We may collect non-personal information, such as a domain name and IP Address. The domain name and IP address reveals nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We may also collect information about the type of Internet browser you are using, operating system, what brought you to our Platform, as well as which of our Web pages you have accessed.
Additionally, if you communicate with us regarding our Platform or our services, we will collect any information that you provide to us in any such communication.
We may use third party analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, in order to better understand your use of our Platform and how we can improve them. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other usage information. For more information regarding how Google collects, uses, and shares your information please visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

We use the collected information primarily for our own internal purposes, such as providing, maintaining, evaluating, and improving our services, website, internet-based advertising, direct marketing, and customer support.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Nevertheless, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information. Moreover, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to us over networks that we do not control, including the Internet and wireless network.
If we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for «https» at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
