Collection of your Personal Information
Certain visitors to our website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our e-mail newsletters or complete the Contact Us form on our website to provide name, company, e-mail, and phone number. We also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, preferences, and interests.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by us. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Avanti public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: We do not read any of your private on-line communications.
