What personally-identifiable information do we collect about you?
We collect personal information from you (a) when you apply for Membership on the Membership Application and (b) in connection with your Member Profile. This information includes, among other things, your name, contact information, financial status, company information, and investment interests. Once you have logged in to the Media Society web site, we may track your activity on our site.
What non-personally-identifiable information do we collect about you?
We automatically gather certain information about you based upon your activity on our site. We may also collect machine data about your processor, operating system, Web browser, etc. This information may include the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) you just came from or go to next and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. This information may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. For instance, we may know that ten people visited this Membership Agreement yesterday, but we do not necessarily know who those people are.
