Information We Collect by Automated Means

Cookies

Like many companies, we use “cookies” on our website.  A cookie is a block of text placed in a file on your hard drive by a website you've visited.  These types of cookies cannot identify you specifically, such as by name or address, unless the cookie data is attached to personal information such as online registration.  We use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited our website before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify site features in which you may have the greatest interest.  Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site.

We also use a session cookie, which is a piece of identification between your browser and our server.  This helps us keep track of the items in your shopping cart, and other information.  The shopping cart cookie is saved for a designated period of time in case your session expires and you return to complete a purchase within that time frame.  We do not link cookies to personal information.

 

Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies.  Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website features.

For the exhaustive list of cookies we collect see the List of cookies we collect section.
