Please see the “Third-Party Advertisers” section below for more information.

Cookies, Web Beacons, and How We Use Them

We design the layout and features of our website so that new visitors may anonymously learn about our products and services without revealing their identities. For new visitors. we use cookies or Web beacons to collect limited data, such as the date, time, and areas of our website that are visited, as well as the website from which the new visitor came. When you select one of our products or services, register for a newsletter or email alert. or complete a survey, we may try to identify your browser; and we may combine information from cookies, Web beacons, and other information collected online with other data that we maintain about you. By improving the features, marketing, and content of our website and by making your online experience more convenient and meaningful, we are able to better serve our customers’ needs.

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer’s hard drive and that often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that website’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this text file in a section of your hard drive that is specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Your browser will only permit a website to access the cookies that it has previously sent to you and not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Some of our business partners, such as third-party advertisers, may use cookies that originate from their websites. We have no access to, or control over, these cookies. For more information, please see the “Third- Party Advertisers” section below. We use cookies to store login or other information on your computer, which serves to improve our website functionality and tailor our services to your preferences and interests. For certain services. we offer users the ability to store a user ID or password within a cookie so that they do not need to reenter it when they subsequently return to our website. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server’s log fi les, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and to assess which parts of the site are most popular. This information helps us to constantly improve our website and better serve our customers. We do not store credit/debit card numbers in cookies. Most Internet browsers allow users to decide whether to accept cookies and how long to keep them on their hard drive. You may reset your browser to refuse cookies and still use our website, although website access and functionality may be slower and less convenient.

A Web beacon is a graphic image, such as a pixel tag or clear GIF, which is placed on a Web page or in an email message to monitor user activity, such as whether the Web page or email message is accessed or clicked. They are often invisible because they are very small in size. They are also used on many Web pages for alignment purposes. We sometimes use Web beacons to provide an independent accounting of how many people visit our website or to gather statistics about browser usage on our website. Some of our Web pages and HTML-formatted email newsletters use Web beacons in conjunction with cookies. It is difficult for you to limit the use of Web beacons because there is no easy way to distinguish their use from alignment and other purposes. Web beacons may also be loaded from a different Web server than the rest of the page.
