What Information We Collect From You
This policy applies to information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information"). It does not apply to information that is considered publicly available.

Our primary goals in collecting Personal Information are to provide you with the information, resources and services made available through the Site, and to communicate with you.
Both Personal Information and public information about you may be collected directly from registrations you complete and submit to us on the Site. This information may also be collected indirectly from your access to the Site.
Some information about you is collected automatically when you access the Site. Step 13 servers will automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Site. Collected data may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, and the search terms you use. We use this information to monitor your use of the Site and its services, and for the Site's technical administration. We do not associate your IP address with any other Personal Information in order to identify you, except in case of violation of the Agreement.
