In general, you can browse the KOREA VISION site without telling me who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. I gather general browsing data from standard server logs.  These include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, and information such as the web site that referred you to us, the files you downloaded, the pages you visit, and the dates/times of those visits.
