Cookies (What Are Cookies)
Like most commercial Web site owners, we may also use what is known as "cookie" technology. A "cookie" is an element of data that a Web site can send to your browser when you link to that Web site. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the Web site is able to recognize repeat users, track us age patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract other personal information about you, such as your name or address. Most browsers provide a simple procedure that will enable you to control whether you want to receive cookies by notifying you when a Web site is about to deposit a cookie file. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. You should also be aware that when you visit our Web site, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with "usage data," such as the number of visitors we receive or what pages are visited most often. This data helps us to analyze and improve the usefulness of the information we provide at these Web sites.
