browser and device characteristics – is collected automatically
when you visit our Sites.
We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use

specific identity (like your name or contact information) but may
include device and usage information, such as your IP address,
browser and device characteristics, operating system, language
preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location,

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
