What information do we collect and when do we collect it?

As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as "clickstream data," can be collected and stored by a website's server. Clickstream data may tell us the type of computer and browsing software that you use, information about your electronic handheld device, physical location and the address of the website from which you linked to our website. We may use clickstream data as a form of aggregate information to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our website, how visitors navigate throughout the website, site performance and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. This information is primarily used to improve our website. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be anonymous and aggregate, and will not contain any personal information. We track this activity using a service provided by Google Analytics. You should refer to Google Analytics' privacy policy to learn speciLically how they collect and use information. You can find Google's privacy policy at: http:// www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/

What about "cookies"?

To provide better service and a more effective website, we sometimes use "cookies" as part of our interaction with your browser. A "cookie" is a small text file placed on your computer's hard drive by our web page server. "Cookies" are commonly used on websites and do not harm your system. By configuring your preferences or options in your browser, you determine if and how a "cookie" will be accepted. These "cookies" do not collect personally identifiable information, and we do not combine information collected through "cookies" with other personal information to determine who you are or your email address.

We may use third party advertising companies to serve ads such as Google Adwords with remarketing features to show our ads on sites across the Internet. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness as well as to serve ads based on previous visits to our website. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.

Additionally, you can opt out of Google's use of cookies by visiting Google's Ads Settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads.
