  • Patent number: 8935797
    Abstract: Customer online data is collected via script on customer computers and is communicated to a server hosted by an organization, such as a card issuer. The customer online data communicated to the server is non-personally identifiable information (non-PII). In turn, the server aggregates the non-PII customer online data from the set of participating merchants. The server associates the received non-PII customer online data with non-PII demographic data. Other non-PII transaction data, such as previous transactions processed at a card issuer, also can be associated with the non-PII customer online data and non-PII demographic data. These associations are, in turn, used to create reports and to provide services to help merchants or other requesting organizations develop online strategies to drive click thru and conversion rates.

  • Publication number: 20130336717
    Abstract: A mounting system characterized by a mounting point in the form of a grommet, and a frame in the form of a flange designed to securely engage the grommet, allowing a device, with an attached frame, to be placed in a fixed position, and removed, as desired by the user of the device. The user of this system may employ a range of mounting points in different locations, allowing a device to be fixed in a variety of locations as needed. This would also allow different device/frame combinations to be attached to a given mounting point. The mounting points and frames can be formed by a wide range of materials, the ability to securely engage/disengage being the limiting factor.
