This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users’ movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are linked to registration information for the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of voting, sweepstakes, contests and other events conducted on the Website.
