each individual according to their preferences. In addition, we may track your account history regarding your participation on the websites. Our system also automatically collects information about the areas visitors frequent on our website. We use this aggregate information to understand how our members as a group use the services we provide so that we can improve our websites. Furthermore, we may share such aggregate statistical information with our partners, affiliates or other outside companies. Some examples of how we aggregate such information are as follows:
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you begin service with an Internet Service Provider. We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. Each time you log onto our site and each time you request one of our pages, our server logs your IP address. Although we may log your session with us, we will not normally link your IP address to anything that can enable us to identify you. However, we can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, users or others.
We query your computer automatically for information about the computer, operating system, or browser you are using such as the speed of your Internet connection or error messages you may have received. We may do so in order to fit our services to your individual needs and to diagnose problems you may be having with our website. We may gather information about your geographical location by determining where your computer is located. We do this in order to provide either localized service or to provide faster service by sending your server localized content.
We may require other information for tracking or verifying compliance with our policies, abiding by federal, state and local laws and for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes. In addition, from time to time, we may use your information for new, unanticipated uses, such as notification of new services, announcements and general communications.
Security is a top priority for us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your Information from your Internet connection to our secure servers, as well as in handling the Information offline by limiting access to authorized personnel. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure and we will not be held liable should a third party illegally obtain your personal information. While we have made a great effort to protect your Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Our policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond our control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
