1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
1.2. Registration Information. To use certain features on our Site, we ask you to register. When you register, we collect personal information about you, which may include your name, organization name, mailing address, email address, a password, time of registration / most recent login and User name. We may also ask for some additional, optional information, but you're free to register without providing this optional information if you prefer. In addition, at various other points on our Site, we may ask you for personally identifying information, including when you: complete a survey or report a problem with our Site. We use this information to tailor our Site to your interests and to make it more useful to you, and to help improve our Site generally.
1.4. Tracking Information (IP Address). We may also collect information about your access time, the page or data requested, and your device configuration, including the type and version of browser software you use, the operating system that you're running, the resolution of your monitor and your Internet Protocol address ("IP address"). Your IP address is a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) connected to the Internet, which identifies your computer or device so that data (such as the web pages you view) can be accessed by you. Your IP address does not tell us who you are. Like the IP address, none of the other information described in this paragraph identifies you personally, although it may indicate your location. In the event of a Site malfunction, we may associate IP addresses with internal logs that contain account information for the limited purpose of correcting the malfunction. Otherwise, we only collect this information for purposes of aggregated reporting on Site activity that we, and our contractors, if any, may use. For example, we may want to know how long the average User spends on our Site, which pages or features get the most attention, and the like. The aggregated information helps to understand our audience. We may share such aggregated, de-personalized data with third parties.
Since the Site makes use of Google Analytics, that service may also be collecting IP addresses under their own terms. The “Help” function button on most browsers contains information on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies or to disable cookies entirely. However, if you don't accept cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of various features on our Site that are available to other Users.
