General User Information
As a general policy, Natrol collects certain non-personal information as part of the standard operation

Natrol collects IP addresses for the purpose of analyzing website usage trends, administering the website and
tracking a user’s path through the website. We also collect browser statistics so that we can tailor your
experience with the Site. Natrol will neither use your IP address to attempt to identify your personal
information nor will we marry IP addresses to any personally identifiable information you may provide us.
Natrol may use “cookies” to collect information. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to
an individual’s computer hard drive for recordkeeping purposes and to understand its audience. These cookies would
be restricted for use only on our Site and would not transfer any personal information to any other party.

Natrol does not share the information it collects from you through your IP address through cookies or when you contact
us for support with any third parties. We may, however, disclose your information if required to do so by law, court order
or as required by other governmental or legal entities. Natrol may also disclose user information in special cases when
we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against
