    Except as disclosed below, we don’t sell, barter, give away, or rent your personal information.

    (a) Personal Information. Use of certain features of the site, like signing up to receive a newsletter, or responding to one of our surveys may require that you provide certain per-sonally identifiable information, in other words, information that identifies or describes you, such as your name, email address, telephone numbers, address, zip code, age, and gender (“personal information”). We also may collect and store personal information about you that we receive from other sources, e.g. the information we receive from raceit.com when you register for an event or to be a spectator. Raceit.com has its own privacy policy and you should refer to it for any questions you may have about the infor-mation Raceit.com collects about you when you register for one of our events or to be a spectator using Raceit.com.

    (b) Anonymous Information. Even if you don’t request a newsletter or fill-out a survey, when you interact with the site, we may collect certain non-personal information. For ex-ample, our servers keep an activity log that tracks all visitors to the site. The information in the activity log is anonymous and therefore does not identify you individually. The anonymous information our server collects may include among other data: your IP ad-dress, your registered domain or home server, time of access, date of access, web page(s) visited, number of clicks, software crash reports, type of /powser used, session identifica-tion number, search terms, search results, access times and referring website’s addresses.
