Analytic Tracking and Cookies
We employ Google Analytics and other data collection tools to collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information when available. This information is used to make improvements to our websites and to monitor the effectiveness of website changes.
A cookie is a small text file containing a string of characters sent to your computer or device when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user ids, preferences and other information. Cookies can then be used to identify and authorize logged in users, help remember your preferences, and generally improve your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure that the marketing you see online is more relevant to you.
Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can be read only by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies are not spyware. Spyware collects and sends private information simply by being connected to the Internet. Cookies are server-specific, meaning you generally have to be on that particular site for cookies on that page to be read.
You have the option to accept or decline cookies during Internet use. By default, most web browsers accept cookies automatically. To decline cookie use, visit the Settings menu in your browser where you may clear your browser’s cookies or disable cookies. Keep in mind, this may disable certain functionality.
