Aggregate information refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the web sites you visited just before and just after our site), the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Internet. When you request a page from one of our sites, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers and partners, and for purposes of system administration. We use this aggregated information to determine consumer trends and needs, which allows both Purible and our partners to advertise more effectively, and allows you to receive advertisements that are less duplicative and more relevant to your interests.
Purible uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We do not link your IP address to other personally identifiable information about you.
