“Personal Information” is defined as information that would allow someone to identify or contact Users (i.e. Users’ names, organizations, addresses, and email addresses). Personal Information does not include aggregated information or information about Users that, by itself, does not permit the identification of individual persons.

“Nonpersonally Identifiable Information” is defined as anonymous information about Users that does not include Users’ names or contact information. Examples of such aggregated data would be IP addresses, browser types, and access times. All Stars may use this information to customize the All Stars Websites for Users and may not include or refer to Personal Information, such as Users’ email addresses, when using this type of data.

(C) Aggregated Information

“Aggregated Information” is defined as information All Stars gathers by aggregating Nonpersonally Identifiable Information to provide summaries of use of the All Stars Websites.
