“Cookies” are small files that are stored on your computer. They contain website addresses and codes that your browser sends to websites every time you visit them. We may send cookies to your computer to enhance your online experience, primarily by allowing us to recognize you as a Customer or previous visitor and to store your personal preferences.
“Web beacons” are small graphics images (usually invisible) embedded in web pages or e-mails. We may use web beacons to track (1) how users navigate our website (for example, to note how long a webpage was viewed) and (2) what recipients of our HTML e-mails do with them (for example, to determine whether they are deleted, skimmed, opened, printed, forwarded, etc.). Although cookies and web beacons do not store personally identifiable information, if you choose to provide personally identifiable information through our website, that information can be linked to the technical information stored in cookies and web beacons. You may set your browser to reject cookies from us and/or any other website. In addition, you may set your browser to display HTML e-mails as text only, which may prevent the use of some web beacons. (Note that some areas of our website may be accessed, now or in the future, only in conjunction with cookies or web beacons; thus, disabling cookies or web beacons might prevent you from accessing content in those areas.) Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information.
