Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect anonymous information about the individual web pages that are visited, which websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Member Profile Information.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We use the Member Profile Information that we collect to help eliminate spammers, and to otherwise protect the integrity of the website. It is also used to help maple producers connect with each other and network. For example, members can contact each other through the forum and you can see which maple producers are in your area via the map on our home page. Each member’s Profile page allow them to control which details are public and which are not.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our members browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
