You do not have an obligation to provide us with your information; however, by not providing your information, you may not be able to use our site or its services.
Information automatically or passively collected includes the following:
Device and usage information. We may automatically collect and analyse certain information about the computer or devices you use to access the site. This may include information such as IP addresses, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, TCP/IP address, browser types, browser language, operating system, mobile device carrier information, the state or country from which you accessed the site, referring and exit web pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages and content viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the site, the frequency of your use of the services, error logs, and other similar information. These things allow us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the site.
