User Information and how we collect it. We may collect two kinds of information from you- public information and private information. Public information is information that is publicly known, or information that cannot identify you as an individual person. Private information is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number, which you give us for limited purposes. We may collect private information from you in a variety of ways when you fill out an online form or survey, create an account, or when you conduct an online transaction with us. In general, you may visit our Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself except as set forth in the following sentence. Like many websites, our server logs capture information regarding your operating system, browser software, IP (Internet Protocol) address, and the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our website, including date and time. We may use this information to improve the performance of our servers and to administer our Site.

How we use public information.

Once we have de-identified information, it is no longer private information and we may treat it like other public information.
