Collection and Use of Information
Anonymous Information/Cookies: You generally can visit this website without revealing your identity or any other personal information about yourself. However, like most other websites, we collect anonymous information from visitors to our website. For example, our Web servers collect the Internet protocol (IP) addresses, domain name addresses, and browser type of visitors to the website. We also collect and measure information on visitor activity on the Benchmark Games website, such as the number of visits to the website, average time spent on the website, pages viewed, and similar information. This anonymous information is sometimes known as "clickstream data".

Also, when we collect personal information from you in connection with a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information such as clickstream data. This combined information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. (If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner, you can disable your cookies.)

We may collect the anonymous information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through the use of various technologies, including one called "cookies". A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. Some pages of the Benchmark Games website may use cookies sent by Benchmark Games or other technologies to better serve you when you return to the site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some areas of the website may not function properly.

Personal Information: There are portions of this Web site where we may request "Individual Identification Information" from you, such as to provide you with certain information you request or to support a download. The "Individual Identification Information" collected from you may include your name, address, telephone, fax number, website address (URL) and e-mail address. If you wish to purchase any products or services through this Web site, "Individual Identification Information" will also include credit card information.
