Emails sent by Trail Blazer or by users through our services also include page tags that allow the sender to collect information about who opened those emails and clicked on links in them.

Like most websites and services today, our servers keep log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers. The log files contain data about the nature of each access, including originating IP addresses, internet service providers, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system versions, device type and timestamps.
