"Personally identifiable information" is information such as your name, birth date, e-mail address, mailing address or some other details that can potentially be used to uniquely identify you as an individual.
Anonymous Information is not personally identifiable information. Anonymous information is information about how you use or iterate with our site (such as sections or pages visited and search keywords used when searching). Anonymous information may include the domain names and/or I.P. addresses (as explained in greater detail below) of browsers that visit our site, time of day the site was visited, and other non-personally identifiable information. Anonymous information is information that is not directly linked to a specific individual but helps to characterize the usage pattern and improve our services.
