COOKIES, WEB ANALYTICS AND IP TRACKING
Our web servers collect general data pertaining to each website user, including their IP address, domain name, referring web page and the length of time spent and the pages accessed while visiting this website. Some of this information may be used to infer your geographic location. Web usage information is collected to help us manage and administer our website, improve the content of our website, and customize and improve the website user experience. Web analytic information is gathered using the following methods: (1) cookies, (2) conversion tracking, and (3) general detection and use of your internet protocol (IP) address or domain name.
Search engines offer a feature called “conversion tracking” which is a way to track clicks to sales from either search results or ads on search engines. Using either web beacons or visible images, depending upon the search engine, the search engine notes and saves information in a cookie with non-personal information such as time of day, browser type, browser language, and IP address with each query. Information is gathered in the aggregate, without unique personal data. Conversion tracking allows the search engine company and Misix to track clicks to sales, including the number of clicks (“visits”) it takes before a purchase is made and permits us to measure the effectiveness of our search engine participation.
