If you register with the site, participate or participate in various other features of the site (such as post a comment), you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, or address (“Personal Information”). In addition, you may be asked to provide non-personally identifiable information such as location, personal or professional interests, demographic information (such as age and gender), or to comment on your experience with our site and/or services.

We may also collect data based on users’ usage of the site and its various features, but it is not personally identifiable except as described below under the Web Server Logs and IP Address (“Aggregate Data”) to collect information about how our Web site is used. In addition, we may take your personal information and create anonymized information by excluding information that makes it personally identifiable to you (“Anonymized Data”).
What about Web Server Logs and IP Addresses?
Like many other Web sites, EquityCrowdfund.org makes use of Web server logs. The information inside the Web server logs includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
