Navigational Information and Web Beacons: As you navigate through our Site, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, usage and browsing actions and patterns, and your “internet protocol” (IP) address. We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services. Pages of our Site and our e-mails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics. The information we collect automatically is statistical data and does not include Personal Information, but we may maintain it or associate it with Personal Information we collect in other ways.
