c. Log Files. Each time you visit a website, log file information is reported by the web browser on your computer. When you decide to use the service, our computers will automatically gather certain data that your browser sends when you visit an Internet page. These logs may have data such as the IP address associated with your use, the type of browser that is used, the language of use, number of clicks, pages viewed, domain names of visited websites, the order of pages visited, the date and time of visits and the amount of time that is spent on individual websites.
d. Clear Gifs. When you use our service, we may opt to use clear gifs. These are web beacons which are used to track the Internet usage patterns of users in an anonymous fashion. We may also rely on clear gifs in e-mails that are sent to clients. These clear gifs are used to see which e-mails are actually opened by the recipients. We use the information collected from clear gifs to make our service better, improve marketing campaigns and enable accurate recording.
Information that is collected through cookies, log file and clear gifs is for the most part non-personally identifiable information because the data is neither or collected or utilized in a way that the end user can be identified.
