We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design the Site as we aim to improve the user experience and better deliver the information we believe visitors are seeking.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the Site. For example, we use “cookies” as do many other websites. A “cookie” is an element of data that can be sent to your browser. Your browser may then store it on your system based on the preferences you have set on your browser. Through “cookies” we obtain certain information which allows us to identify you and provide features to you to enable to provide you with a personalized experience and to take full advantage of the Site’s features. It is not our intention to use such information to personally identify a user. Most browsers will enable you to elect not to accept new “cookies” or to disable cookies altogether. Please note, however, that if you refuse or otherwise block cookies you may not be able to use all of the functionality available on the Site.
