We may make extensive use of these non-personally identifiable aggregated data in order to understand how our Site is being used and may share them with others in order to develop, promote, and expand our business. We may also conduct online surveys to better understand the needs and profiles of our visitors and to measure the interest of our visitors in the features of our Site.
