(b) Usage tracking:
(i) Use of IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever You are surfing the Internet. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
Sali Homes and/or its affiliates collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregated information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of the Website. When Customers request pages from the Website, our servers log the requesting Customer’s’ IP addresses. Except where You participate in any online transaction Sali Homes may offer from time to time, we normally will not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that individuals’ sessions will be logged, but Customer identity remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify individuals when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, the Website, or any person, or where it is otherwise permitted by law.
By showing how and when individuals use the Website, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not.

This kind of information is most easily tracked using cookies.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your Web browser to either refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent, with a concurrent option to accept or receive the cookie. However, note that some of the services offered on the Website will not function properly or may be considerably slower if You refuse to receive cookies. For example, without cookies, You will not be able to set personalized preferences.
