5. Use of Computer Tracking Technologies.
(a) No Tracking of Personal Information. HFR's Web Site(s) are not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Through web site access logs HFR does collect clickstream data and HTTP protocol elements, which generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user analysis and business decision making, all of which provides better services to the public. The statistics garnered, which contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information, may also be provided to third parties.
(c) Use of Web Beacon Technologies. HFR may also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor its Web site(s) to provide better customer service. If these technologies are in use, when a visitor accesses these pages of the Web site, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by HFR or by its suppliers. Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If customer does not want cookie information to be associated with customer's visits to these pages, customer can set its browser to turn off cookies; however, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.
(d) Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. HFR may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the HFR Web site(s) in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on HFR Web site(s); Web site and system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as "clickstream data." HFR or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.
(e) Collection of Personal Information. HFR collects personal identifying information from customer during a transaction. HFR may extract some personally identifying information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help HFR understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
