For example, when you subscribe to our Services, we require you to provide personal information including your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, facsimile number, company affiliation, and other basic contact information. You may also provide additional personal information to us when you voluntarily communicate with us, such as when you request information, register for email updates or listen to a webcast, submit application for employment, or when you post information to the user content portion of the Websites.
b) In addition to the information you voluntarily provide to us, we automatically record information from your Internet browser, including your IP address (the Internet address of your PC), your computer's name, the type and version of your web browser, the Internet addresses of the sites from which you access the Websites (referring addresses) and other generally-accepted log information.

c) While accessing and operating an Interactive Data product, the Interactive Data software may record general statistical and tracking information, such as the date and time a client accesses his or her product and the time spent using it. The Interactive Data software transfers this information to Interactive Data's servers, and such information is used exclusively for internal resource management purposes.
e) Referring Sites. Websites that contain links to our Websites are known as “referring sites.” When you enter our Websites from a referring site, we automatically collect information that identifies the referring site and use this information to analyze which third party services send visitors to our Websites and to present appropriate content to our potential customers. Interactive Data tabulates referrer information on an aggregate basis to identify Websites trends and traffic patterns.
