COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS

As is commonly done on websites, we may use cookies and similar technology to keep track of our users. A “cookie” is a small text file containing alphanumeric characters that is stored on your computer and uniquely identifies your browser.

Like many other websites, we use “Session Cookies” in your current visit to help keep you logged in as you navigate through our Site. We also use “Persistent Cookies” allows us to track repeated visits to the Site and link each visit to the information voluntarily provided by the visitor. For example, if the visitor is asked to provide us with name, company name, and email address, we will know the identity of the visitor when they visit the site at a later date. Another example involving “Persistent Cookies” is where Visitors may specify Site Preferences to have them set when they visit the Site at a later date.

Lastly, we may record information that your web browser routinely shares, such as your browser type, browser language, software and hardware attributes, the date and time of your visit, the website from which you came, the geographical location of the Internet Protocol address and the pages on this Site that you visit. This will generally be anonymous data that we collect on an aggregate basis. We use this information to help us monitor our Site traffic and understand visitor behavior. To do this, we use Java scripting in cooperation with cookies and “web beacons” to track Site traffic and email response. A “web beacon” is an electronic image, called a 1-by-1 pixel or clear GIF, that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as a cookie number, time and date of a page view and so on. These methods do not collect any personal information, but simply aggregate information that allows us to research patterns of behavior on our site to learn how to better meet our visitors’ needs.
