When a visitor requests a page from within the DecoExchange, Inc. websites, our Web Servers automatically identify and log the HTTP request that is made to our Web Server.

- The Product Identifier for Version and Make of Browser (e.g. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.103 Safari/537.36)
- The Operating System platform that you may be running (e.g. Macintosh or Windows)
