Anonymous information is information that may be collected by web browsers and servers, but that cannot be traced to a specific personal identity (for example, browser type, language preference, referring site, or the date and time of visitor requests). Usablenet may use this anonymous information to collect and publish aggregate statistics, including statistics about the behavior of its website visitors. Usablenet may store this information on its servers or elsewhere for an indefinite period of time. Personal information is information that can be used to establish the identity of an individual user (for example, your name, address or phone number).
