THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect non-personally identifiable information when you visit our webpages, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer) , your I.P. Address and the address of the website you were referred from.
We may also request that you participate occasionally in an anonymous survey, requesting just your sex, age, household income, and other information which is used to put together demographics for our advertisers. The survey will not be able to personally identify you, and simply helps us work with advertisers to design a campaign that will fit the needs of those who visit this site.
There may be other occasions where you can submit information about other people. For example, you might submit a friend’s name and email address to send a story, or invite them to our site. We collect this information but only in the event we need to step in to prevent abuse or other misuse of that e-mail tool (e.g. someone emailing that story 300 times to one person).
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION
The non-personal information we collect is used to monitor traffic and also allows us to improve our site to better fit the needs of visitors.
