2) Information collected automatically
Information regarding your website experience is collected indirectly via “cookies,” commonly used by most websites. These are small files your web browser stores on your hard drive to record preferences and to speed up performance of a website and adapt its contents to your preferences.
As you navigate our site, your browser requests data from the website server that delivers the website content. The server automatically logs certain non-personally identifiable information, such as time, date, browser type, domain name, IP address, and referring website URLs. We use this collected information to analyze usage patterns by our visitors and determine what the most visited parts of the sites are and what content is most important to our users. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Each cookie is assigned to a unique user and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
We also use “cookies” to optimize your site experience by remembering you and your preferences. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, your visit to our website may be limited.
We do employ web beacons, also known as clear gif technology or action tags, to assist in delivering the cookie on our site. This technology tells us how many visitors clicked on key elements (such as links or graphics) on a web page. We do not use this technology to access your personally identifiable information on digitalinfuzion.com; this tool is used to compile aggregated statistics about digitalinfuzion.com website usage. We may share aggregated site statistics with partner companies but do not allow other companies to place clear gifs on our sites.

We will merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to provide content that is more relevant. In some limited-entry sections of digitalinfuzion.com, with your approval, we will combine site-visitation data with your personal information in order to provide you with personalized content. If you decline permission, we will not provide you the personalized service and will not merge your personal information with site-visitation data.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and we prohibit them from using that information for any other purpose.
