Information Collected by Off The Bench

We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our
website. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and
efficient experience. We do not process this information in a way that is
incompatible with this objective. We collect the following types of
information from our Off The Bench users:

1. Information You Provide to Us: We receive and store any information you
enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not
to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take
advantage of many of our special features.
2. Automatic Information:

-  We receive and store certain types of information whenever you
interact with us. Off The Bench and its authorized agents automatically receive
and record certain “traffic data” on their server logs from your browser
including your IP address, Off The Bench cookie information, and the page you

servers, analyze trends and administer the website.
- Off The Bench may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that
page has been viewed.
- Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites
anonymously. While Off The Bench will not be able to provide you with a
personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware
that these programs are available.
