Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Thoughtfulness may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Thoughtfulness affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.

This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Thoughtfulness may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
