Tracking Information

Cookies. From time to time, we may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to our Web site. We do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies, nor do we employ any data capture mechanisms on our website other than cookies.

However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience at our Web site may be diminished and some features may not work as they were intended.
