What type of information we collect
The first category of information we collect is non-personal and anonymous data related to users, which may be gathered or accessed through your use of the Services and interactions with the website (“Non-personal Information”).

To improve the functionality of the Services and enhance your user experience, we collect technical information transmitted by your computer, including software and hardware details (such as browser type, operating system, language preference, access time, and the domain name of the website that referred you to the Services). This information is collected through the use of third-party analytical cookies.
We also gather data about your usage of the Services, such as user activity (pages visited, time spent on specific pages, online browsing behavior, clicks, actions, etc.). This information is utilized, among other things, for research and analytics purposes to understand how you utilize the Services.
The second category of information we collect is personally identifiable information, specifically information that identifies an individual or can reasonably identify an individual (“Personal Information”). This may include your email address when subscribing to our email newsletters on the website or providing your name and email address when commenting on our news articles.
