Below, We describe the types of Browsing Information We use and how We may use it.

Cookies. We collect information about you through the way in which your computer interacts with Our system. A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on a user’s computer for activity-tracking purposes. We use cookies on Our websites. We do not link the information We store in cookies to any PII you choose to submit while on Our websites. We use session cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate Our websites. A session cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. Your browser contains instructions for removing persistent cookies. We set a persistent cookie to store your password, so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable Us to track and target the interests of Our users to enhance your experience on Our websites. Please note that if you disable your browser’s ability to accept cookies, while you will be able to navigate Our websites, you may not be able to use the Subscribed Services.

Web beacons. Third parties employ Web beacons on Our website. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users.

Web server logs and IP addresses. We maintain and track usage of Our websites through web server logs and internally developed tools. These logs provide information such as user browser type, most-viewed pages, and traffic loads. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer Our websites, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We use this information to improve the content and usability of Our websites. We may use anonymized or aggregated derivations of this information to identify future website features and functionality and to provide better customer service. We do not link this information with PII. We reserve the right to share aggregate and anonymous information with third parties.

Analytics Data. Our websites use analytics data to inform and optimize Our websites and Visitor’s experience on Our websites based on a Visitor’s prior visits to Our websites. Visitors may opt out of our use of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics Opt-out page.
