Personal Information includes information that identifies an individual or institution; for example, a person's name, institution name, mail address, telephone number, e-mail address, or other such information used for contacting or identifying the individual or institution.
We will ask the individual or institution ("Client") when we need Personal Information. Under most circumstances when SirsiDynix requests Personal Information the Client is registering for conferences, surveys, ordering e-mail news or information, joining limited-access sites (such as forum or list servers), signing up for an event or training, or when purchasing and/or registering SirsiDynix products. Personal Information collected by SirsiDynix is often limited to e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service or product Client requested.
Examples of when Personal Information is requested:
SirsiDynix may collect information about Client's computer hardware and software, if it was not supplied by SirsiDynix. This information may include: Client IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of SirsiDynix.
If a Client has selected a service or product that requires payment, we will request Personal Information necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as: name, address, telephone number, and credit card number.
SirsiDynix also collects information about which pages our Clients visit within SirsiDynix. This site visitation data is never linked with Personal Information, except with the user's consent as described below.

Statistical information is used only in aggregate (sum total) anonymous form. SirsiDynix uses this data for research purposes only and we may use this information in aggregate anonymous form to create statistical information. In some cases, with Client approval, we will combine site-visitation data with Personal Information in order to provide the Client with personalized content.
