"Personally Identifiable Information" means information that can be used to uniquely identify you, such as your name, address, username, email address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose information in a form that does not peonally identify you ("Non-Identifying Information") for any purpose. Non-Identifying Information can include certain Personally Identifiable Information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We and/or our third party service providers obtain Non-Identifying Information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your Personally Identifiable Information. We and/or our third party service providers also automatically collect certain Non-Identifying Information from you when you access our website. Certain Non-Identifying Information about you would be considered a part of your Personally Identifiable Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying Information. We may combine your Personally Identifiable Information with Non-Identifying Information to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of our website, and to analyze and understand how our website is used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically.
