Some information is collected automatically by the normal action of the Internet and captured in log files. i-PRO uses log files to monitor web site activity, improve the web site user experience, and to support security measures designed to protect the website and the information captured by the website. Log files capture information such as IP addresses, browser types, OS types, hostname data and the time of each page request. However, the information captured in the log files is not ever correlated or associated with personal data, and so this information does not become personal data, and is not covered by the access and control procedures described above.
We use industry standard web analytics to analyze visits to our sites. These analytics are provided by Google Analytics. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our sites (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google uses this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our sites, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the sites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals.
We currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.

Although the laws that protect personal data in the United States may differ from the laws where you live, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected.
