Cookies and Web Beacons

A “cookie” is a small text file that may be transferred to your computer’s hard drive in order to personalize our services for you and to collect aggregate, non-personal information regarding usage of our Site by all of our users. Each computer is assigned a different cookie that contains a random, unique number. The cookie does not contain personally identifiable information. Our Site may use two different types of cookies: a “session” cookie, which is required to track a user session, and a “persistent” cookie, used to track how the user arrived at the Site (for example, through an email link or from a referral link).

Your browser software can be set to warn you of cookies or to reject all cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookie, this may disable some of the functionality of our Site and you may not be able to use certain services.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you create a user account, personalize a web page, or navigate within a Site, a cookie helps the Site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

A “web beacon,” “clear GIF,” “web bug,” or “pixel tag” is a tiny graphic file with a unique identifier that is similar in function to a cookie, but would allow us to count the number of users that have visited certain pages or screens of our Site, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.

We reserve the right to share aggregated site statistics monitored by cookies and web beacons with our partner companies.
