Cookies are small text files that Web browsers place on a computer's hard drive and are used to tell us whether users and visitors have visited the Website previously.

Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser.

Our Services uses session cookies containing encrypted or encoded information including your username and session ID. This information allows us to process your requests. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you've logged in and are required in order to use the Services.

Web beacons (also known as clear gif technology, invisible GIFs, web bugs, or action tags) or web usage tracking scripts may be used to assist in delivering the cookies on the Services. This technology tells us how many visitors clicked on key elements (such as links or graphics) on a page.
