WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
HOW IS INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM COOKIES?
As you visit on our site, the site may use its cookies to collect aggregate data on which pages you have clicked on, etc. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our site and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our site and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.
