We collect from Users of our Site and/or Services two types of data and information:
4.1. Non-Personal Information
The first type is non-identifiable and anonymous information. Non-personal Information, which is being gathered, consists of technical information and behavioral information that does not pertain to a specific individual (“Non-Personal Information”).
You may access, browse and use the Site without disclosing personal information, although, like most websites and online services, we passively collect certain Non-Personal Information from your devices when you access, use and browse the Site, including: (i) technical information such as the type and version of your device and its operating system, the type of browser, screen resolution, device browser and keyboard language, Wi-Fi connectivity and the type and name of your device and/or browser, etc.; and (ii) behavioral information which may include the User’s click-stream on the Site, the activities of the User on the Site and additional information of a similar nature (collectively, “Technical and Behavioral Information”). We may also use third-party service providers such as Google Analytics, to obtain detailed analytics on the device and the User’s behavior on the Site.
