COMPARITECH LIMITED collects your IP (Internet Protocol) address to help diagnose problems with its server, and to administer the Site and COMPARITECH LIMITED’s email messages to Site Users. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. Your IP address is also used to help identify you during a particular session and to gather broad demographic data.

Although the information collected through the foregoing methods does not itself contain any PII, COMPARITECH LIMITED may analyze and match such information with other information that you provide (including PII) as well as information that COMPARITECH LIMITED may obtain elsewhere, and COMPARITECH LIMITED may share all or some of such information with actual or prospective distributors, dealers, or other third parties.
