How We Collect Information
We receive and store information you give us. When you submit information on this website and related websites linked to this website, we collect whatever information you include.
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet access provider when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer Internet access provider, your IP address probably varies from session to session. We may track IP addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our web page flow.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a web site sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a web site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Persistent Cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information and do not infiltrate your hard drive to gather confidential information; our cookies are not “spyware”.
