Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If customer does not want cookie information to be associated with customer’s visits to these pages, customer can set its browser to turn off cookies; however, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.
- Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. NJSBA may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the NJSBA Website(s) in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on NJSBA website(s); website and system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” NJSBA or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.
- Collection of Personal Information. NJSBA collects personal identifying information from customer during a transaction. NJSBA may extract some personally identifying information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data.
