Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information
automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP
addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system,
date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to
analyze trends, administer the Services, track users’ movements around
the Services, gather demographic information about our user base as a
whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example,
some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the

we do not link this automatically-collected data to personal

us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us
whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only
messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information
to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user. We do not tie the
information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ personal information.

event our Application(s) crash on your mobile device, we will receive
information about your mobile device model software version and device
carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve
the performance of our Application(s). This information is sent to us
as aggregated information and is not traceable to any individual and
cannot be used to identify an individual.
