A "cookie" is a bit of information that a website sends to
your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.
"Session" cookies are temporary bits of information that are used to improve navigation,
block visitors from providing information where inappropriate (the site "remembers"
previous entries of age or country of origin that were outside the specified parameters
and blocks subsequent changes), and collect aggregate statistical information on
the site. They are erased once you exit your web browser or otherwise turn off your
"Persistent" cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the
hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent
cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving
certain information you have previously provided (such as passwords), helping to
determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing
the website based on your preferences on an ongoing basis. Persistent cookies placed
by this site on your computer may hold personally identifiable information, but
only if you have registered or have otherwise consented to the retention of personally
identifiable information you have provided at the site. Otherwise, our site's server
only knows that an unidentified visitor with your cookie has returned to the site.
You can set your browser to accept all cookies, to reject all cookies, or to notify
you whenever a cookie is offered so that you can decide each time whether to accept
it. To learn more about cookies and how to specify your preferences, please search
for "cookie" in the "Help" portion of your browser.
A site may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned
to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet
and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because
in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet),
rather than static (unique to a particular user's computer). The IP address can
be used to diagnose problems with a server, report aggregate information, determine
the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to a site, and administer
and improve the site.
"Internet tags" (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and
1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the website server information such
as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor's computer. Tags may be
placed both on online advertisements that bring people to the site and on different
pages of the site. Such tags indicate how many times a page is opened and which
information is consulted.
"Navigational data" (log files, server logs, and clickstream data) are used for
system management, to improve the content of the site, for market research purposes,
and to communicate information to visitors.
