Cookies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on the Site, pages visited, and language preferences. We and our service provider, Google Analytics, use this information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, display information more effectively, and to personalize your experience while using the Site. In particular, we use cookies to:
    • recognize your computer or device to make your use of the Site easier, such as to remember your locations of interest and other preferences with the Site; and

These monitoring tools are used for the purpose of, among other things, compiling statistics about Site usage and response rates and tracking the activities of users of the Site and e-mail recipients.
  • IP Address: Your IP Address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider. An IP Address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user visits the Site, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many online service providers, including website operators. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Site.
