Like most website operators, Bateman IP collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Bateman IP's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Bateman IP's visitors use its website.
