I. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
AUTHORIZED ACCESS. The Website will leverage the power of Facebook Connect to gain access to a limited amount of a user’s personal information. This information will then be combined with publically available data and presented in an original final result. No information will be collected or accessed without explicit permission from the user.
POLLING ANSWERS. When visiting the Website, you may be asked questions, the answers to which are collected on an aggregate basis (i.e., the answers will not be stored in a manner that identifies them with you personally).
IP ADDRESSES. In addition to information that you provide us voluntarily, the NMDP may collect aggregate information in the form of IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that "serve up" web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from the Website, our servers log your IP address and certain other information, such as browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data. We do not link this automatically-collected data to any data that is personally identifiable to you. Although your Website session may be logged, the automatically-collected data will not reveal to us any personally identifiable information about you.
COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING DEVICES. Cookies and other user tracking devices (e.g., locally-stored objects) may be stored in your computer's hard drive when you visit the Website. These tracking devices may also be used to help us speed up your future activities or to improve your experience by remembering the information that you have already provided to us. We do not use these devices to retrieve information from your computer that was not voluntarily provided by you. The use of these devices is an industry standard. Some of our business partners may also use these devices to provide us with anonymous data and information regarding the use of the Website. At your option, you may block or delete tracking devices from your hard drive. However, by disabling such tracking devices, you may not have access to the entire set of features of the Website.
