Aggregate Information

The methods of collecting aggregate information about your activities on our website (such as the pages you access most frequently or the search terms you enter), and occasional information volunteered by you (such as survey or registration information), are by tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and via page-tagging mutually. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web.
