Information Collection

We collect data to operate effectively and provide you with the best experiences with our website. The collection occurs while you are using the Site.

We get this data in two ways:

  2. Some of the data (usage data) is collected automatically. This data is mostly non-personal. Usage data is collected by recording how you interact with our website.

Let us clarify the exact meaning of “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

“Personal Data” or “Personally Identifiable Information/Data” (PII) is any data that could potentially identify a specific individual. Any information that can be used to distinguish one person from another can be considered as PII.

“Non-Personally Identifiable Information/Data”, also known as “de-identified” (de-identified data is information that does not actually identify an individual) or “anonymized”, is any information that may correspond to a specific person, but is not sufficient to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains. This type of information is frequently used for research, statistical, or aggregation purposes.
