2. Which information we may collect on our Users?
We may collect two types of data and information from our Users:
a. The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information (“Non-personal Information”). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us while such User is entering and/or using the Site. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, behavioral information and aggregated information, and may contain, among other things, the activity of the User on the Site, type of operating system, User’s ‘click-stream’ on the Site, type of browser and keyboard language, the hardware specifications of such device (including screen resolution), time spent on various screens of the Site, etc.
b. The second type of information is any information that may be used, either alone or in combination with other information, to personally identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a personal profile, an email address, a home or other physical address, or other contact information (“Personal Information”). This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature.

- Personal Information is collected from the details the Users provide in the Contact Form on the Site which includes, inter alia, the User’s name and e-mail address.
