Website Use Information and "Cookies"
Similar to other commercial websites, our Website utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a website. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's web browser on the user's hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one website to simplify subsequent interactions with that website by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transactions on related websites. This makes it easier for a user to move from website to website and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized. We use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Website during a particular visit. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Website, and the websites visited just before and just after our Website.

E-mail that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as Social Security or account numbers to us through an unsecured email.
