Your Internet browser includes a feature known as “cookies”, which stores small amounts of data on your computer or mobile device about your visit to the Website. Your browser’s cookie function need not be activated in order to visit the Website, although active participation in certain areas of the Website and/or the Service may require You to activate cookies. Cookies alone tell us nothing about who You are unless You specifically provide us with personally identifiable information, in which case we may use the information to enhance the Service in the ways described below. (Note: by adjusting the settings in your browser, You may elect to prevent the collection of cookies.) OTC also uses technologies, including electronic images known as “Web bugs”—sometimes also referred to as “transparent GIFs”, “clear GIFs”, or “beacons”—that allow us to track general User online traffic patterns. [NOTE TO DRAFT: CLIENT TO CONFIRM USE OF WEB BUGS] We also automatically receive and record information from our servers and from your browser, including your IP address, the time of your visit to pages on the Website, and information about pages You visited. Unless You have registered for a specific portion of the Service, the information we gather through the use of tracking technologies cannot be matched with any of your personally identifiable information.
