Passively Collected Information
As you navigate the The Onda Website or use The Onda Services, certain information may be collected passively, including Internet protocol addresses, browser types, operating systems, times of day, general locations, and browser languages. The Onda uses this information in aggregate to determine the composition of its userbase, and the load on its servers, so that The Onda can better serve its Users. The Onda will use geographic information regarding your location to display your general location (e.g., city and state). You may choose to display a different location by editing the information in your Member Profile. This information is associated with a user identifier for the purpose of improving your The Onda experience. Such uses may include recommending websites that correspond to profiles and interests, including the websites of The Onda's sponsors, advertisers and affiliates.
An "Internet protocol address" or "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. The Onda tracks IP Addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze The Onda's web page flow.
