When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and – in rare cases – some of the cookies that are placed on your device.
Furthermore, as you use the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you use the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected anonymous information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
- “Log files” track actions happening on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

How do we use your personal information?
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more often to enhance and grow our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our visitors browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our content, marketing, and advertising campaigns).
