5. Use of Computer Tracking Technologies

(a) Tracking of Personal Information. The Site is set up to track and collect personal information not entered by visitors, including IP address and information about your visit, including the full URL clickstream to, through and from the Site, including date and time; pages you viewed or searched for; page response times; download errors; length of visits to certain pages; page interaction information such as scrolling clicks, and mouse-overs; and methos used to browse away from the page. Additionally, through web site access logs HJC does collect clickstream data and HTTP protocol elements, which generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user analysis and business decision making, all of which provides better services to the public. The statistics garnered, which contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information, may also be provided to third parties.

(b) Use of Cookies. HJC collects non-identifiable and personal information through the use of various technologies, including "cookies". A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier that a web site can transfer to customer's hard drive through customer's browser. The cookie is then stored on customer's computer as an anonymous tag that identifies the customer's computer, but not the customer. Cookies may be sent by HJC or its third-party vendors. Customers may set their browser to turn off cookies; however, some web sites may not then work properly.

(c) Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. HJC may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the Site in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on the Site; web site and system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as "clickstream data." HJC or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.

(d) Collection of Personal Information. HJC collects personal identifying information from customers during a transaction. HJC may extract some personally identifying information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help HJC understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
