Hi Klei.


I'd like to know what does it actually mean "Browser information" in Privacy Policy? What kind of information?

When you use a web browser it sends to the server a string called a User Agent, which typically contains things such as: the browser name+version, OS name+version, rendering core, and other fluff.

Since no two browsers are the same, websites must make all sorts of exceptions and hack workarounds to deal with it.  Likewise, since it's free data being sent every time a user uses a website it can also help keep the site's maintenance easier by knowing what the majority of the users use and tailor the site to that instead of wasting resources making hotfixes and kludges for the few users of some no-named browser.

It's fairly harmless.
