How We Use "Cookies"

A “cookie” is a small text file stored on your hard drive containing a string of alphanumeric characters that uniquely identifies your browser and information about you.  The Company, like many other companies, uses cookies to collect information.

We use cookies to uniquely identify your browser, store your preferences and “remember” you.  Cookies can also help the Company see which areas of the site are popular and which are not, allowing the Company to improve and update the site based on data such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.

We do not store any personal information in cookies.

The Company uses both session cookies and persistent cookies.  A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser.  Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site.  Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions.  A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser.  

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to instruct your browser to prevent the use of cookies.  (The “Help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether).  If you disable cookies, you may still use our site, but certain aspects of the experience may be impacted.

We may associate information we collect via cookies with the personal information we collect online. We may use the combined information, for example, to personalize your experience on the website or to personalize marketing communications we may send to you.

Sharing Of Personal Information

We work with third parties to bring you our services and may share personal information and/or other information you provide when another company is involved so that company can perform its functions.  Examples include sending postal mail and e-mail. These third parties have access to information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. 

We do not share your personally identifiable information (such as name or email address) with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. 

We do share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Site. 

The Company restricts access to personal information to its employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information to operate, develop or improve our services.  These parties are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet those obligations.

Links To Other Sites

Our Site may contain links to other web sites.  We try to make sure that these links are to other, helpful web sites, but you should be aware that when you click on links and/or ad banners that take you to third-party web sites, you will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies, not ours. While we support the protection of privacy on the internet, we are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies of third parties and other web sites.
