The majority of information we collect is anonymous user site statistics via website analytics software. This tells us (for example) how many visitors come to the site and which parts of the site are visited most frequently. We also receive anonymous data from our marketing partners regarding which ads were clicked and what promotions are popular.
How Collected Information is Used
The collected information is utilized to better understand your interests and provide improved service and a better website experience. For example, the anonymous website data helps us develop more useful website content and deliver more relevant marketing offers.
Meanwhile, the personally identifiable information (such as an e-mail address) allows us to deliver on your request to receive the Success Tips newsletter.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure of this information, we have chosen established companies such as Google and ICDSoft for website measurement and web hosting services. All of these companies make significant investments to protect our own information, as well as that of our visitors.
