As is true of virtually all dynamic websites on the internet, the Website uses “cookies” (i.e., a small file that theWebsite writes to a user’s device) to help track your usage of theWebsite, including what advertising you have seen and whether you have logged in. Cookies are used to “remember” settings you choose to enable on the Website and to record your browsing activity on the Website.Neither the Website, nor the cookies, can read any data off of your device outside of our cookies; this includes any cookies saved by other websites.If you wish to not receive a cookie following your visit to the Website, you must disable cookies globally or for the Website specifically through your web browser.

A web beacon is an embedded image, usually invisible, in a website that is used purely to determine whether a user has accessed the website. The intent is to track who is reading a given website, when they are reading it, and from what device they are reading it from. The use of Web Beacons is commonplace, but it does mean a third party server will receive your IP address, the type of web browser you are using, and the existence of any cookies previously saved to your device from earlier visits. The owner of the third party server can store all of the information, assign it a unique tracking token, and monitor your behavior on the website over a long period of time.
Over the course of your visiting and utilizing the Website, we may assign you a unique identifier to keep track of your future visits and usage. We use the identifier to gather aggregate demographic information and form a snapshot of who our users are as a whole, and we use it to personalize the information you see on the Website and, at times, the information you receive from us via our mailing list. We keep this information purely for our own internal use, and this information is not shared with others, nor is an effort made to connect a unique identifier with an individual person’s identity.

1. To provide you with the products, services or offerings you request.
