Like most standard website servers, we log IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet) and device identification in order to improve security, analyze trends and administer the Spacetime Applications. We may track your movement within the Spacetime Applications, the pages from which you were referred, access times and browser types. This information may include the browser you are using, the Internet address from which you linked to our Spacetime Applications, the operating system of your computer, the unique IP address of the computer or device identification from the mobile device that you used to access our Spacetime Applications and usage and browsing habits. We use this information in the aggregate to gauge the effectiveness, usage, and popularity of our Spacetime Applications, track information for statistical purposes, help diagnose and troubleshoot server malfunctions, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information. We may also use individual information we collect through web logs to send you targeted offers and other communications.

Web beacons allow us to count users that have visited a web page or opened an email that contains a web beacon and collect other types of aggregate information. Using this information, we are able to measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our Spacetime Applications. This allows us to learn what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which parts of our Spacetime Applications are the most interesting and what kind of offers our registered users like to see. Some of the web beacons that are in place on our Spacetime Applications are used only by us, and other web beacons are from our vendors who use this data to assist us in analyzing how our Spacetime Applications are used.
