Internet Activity and Log Files
InspectHOA follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and are a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any personally identifiable information. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
We may collect information concerning your interaction with our Site, including when you access the Site and your browsing activity on the Site (such as which pages you visited, in what order, and for how long). This may include “traffic” data or tracking information provided by the Site’s host or similar providers, such as Google Analytics, and may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving our services.
Google Analytics may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its advertising network. You can opt out by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
