Cookies We Set

Our Site may use “cookies” to enhance User experience. User’s web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. We use session ID cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. Session cookies do not collect information from the user’s computer. They typically will store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user. A User may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. Please note, by doing so, some parts of the Site may not function properly. Cookies Set by 3rd Parties The use of cookies by our partners, affiliates, service providers is not covered by our privacy policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our partners, affiliates, service providers use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate their site, in order for you to use their shopping cart, etc.

Web Beacons

Our site contains a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information. Behavioral Advertising

We partner with a third party ad network to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partner uses cookies and Web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on this and other Web sites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by clicking Here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads. http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp
