Our Commitment to Privacy
I. Information Identified
Information collected online can generally be categorized as anonymous (aggregate) information or personally identifiable information. Anonymous information is information that cannot be connected to the identity of a specific individual (for example, a users’ Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser being used, usage details, etc., as long as these fields do not link to a user’s personal information). Personally identifiable information, on the other hand, is information that specifically identifies a particular user (for example, a user’s name, address, email address, telephone number, business name and contact information, financial information, including credit card account numbers and billing information, communication preferences, order and subscription information, etc.).
