In addition, some sections of the Site may use “cookies.” Cookies are very small data files left on your computer by the Site. These files can then be accessed by the Site in the future. On their own, cookies do not contain or reveal any personally identifiable information. However, if you choose to furnish us with personally identifiable information, this information can be linked to the data stored in the cookies. Most browsers are automatically set to accept cookies, but they will also allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.

Like most standard websites, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer our website, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

When information is shared with third parties, they are not permitted to use the information for any purpose other than to assist our servicing of your account or as permitted by law.
