identifier automatically assigned to your

the type of Web browser and operating system
you use, the date and time you visit the Site,
the specific pages you visit on the Site,
and the address of the Web site you visited
before coming to this Site. We typically use
such passively collected information for a
variety of purposes, such as to administer
the Site, customize the Site to your preferences,

identifiable information, including, but not
limited to, selling, leasing, permitting access
to, or otherwise transferring it to our affiliates,
business partners, advertisers, dealers, and
