automatically from you, as described below:

And we may use those inferences to support automated decisions about the content,
recommendations, and offers we present to you on our digital properties. We may use
automated tools to flag for further review suspicious activities associated with our digital

associated with suspicious IP addresses). These automated activities will not, in themselves,
