Cookies and Other Anonymous Web Tracking Techniques
Like most websites, we collect information online through “cookies” and other web analytics. Cookies are pieces of information stored directly on the computer you are using. They do not identify the person using the computer or otherwise affect the computer, but rather tell us such things as how many users visited our site, the pages accessed, and whether there were any problems or delays in loading pages. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our websites to our visitors and ensure that they function properly. Some cookies serve an essential function and the websites cannot work properly without them. Where such essential or strictly necessary cookies are used, they cannot be disabled. Other types of cookies, such those that involve performance or functionality, don’t identify you as an individual but may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site so that you do not need to reset them each time you visit the website. Finally, targeted or advertising cookies help collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. You can decline any performance, functionality or targeted/behavioral advertising cookie for this website and other websites by resetting your web browser so that it does not accept these technologies. However, doing so means you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website features.
