Like most website operators, Core xRM 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. Core xRM’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Core xRM’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Core xRM may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Core xRM also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Core xRM only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
