Website Visitors. Like most website operators, PhantomLink collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PhantomLink’s visitors use its website. From time to time, PhantomLink may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. PhantomLink also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. PhantomLink only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
