Types of Information We Collect
Non-Personal (Anonymous) Information
Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not directly associated with a specific personal identity. We may collect and analyze non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the website.
We may gather aggregate information, which refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the websites you visited just before and just after our site), pages viewed, time spent at our website, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. For example, when you request a page from our website, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns and for purposes of system administration.
Every time you request or download a file from the website, we may store data about these events and your IP address in a log file. We may use this information to analyze trends, administer the website, track how users move throughout the website, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use or for other business purposes.
Personal information is information that is associated with your name or personal identity.
We may collect and store information that you authorize us to obtain, such as your Facebook or Google accounts. This information may include your full name, email address, gender, IP address, browser information, usernames, and demographic information.
On some of our web pages, you may be able to comment on articles, provide website feedback, register for membership, submit directory edits, review companies, upload photographs, exchange messages with other users, and participate in various other activities. This data is collected and stored indefinitely. Personal information that you type and submit through forms is at your discretion, and may be publicly available.
When you submit directory edits or leave comments on the site we collect the data that you enter, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website may be able to download and extract any location data from images on the website.
