How We Use Cookies on the Website

The Website makes only limited use of cookies, pixel tags and/or flash cookies (collectively, “Cookies”).  We use them to help You find Your way around the site, to check where You have logged in, to “remember You” after You have registered with Us (if You tell Us to), and in certain circumstances to deliver targeted advertising to You.

A “cookie” is a small piece of computer code sent by a website and stored on the hard disk of Your computer.  A “pixel tag” (also known as a tracking pixel, web beacon, or clear GIF) is an embedded image on a website that may register a user’s website activity.  A “flash cookie” (also known as a Local Shared Object) is a data file stored on Your computer by the websites that You visit (click the following link for more details:  https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html).  Flash cookies provide similar functionality as cookies, but are based on different technology, provide richer data collections, and are persistent; they do not go away when You exit Your browser and generally cannot be deleted through Your browser option tools. 

Specific Cookies the Website may create fall into three groups:  those necessary to make the Website work, those that help Us optimize Our Website and/or add extra functionality to make the Website easier for You to use, and those that deliver targeted marketing to You.
