What is a Cookie?
Cookies are a feature of web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, etc.) software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on one site to simplify subsequent interactions with that site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transaction on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from site to site and to complete transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
This site utilizes cookies to collect information about how this site is used. Passive Information gathered may include the date and time of visits, the site pages viewed, time spent at this site, the sites visited just before and just after this site. If you do not wish to transmit “cookie” information about yourself, you may turn off the cookie function in your web browser; please consult the “Help” section of your browser to correctly do so.
This site’s servers also automatically identify your computer by its Internet Protocol address, which is a unique string of numbers that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. Your IP address may be used to address problems with this server or administer this site or to gather broad demographic information about my users.
How Do I Use the Information Collected?
Broadly speaking, persons I employ directly, or as contractors or agents at my direction, use Active Information for purposes of administering my business activities, providing customer services such as support, and making available other products or services I think may be of interest to my users. I may use the Active Information or Passive Information you provide to me to contact you about changes to this site, new services, features or products I offer, or other information I think you shall find valuable.
I use Passive Information to gather information about my users and to enhance and design this site to make it easier, faster and friendlier to use. Additionally, cookies help me know information about how many people visit this site, when they visit and how they use my service. Passive Information may result in your viewing of particular advertising based on your user habits for your viewing on this site and a shopping experience customized to you in content, services and goods.
