This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, country of origin, operating system/platform, display information, and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the website and service, to maintain quality of the service provided, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Hardware Everywhere website.
This information is regularly tabulated into a summary report by a commercial statistical tracker. The original data is deleted once our report is generated. We also use this information to compile data about what pages are used and how long they are viewed and what page you go to next; this data is not associated with an IP address except to see what country you’re visiting from. Other tracking software we have installed is used to monitor your usage of our server to make sure you’re legally allowed to do so, and your IP address is associated with this — our competitors are not allowed to use this site, and we are actively looking for you. Why do we get want information? For instance, we like to know we had 400 Macintosh users and most them used Firefox. It helps us make sure our pages work well for all of our users. We can see what pages are popular and which ones might need work.
