We use tracking tools like cookies, pixels, ad tags, and clear gifs to automatically collect information about how you interact with our Sites, online content, advertisements, and emails. We collect information about what pages of the Site you visit, how long you spend on those pages, what content you view on the Site, and what search terms you enter, for instance. We automatically receive the referring advertisement or URL of the website from which you came to the Site, or the one to which you are directed when you leave our Site.

- Location Information. We may collect general location data, such as IP address.
