3. Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information

A. Users of the Website Generally

"Non-Personally-Identifying Information" is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity.

"Personally-Identifying Information," by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person or entity.

(i) Web Browsers

Like most website operators, GST gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website.

(ii) Use of Non-Personally-Identifying Information

GST analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help GST better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, GST is able to better design the Website to improve users' experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, Maguire’s may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.

B. Web Cookies

A "Web Cookie" is a string of information that a website stores on a user's computer, and that the user's browser provides to the website each time the user submits a query to the site. GST uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help GST improve users' experiences and to help GST understand how the Website is being used.

As with other Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website, GST analyzes and discloses in aggregate form information gathered using Web Cookies, so as to help GST, its partners and others better understand how the Website is being used. GST does not attempt to link information gathered using Web Cookies to Personally-Identifying Information.

GST USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD SET THEIR BROWSERS TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. WEBSITE USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
