Because we value your privacy, we do not solicit this additional information from our users’ ISPs.
Aggregated General Information
Additionally, we may aggregate multiple users’ PII in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user; for example, by using PII of all users to calculate the percentage of users who have a particular telephone area code. Such aggregate information is considered NPII for purposes of this Policy. Please note that if we combine any NPII with PII, the combined information will be treated by us as PII as long as it is so combined.
