Like many companies, we use cookies on this Site. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your Device when you visit certain web sites. We use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you’ve visited us before or if you’re a new visitor and to help us identify Site features in which you may have the greatest interest. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting the Site. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies. Remember though, without cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all Site features.

 

Web Beacons

 

Certain pages on this Site may contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs).

Embedded Scripts

 

An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on. If used by us, the code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
