Our web beacons may collect some contact information (for example, the email address associated with an email message that contains a web beacon).
We use analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile applications on your mobile devices. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from.
