Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
technologies to track user activity and collect Site data. We may combine
this data with the personal information we have collected from you.
Cookies allow a web server to transfer data to a computer
for recordkeeping and other purposes. We use “cookies” on our Sites to,
among other things, better serve you with tailored information and facilitate
your ongoing access to and use of the Sites. There are two types of cookies:
session-based and persistent cookies. Using cookies, we collect your IP
address, browser type, domain name, referring URL, referring website,
page views, and your downloads.
- Session Cookies.
Session cookies exist only during an online session.
They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn
off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely
identify you during a session or while you are logged in.

Persistent cookies remain on your computer
after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use
persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about
your activity, which we may combine with other information about you.

but if you prefer you can edit your browser options to block them in future.

Local Storage Objects
We may use Flash Local Storage Objects (“Flash LSOs”) to store your Site
preferences, to personalize your visit or to display content based upon
what you view on our Sites. Flash LSOs are different from browser cookies
because of the amount and type of data stored. In addition, you cannot
control, delete or disable the acceptance of Flash LSOs through your browser.

Web Beacons, Pixel Tags and Other Technologies
We use web beacons, such as clear GIFs, web bugs or pixel tags, which
are tiny graphics with a unique identifier similar in function to cookies.
In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive,
clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs
in connection with our Sites to, among other things, track the activities
of website visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about
website usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear
GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response
rates, measure the success of our marketing campaigns, identify when our
e-mails are viewed and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
At times, our Sites may contain links to third party websites. Any access
to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but,
instead, is governed by the privacy policies of those third party websites,
and we are not responsible for the information practices of such third

such information from being used in a manner that may violate this Policy,
the law, or your personal privacy.
How Secure Is Information About Me?

appropriate, password protection, encryption, and SSL to protect our Sites
and the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access,
disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite
our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security
all of the time.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password,
computer, and web-enabled devices, among other things, by signing off
after using a shared computer, inserting a password on your web-enabled
device, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess,
and keeping your password private. You should never share your log-in
information with others. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen or
compromised passwords, or for any activity on your account via unauthorized

days for us to process opt-out requests, and that your opt-out pertains
only to the receipt of marketing and advertising promotions and not for
issues related to your service.
Your use of our Sites, and any dispute over privacy, is subject to this
and the resolution of disputes.
