Like many websites, our site uses “cookie” technology to collect the website activity data listed above. When you visit any website, its server may generate a piece of text known as a “cookie” to place on your computer. Placing cookie text allows websites to “remember” visitors’ preferences, surfing patterns, and behavior while they are connected.

There are two types of cookies, single-session (session) and multi-session (persistent). Session cookies last only as long as your web browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies are stored on your computer for longer periods. If you do not wish to have session or persistent cookies stored on your machine, you can opt out or disable cookies in your browser.

We use a third-party analytics provider (Google Analytics) to analyze the data collected through the session and persistent cookies. The third-party analytics provider does not receive personally identifiable information through these cookies and does not combine, match, or cross-reference site information with any other information. Please see the Google Analytics Terms of Service for more information on their Privacy Policy https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html.
