When you visit and navigate our site and when you communicate with us via our site, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. You should be aware that when you visit our Site, we may collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with "usage data," such as the number of visitors we receive, what pages are visited by a visitor or the ISPs or types of browsers most frequently used. This data helps us to analyze and improve the usefulness of the information we provide at this Site and any products and services provided.

Like most commercial website owners, we may also use what is known as "cookie" technology. A "cookie" is an element of data that a website can send to your browser when you link to that website. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the website is able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. For example, a cookie can be used to store your preferences for certain kinds of information or to store a password so that you do not have to input it every time you visit our Site. The cookie does not extract other personal information about you, such as your name and address. Most browsers provide a simple procedure that will enable you to control whether you want to receive cookies by notifying you when a website is about to deposit a cookie file. Please note that in certain areas of this Site there may be additional information concerning the privacy practices applicable to the use of that area.
