In connection with this analysis, Berry Art also uses devices called "web beacons" to help us identify when emails sent to you from us have been received and read. We may also collect IP addresses and other information in order to prevent the introduction of viruses and hackers into the Site.
When we collect this usage data, we typically only use this data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally.
