2. Non-Personal Information.
When you access the Site from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.
We keep track of some of the actions you take on the Site, including but not limited to:

When a User follows a link provided by us in order to purchase an item from a Third Party Site, we only track and log that a purchase was made. If a User makes a purchase through Amazon, Amazon sends us a list of items purchased, price of each such purchased item and the total value of all purchases made. We will not collect any information from a purchase that associates the purchased item with that User’s account.

We also use Facebook Pixel, a web analytics service provided by Facebook, Inc. (“Facebook”) to collect certain information relating to your use of the Site.
