Browsing and the use of cookies, Web beacons and other tracking technologies; mash-ups and logs

The Site uses cookies as part of its statistical reporting and for other purposes related to making the Site available to you. Cookies may also be used for purposes of delivering an advertisement to you when you are on another website. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a website that is saved on your hard disk by your computer's browser. It holds information a website may need to personalize your experience (such as, rotating images on the home page of the website). We also utilize cookies to identify if you are logged into your Site account. Cookies may be operable for varying periods of time, depending on the Site feature or features with which they are associated.

If you prefer, you can configure your browser to reject all cookies, or to notify you when a cookie is set. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie and privacy preferences. However, if you reject cookies, your participation in Site may be materially impaired or may altogether preclude your participation in the Site.

A Web beacon is an electronic image, also called a single-pixel or clear GIF, placed in the code of a webpage or in emails. The Site uses Web beacons to track traffic patterns of users as they navigate from one page to another. This information lets us tune and improve our users' browsing experience. The information that Web beacons collect is aggregated, anonymous "click stream" data, and is not associated with you as an individual.

We also use Web beacons through a third party website analytics provider, as well as standard Web server log files, to help us count visitors and evaluate the Site's technical capacity. This information tells us how many people visit the Site, and helps us decide how to arrange pages in the most user-friendly way. This also helps us keep the Site browser-friendly and more useful to our users. We record information on Site traffic, but not on individual visitors to the Site, so no Personal Information about you will be kept or used. We may also elect to implement certain technology that will provide us with information regarding visits to the Site, such as Google Analytics. All such information is anonymous. Our partners may collect similar anonymous information.
