Like many companies, TIP collects information that your browser sends whenever you visit our website. This Log Data is simply used to help us better understand web traffic statistics, and helps us to improve our website over time. Some of the Log Data that may be collected includes your computer's IP address, browser type, browser version, the pages you visited and how long you spent on these pages.
