Like many web sites we use "cookies" to identify your computer and to enable us maintain a user’s session information, to help us identify the portions of our Site that may be the most relevant for your needs, and to help us identify other products or services that may be of interest to you or others.

A cookie is a small piece of information that a web site can store on your web browser and then retrieve at a later time. We use cookies to track the portions of our Site you visit. However, we do NOT use cookies to examine your surfing behavior before or after you leave our Site. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser settings. Our site is viewable even if you disable the cookie function on your browser. However, if you disable cookies, some features will not be available to you.

We also use a tool called "Google Analytics" to collect information about use of this Site and/or Services. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this Site and/or Services, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this Site and/or Services. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to improve this Site and/or Services.

Sharing of your Information
