Information About All Ban the N-Word Visitors

In general, our service automatically gathers certain usage information like the number and frequency of visitors to the Ban the N-Word Web Site and its areas, very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how many visitors use particular parts of our site, so that we can improve our site to ensure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many of you as possible.
