Like most website operators, Top Schools Ltd (TSL) collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how our visitors use its website. From time to time, we may release such information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
TSL also may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. We only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described further on.
