However, technical information, such as the date, time and length of your visit, browser type, IP address, mode of referral (e.g., by Google Search or an external link), may be used to analyze traffic patterns. Most web hosting companies offer these statistical analyses, or aggregate data, for website management. None of these data contain information which is personally identifiable. In any event, we will not share any information collected for website management with third parties whether by sale, gift, trade, or any other method.
