The Website may collect and use clickstream data as a form of aggregate information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Website, how visitors navigate throughout the Website, and how we may tailor our Website to better meet the needs of visitors. This information often will be used to improve our Website and our Services. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be de-identified and aggregated.
