Aggregate Information

We use general traffic, site usage and length-of-stay information in reports to advertisers and firms with which we have a business relationship.

IP Addresses

We collect and log the IP address of all visitors to alrt.com. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. IP addresses allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. We collect IP address information so that we can properly administer our system and gather aggregate information about how our System is being used, including the pages visitors are viewing. This aggregate information may be shared with advertisers, sponsors and other businesses. To maintain your anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. We will use IP address information, however, to personally identify you in order to enforce our legal rights or when required to do so to comply with the law.

Cookies

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that some websites store on your computer’s hard drive when you visit them. Like many other websites, alrt.com uses cookies to provide us with information relating to the sources of our Site traffic. Collecting this information, however, does not allow us to personally identify you. A cookie may be used to tell when your computer has contacted the Site. ALRT uses the information for editorial purposes and for other purposes such as delivery of advertisements, so ALRT can customize the delivery of information to you without compromising privacy. For example, cookies may be used to ensure that you will not see the same banner advertisement too often in a single session.

We may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our visitors, traffic patterns and related Site information.

Aggregate Information

We use general traffic, site usage and length-of-stay information in reports to advertisers and firms with which we have a business relationship.
