What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique
identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site’s computer asks your computer
for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically
designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser
if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser
only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not
the cookies sent to you by other sites.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the
Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network
to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web
server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data”
so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content
of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We
provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ
in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.

If that should occur, the third-party owners may use your data in the same manner described in this document.

We have security measures in place to protect your data from accidental loss, access, use, alteration, or disclosure. We limit the access to your data to employees, agents, contractors and other third-parties who have a business need for that data. They will only access this data per our instructions and subject to non-disclosure.
