From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Site, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. We collect this information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail below. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Site are most popular and to enhance the Site for visitors. We may group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Site to our existing or potential business partners, sponsors, advertisers, or other third parties, or in response to a government request. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Site. By using this Site You agree that such aggregate non-personal data may be used by CTC and others to select and present advertising to you via this Site or other websites.

Thus, while we hope that you are receiving great advice and are networking with like-minded individuals, we ask that you practice common sense in how you share your data with other users. For example, if another user asks you for money, think twice.
