How we use personal information.
All information on our Site is free to browse at your leisure without the need for you to provide us with any personally identifiable information. During a normal visit to our Sites, CannonDesign.com collects other, non-personally identifiable information from Site visitors. These items are not tracked on an individual basis that identifies the Site visitor, but rather are gathered and collected on an aggregate (or anonymous) basis that includes all Site visitors. Non-personal information may include information such as tracking the site pages that are visited, the amount of time spent on our Sites, clicks, page views, events, and zip code. Our primary goal in collecting aggregate information from you is to be able to perform site metrics that allow us to improve the functionality, design, etc. of the Sites. Collecting aggregate information will allow us to track page visits and peak Site usage time, as well as identify popular features, pages, links, etc.
If you visited a related mobile site or are directed to this Site via a QR Code that you scanned, we may collect additional non-personal information which may include the type/model of the mobile device viewing the Site and the mobile device’s service provider.
Anonymous information about your computer, such as your IP address (an identifying number assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Internet), the type or version of Internet browser you are using, and the type of computer operating system you are using may also be collected by us using cookies. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address and when you request a page from this Site, our servers log that IP address.
How information is used/possible information sharing.
Non-personally identifiable information that is collected may be used to compile aggregate and statistical data and to measure Site activity to allow us to update our Site to better meet user expectations.
CannonDesign.com may utilize non-personal data on an aggregate level for the purpose of performing analytics on the users’ experience while visiting the Sites.
