COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Non-personal information is data that cannot be used to uniquely identify a specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. We may combine personal and non-personal information for certain purposes; this data will then be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined. Conversely, aggregated information, i.e. data that might have originated from personal information, but that has been processed in such a way as to not allow personal identification, is treated as non-personal information. Here are some examples of non-personal information that we collect - either by ourselves or through the use of third-party services:
- When you visit our website, we keep logs of your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and language, referring and exit pages, operating system, and date/time stamp.
- When our Software crashes, we collect and store crash reports to help us analyze the crash and determine the source of the problem.
- Our Software periodically checks our servers for important updates or notices; in this case, we also log the IP address, device type, language, operating system and the date and time of the request.

PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
