If you choose to use the Services we will collect your email address and we may collect other information such as your smartphone device type. We may also collect non-personal data: for instance, we may collect data relating to registered users' use of the website and the Services, as well as that relating to their activities, such as searches on Bills and Acts and petitions.

We may also collect anonymous, statistical data from users of the Services, such as a user's browser version, operating system version, country, page loading time, type of device, number of visits, time using the Services, network, demographic estimates, flow-through the website and/or Services or referral source, which may then be aggregated.
