Studying access statistics and usage patterns helps to project future hardware needs, and aids in the design of new functionality. We also use this information for site and system security. When you sign up for a ProtaBank account, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address, account password, institution). We do not share server log or account information with third parties for marketing or other purposes.
