DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION, ITS GATHERING, AND USE
The term "Non-Personally-Identifying Information" is defined as information that, without the help of any additional information, cannot be directly associated with the identification of a specific person. "Personally-Identifying Information," conversely, is information such as a name or email address that can be directly associated with the identification of a specific person. Similar to mainstream website operating procedures, Findparking.com also gathers the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available for website providers to access. This information includes the user's Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system details, browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views before arriving at, while browsing through, and immediately after leaving the Website. Findparking.com collates, assimilates, and analyzes this Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from the users of the Website to better aid Findparking.com in understanding how the Website is being used. This helps identify patterns and trends in usage, thereby enabling better design choices that improve users' experiences both in terms of ease of use and content. Findparking.com may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website. The Website may also periodically collect and obtain both Personally-Identifying Information and Non-Personally-Identifying Information about you from other Findparking.com affiliated businesses, business partners, contractors, and third parties to add it to our account information or other information we have otherwise collected. Instances of information that we receive may include users' purchase history, additional demographic data, and updated address information.
