2. Website Use Information

Cookie Policy

Similar to other websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies”

(see explanation below) and web server log files to collect information about how our

website is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may

include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent on our website, and

the websites visited immediately before and immediately after your visit to our website.

 

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique

identifier. When you visit a website, that website’s computer asks your computer for

permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for

cookies.

 

Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences

allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the

cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive

cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you

choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our

website will not function as effectively when viewed by the users. A cookie cannot

retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.

 

How do we use the information we collect from Cookies?

As you visit and browse our website, cookies are used to differentiate you from other

users. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from having to log in more

than is necessary for security reasons. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server’s

log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and

which pages of our website are most frequently visited. This helps us gather feedback

to constantly improve our website and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow

us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any

personal information that your browser provided to us via cookies.

 

 

IP Addresses

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet.

Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your

computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of

demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that more relevant information

can be shared with you.

 

Sharing and Selling Information

We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identifies a

subscriber (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the

extent that is necessary to process transactions, provide services that you have

requested or as is required by law.

If third-party companies are contracted to perform services for us on our behalf, then

the contractual arrangement will require such companies to keep the information we

provide confidential and to only use such information to the extent of the authorization

we provide.
