CRIF CORPORATION also collects domain information as part of its analysis of the use of this site. This data enables us to become more familiar with which customers visit our site, how often they visit, and what parts of the site they visit most often. CRIF CORPORATION uses this information to improve its Web-based offerings. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part.
How We Use the Information
