We collect personally identifiable information when you provide it to us, such as when you place an order or send us an e-mail. We may also receive information about you from other sources and add it to the information you have provided to us.
We collect anonymous information which refers to data that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. For example, we collect some information each time a visitor comes to our site so we can improve the overall quality of the visitor’s online experience.
We collect the visitor’s IP address (e.g., whether the user is logged on from ibm.com or aol.com), referral data (e.g., the Internet address of the last Web page visited by a user before clicking over to our site), and browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform).
We collect this user information for purposes of product monitoring, product improvement, and targeted advertising.
