This information does not identify you personally. This information is used only as a source of anonymous statistical information. We may store such information ourselves, or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by our service providers.

MITRE employs cookies for collecting portions of this information. "Cookies" are data that may be sent to your web browser and stored on your computer. Most web browsers can be configured not to accept cookies, or to notify you if a cookie is sent to you. If you wish not to have cookies set during your visit to the MITRE website, you can disable them in your web browser. The raw log data is retained for a minimum of 90 days.
