Anonymous Data Collected Through GI Dynamics.com
In addition to the information you provide when you use our Website, GI Dynamics uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our Website. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our Website, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which Web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our site (for example, if they connected to gidynamics.com by clicking on one of our banner ads from another website). This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our Website. GI Dynamics and our affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our Websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
In order to collect the anonymous data described in the preceding paragraph, GI Dynamics may use temporary “cookies” that collect the first level domain name of the user (for example, if your email address is “email@example.com,” the cookie collects the “xyz.com” portion of your email address) and the date and time you accessed this Website. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to discover the identity of the user. A cookie is a small piece of information which is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies keep track of non-personal information such as the URL that you came from and go to next, your navigation through the Website (for example, the advertisements that you click on), the browser and operating system that you use, and your IP address. Cookies do not damage your computer. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to decide if you want to accept it or not. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. At the present time, GI Dynamics only uses temporary or “session” cookies. These cookies expire when your browser window is closed.
