The website may also use other methods to track and analyze traffic patterns, e.g. the frequency with which users visit various parts of the website. These methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We may also use these methods in e-mails that we send to our users, to determine whether such users have opened those e-mails or clicked on links in those e-mails. We may collect the information from use of these methods in a form that is personally identifiable.
How Personally Identifiable Information is Used: We will not disclose any personal information about you to anyone, except as permitted or required by law, or as necessary to provide services to you. We may disclose all of the information we collect, as described above, to certain non-affiliated third parties such as, but not limited to, attorneys, accountants, auditors and persons or entities that are assessing our compliance with industry standards. We enter into contractual agreements with all non-affiliated third parties that prohibit such third parties from disclosing or using the information other than to carry out the purposes for which we disclose the information.
We may also store your personally identifiable information and use it for marketing, research and other business purposes, and we may associate your personally identifiable information with other information we collect about you, such as details about your usage patterns and interests, in each case to the extent permitted by law.
How Non-Personally Identifiable Information is Used: Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data.
