To help us serve your needs better, we use “cookies” to store and sometimes to track user information. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie contains a unique number that allows our Site to identify your computer. For example, cookies allow us to keep track of your user name and password (if you are a Registered Subscriber) so you don’t have to re-enter that information each time you visit our Site.

Please note, you can elect to turn-off, reject, or disable cookies at any point while utilizing the site through your computer’s Internet settings.  We highly recommend turning off your cookies if you do not want your personal information to be tracked and stored.

We may also collect information about your access time and your computer configuration, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system that you’re running, the resolution of your computer monitor and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. Your IP address does not tell us who you are. Like the IP address, none of the other information described in this paragraph identifies you personally.

For example, we may want to know how long the average user spends on our Site, which pages or features get the most attention, and the like. The aggregated information helps to understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our Site.
