1. The Types of Information We Collect About You
When you enter and browse the website, we may collect two different types of information about you: information you provide to us, and information we collect through technology.
• Information You Provide to Us When you send an email to Summit or complete an online form (e.g., Email alerts), we collect certain personally identifiable information about you such as your name, company, address and e-mail address.
• Information We Collect Through Technology We also collect or log information that cannot identify you personally such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, which is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), and your domain name, which is the name of the ISP computer itself. This information is used to track and analyze the traffic patterns on the website, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the website.
