  1. What information of yours do WE collect?

Our goal is to become a favoured and trusted Internet destination by providing the information, services, and product offerings that are most relevant to you. To achieve this goal, WE must collect information so We can understand what makes you different from our many other unique users.

Information collected online is usually defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable.

Anonymous information refers to data that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. For example, WE collect some information each time a visitor comes to a Website page so We can improve the overall quality of the visitor’s online experience. This information may include referral data (eg, the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to the Website), usage data, and browser and platform type. WE also collect aggregate search terms from search services for internal reporting. WE collect this user information for purposes of product monitoring, product improvement, and targeted advertising. You do not have to register with WE before We can collect some of this anonymous information.

Personally identifiable information or personal information refers to data that may tell us specifically who you are, such as your computer’s IP address, name and postal address, which may be collected in addition to the anonymous data described above.

WE may collect information in the following ways:
