How Do We Use "Cookies", "Web Beacons", “IP Addresses” and Aggregate Information?
In addition to cookies, we may also use tiny electronic images or "Web beacons", which allow us to count users who have visited specific pages or access certain cookies. We may use Web beacons in the following ways:
- To count and recognize users,
- To conduct research on behalf of some partners on their websites, and for auditing purposes,
- To determine aggregate information about users, including demographic and usage information,
- To determine which email messages were opened and/or acted upon when we send HTML-formatted email messages (messages resembling Web pages that include graphics).
Internet Protocol address ("IP address") are automatically provided by your browser to other computers with which you communicate over the Internet, so that they know where to send you information. We receive an IP address each time you view one of our Web pages, because the browser automatically reports it to us. We also may store the IP address when you register with MeetPips.com or post a message. We may use IP addresses for various purposes, including:
- Diagnosing service or technology problems.
- Assessing and maintaining system security.
- Displaying the most appropriate advertising or content.
- Studying how people use our Website and how we can improve it.
Aggregate information refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that is not tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the websites you visited just before and just after our Website), the pages viewed, time spent at our Website, and IP addresses. When you request a page from our Website, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers and partners. We use this aggregated information to determine consumer trends and needs, which allows MeetPips.com to advertise more effectively, and allows you to receive advertisements that are less duplicative and more relevant to your interests.
What about Information Collected by Third-Party Websites, Ad Servers, and Sponsors

In the course of serving advertisements to this Website, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser.
Many of our advertisers or sponsors link from our Website to areas on their own websites where they sell their own products and services. If you follow links from our Website to others, you should be aware that you are doing business with those other websites, which have their own privacy and data collection practices. MeetPips.com has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies (and we may not even know what they are).
