Aggregated Data. Dimension collects aggregate queries for internal reporting and also counts, tracks, and aggregates the visitor’s activity into Dimension’s analysis of general traffic-flow at the Website. To these ends, Dimension may merge information about you into aggregated group data.

Web Server Logs and IP Addresses. An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number that automatically identifies the computer/machine you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. Dimension may use IP addresses to conduct Website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Website.
