Also, where you have previously identified yourself in the registration process as affiliated with a particular business or organization, we may record the fact that a representative of your business or organization visited the site, along with other Clickstream Data concerning that visit. Clickstream Data will not be used to identify you personally and will not be associated or correlated with any site visitor in a personally-identifiable manner.
