We also use these technologies to gather usage information and statistics regarding use of the Websites. For example, we collect information about page visits and navigation to determine what articles and topics are of greatest interest and if users are able to find content easily. Likewise, we collect information about which articles and videos are viewed and whether videos are viewed in their entirety to determine what content is of most interest to users. We also use usage information to generate various reports regarding use of the Websites. These reports contain aggregated information about users and do not single out users individually.

We use these technologies to compile statistics about visitors who interact with the Websites and other Synima online content, to gauge the effectiveness of our ads, and to provide more pertinent information to our visitors.
