We may collect both “Personal Information” and “Anonymous Information” about our users. Personal Information is information that can be used to contact or identify you, such as your full name and email address, as well as information that is linked to such information.

It includes passively collected information about your activities on the Website, such as usage data, to the extent that information is not linked to your Personal Information. Website visitors can browse and access most of the Website without disclosing Personal Information, although, like most website providers, we may passively collect certain information from your devices, such as your IP address and browser information.
