We do not link your IP addresses to anything that identifies you. In those limited cases where session information is not anonymous, Myna Solutions will provide notice of the practice and an opportunity to “opt out”.

When we receive information about your session or about you, we may also use it for research or to improve our site and the services we offer you.
