How We Use Your Non-Personal Information
Non-personal data is data that does not permit direct association with any single, specific individual. Non-personal data includes, but is not limited to, language, location, occupation, zip code and area code. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non- personal information for any purpose, including providing aggregate non-personal information to third parties.

In the event that we combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information is treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
How We Use “Cookies” and Other Technologies
We may use “cookies” (small data files that assign you a unique identifier) and other technologies, such as pixel tags and web beacons, to help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our website people have visited and to measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. This information is non-personal information; however, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. You may use your browser’s preferences to disable cookies, but understand that by doing so, you may cause certain aspects of the website to operate incorrectly or otherwise limit the functionality of the website.
