For all visitors to the site, we collect more general information about traffic and activity, such as geographic area, device and software used, and referral source. This information does not identify the user personally. Regardless, we reserve the right to identify or track specific users for safety or security reasons, to investigate a violation of applicable law, or for other reasons we determine in good faith are appropriate.
