This Policy may change from time to time. We will post the most current version of this Policy on our Site with the effective date.
HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION:
When You Provide Us Information
Automatically Collected Information
MyPath collects aggregate queries for internal reporting and may also count, track, and/or aggregate visitors’ activity into MyPath’s analysis of general traffic-flow at the Site. To these ends, MyPath may merge information about you into aggregated group data. In some cases, MyPath may remove personal identifiers from Personal Information and maintain it in aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Such anonymous, group data may be shared on an aggregated basis with MyPath’s affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors; if it does so, MyPath will not disclose your individual identity.
- 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. MyPath may use IP addresses to conduct Site analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Site.
- Cookies and Web Beacons.

MyPath recognizes that certain User Information of a key demographic nature (e.g., race, age, gender, national origin, income), while not Personal Information, is still of a sensitive nature to users. As a general matter, MyPath does not collect such information about you through the Site. However, in recognition of the sensitive nature of such information, in the event MyPath comes into possession of such information, whether through your voluntary submission of such information in response to a special feature on the Site or by receiving such information from any of our business partners, such information shall, when coupled with any of your Personal Information, itself be deemed to be Personal Information and treated MyPath as such.
