WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit any website, that site’s computer (aka the server) asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
HOW DO WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM COOKIES?
Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our site and better serve our clients.
Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.
An IP address is used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your particular computer.
IP addresses are automatically collected by our hosts web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the pages you request) can be sent to you.
We do not track or store your IP address outside of the necessary technical need for the site to function. If any of our non-essential systems need IP address information then the IP address is changed so that it is anonymous and is no longer personal information associated with you.
