LOG DATA AND PERSONAL NETWORK INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect technical and statistical data about your visit, such as your browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data, the pages you visit and any search terms you use ("Log Data").
