“Nonpersonally Identifiable Information” is anonymous information about Users that does not include Users’ names or contact information. Examples of such aggregated data would be IP addresses, browser types, and access times. The Foundation may use this information to customise the Foundation’s website for Users and may not include or refer to Personal Information, such as Users’ email addresses, when using this type of data.
(C) Aggregated Information
“Aggregated Information” refers to information the Foundation gathers by aggregating Nonpersonally Identifiable Information to provide summaries of use of the Foundation’s website. The Foundation uses Aggregated Information to show usage patterns and to do such things as negotiate with vendors of Internet services. Such Information is not linked to Users’ Personal Information.
Section 2. Personal information the Foundation collects
