Cookies & Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through this site, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags or web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the site you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this site might not work without cookies. This site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to site visitors, customize the site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the site for your use. Such information is not combined with personally identifiable information collected elsewhere on the site unless you have consented.

Presently this site uses a number of cookies which are used solely for the purpose of identifying unique visitors, monitoring usage of the site and identifying the source of visitors to the site. This helps us to improve the way our site works, for example by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

The number and type of cookies used by this site may change from time to time. This policy will be updated accordingly to ensure that you are informed about how this site uses cookies.

By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
