Passive Data Collection:
Various tools and techniques are used to gather and analyze visits to this website and user sessions in order to improve your experience. One of the ways we gather information about customer visits is through cookies. Some of XSB’s websites and Services may utilize cookies, tags, or other tracking technologies.

A tag is code embedded in a web page, or email, that allows XSB or a third-party to see that you have looked at that page and what specific features within the page you may have used.
XSB also uses analytics tools and other third-party technologies, such as Google Analytics, to collect website usage and user metrics on our online websites and Services.
