3. GATHERING, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
A. Gathering Non-Personal Information
(i) Web Browsers
Like most Site operators, TimeCurve Software gathers from users of the Site Non-Personal Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available.

A "Web Beacon" is an object that is embedded in a web page. It is usually invisible to users but allows Site operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides.
