We collect information from you and our other users to administer our business activities and to measure and improve our Services, solely to the extent permissible pursuant to applicable law.  Information is also used to fulfill your requests, conduct research, and develop new services and/or offer additional products and services to our visitors.  For example, Higher Digital may use your IP address to determine which language to use to provide you when browsing web pages available through the Services.
