COLLECTION OF DATA
You can browse the IBID2SAVE.com website and our
related sites without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. As a normal course of business, IBID2SAVE collects certain aggregate non-personally identifiable
information when anyone visits the IBID2SAVE.com website or any of its
related sites to browse, read or download information. The types of non-personally identifiable information we may collect and store includes the standard computer and connection
information that your browser sends to every website such as IP address,
browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses; statistics on page views; traffic to and from the IBID2SAVE website and its related sites, advertisement data;
and standard web log information and information from other companies, such
as demographic and navigation data. The non-personally identifiable information IBID2SAVE collects and stores does not reveal the specific identity of the individual user, and it
does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. Furthermore, we generally do
not link any non-personally identifiable information to anything that will allow us to identify specific users unless it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or
terms of service or to protect our service, site, users or others.
The purpose of collecting such non-personally identifiable
information is that it tells IBID2SAVE such things as how many users have visited the sites and which pages are commonly accessed its visitors. By collecting this information, IBID2SAVE can more

better experience for our visitors.

email campaigns we send. We also collect this information through the use of
technologies such as "cookies", "web beacons" and "IP addresses", which are discussed in greater detail below. We collect this information in order to determine what types of
advertisements are of interest to list members and to enhance the IBID2SAVE
experience. We may also group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the IBID2SAVE.com website to our existing or potential users or other
third parties, or in response to a government request. However, please be
assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you, other users or any other visitors to the IBID2SAVE.com website.

information, you are not anonymous to us. In order to actively participate on the IBID2SAVE.com website or its related sites, you are required to provide us with certain Personally Identifiable Information
