Collection of Information
Certain non-personal information about site visits is recorded by the standard operation of the Internet servers on which our websites are hosted. The non-personal information that we collect may include the type of operating system in use (e.g., Macintosh, Windows or Linux), the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer), and the number and frequency of visitors to our site.
You are always free to decline cookies, but in doing so you may not be able to use certain features on our website. The “help” segment of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to configure your browser to not accept new cookies, how to have the browser inform you when you receive a new cookie, and how to erase cookies from your hard drive.
We may also use web beacons to count page visits by our users, to access our cookies, and otherwise to improve your experience on our website.
In general, we only collect personal information (which may include, but is not necessarily limited to, first and last name, birth date, home or other physical address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card information, online account numbers, and password) when you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, new customers must provide us with complete contact and billing information in order to purchase a web hosting account, while only non-personal information is recorded when voting on our Design News section.
