We sometimes aggregate demographic information, and the types of systems and browsers of users for internal purposes, so that we may better understand the user of our Services. Personal Information does not include "aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group of users, from which individual identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use the Service, or the results of such use, may be collected and combined with similar information from others, but no Personal Information will be included in the resulting aggregate data. We can extract statistical data from your content in order to provide it to other users or partners without connecting it to any personal data such as name or email address. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and user needs so that we can better consider new products and services, and tailor existing products and services to customer desires. You understand that we may commercialize aggregate information by any and all means, and that you will receive no payment or other consideration in respect of such use.
