What Are Cookies?
Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Web site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a User's Web browser on the User's hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a User accesses on one Web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that Web site by the same User or to use the information to streamline the User's transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a User to move from Web page to Web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
Tracking Technologies and Third Party Cookies
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
We use Web site browser software tools such as cookies and Web server logs to gather information about our Web site Users' browsing activities in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve Users. This information assists us to design and arrange our Web pages in the most User-friendly manner and to continually improve our Web site to better meet the needs of Users and Subscribers.
Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by Users to our Web site as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our Web site and evaluate our Web site's visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual e-mail address or any personally identifying information about you.
How Can Your Information be Secured?
We provide the capability for your data to be encrypted. However, the creator of the form in which you input data chooses how and whether to encrypt your information. Before inputting any sensitive information, determine if encryption is enabled by looking for the "lock" symbol on your web browser or a yellow highlight in the web browser address bar.
INFORMATION OR E-MAIL THAT YOU SEND TO US MAY NOT BE SECURE UNLESS WE ADVISE YOU THAT SECURITY MEASURES WILL BE IN PLACE PRIOR TO YOUR TRANSMITTING THE INFORMATION. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as a social security number to us through an unsecured e-mail.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not, however, secure your personal information that is in the possession or control of our Subscriber.
How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?
