When you visit our site, we automatically collect certain information that we then aggregate so that it is not linked to a single identifiable individual. This information provides us with statistics, such as how many users visit the site and which pages were accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor this site to our visitors. We collect this information either through "log files," "Cookie" technology, or "web beacons," as explained below. Many of these technologies use IP addresses.
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer by its Internet service provider whenever the computer is connected to the Internet. Web servers -- the computers that deliver web pages -- automatically identify a computer by its IP address, and when a page is requested from a website, its servers log the IP address of the computer requesting the page.
