Automatic Login to Session Data
Automatically, we make generic registration of information about your computer's Internet connection, we call it "session data" and it is done anonymously, not linked to any personal information. The data in a session is for example the IP address, operating system and type of software used to navigate, as well as the activities carried out by the user during the time he is on our site. An IP address is a number that allows you to connect the computer to the Internet, know how our web servers return data to the user, such as the pages that the site user asks to see. We collect session data because this helps us do point analysis such as: what topics visitors prefer to enter, how they are entering when they are on site, how many visitors are moving from one page to another on the site, how long visitors are staying on the site, and how often they are visiting it. It also help us diagnose problems with our servers and allow us to better manage our systems.
