"Personal Information" is information about you that is personally identifiable to you like your name, address, email address, or phone number.
"Anonymous Information" means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons. Anonymous Information, such as information regarding your hardware IDs and device type, your carrier, your carrier user ID, basic usage statistics about your device, your location and your use of the Website, does not by itself identify you to the Company, though such information may be unique or consist of or contain information that you consider personal.

An "Internet protocol address" or "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. We may track IP Addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our web page flow.
"Cookies" are small pieces of information that a Website sends to your computer's hard drive while you are viewing a Website.
