Information“We”Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technology.

As“Visitor’s”navigate through our“Website”,“we”may use automatic data collection technologies including Google Analytics to collect certain information about“Visitor’s” equipment, browsing actions, and patterns.

This will generally include information about“Visitor’s” location,“Visitor’s”traffic pattern through“our” “Website”, and any communications between“Visitor’s” computer and“our”“Website”. Among other things,“we” will collect data about the type of computer“Visitor’s”use, “Visitor’s”internet connection,“Visitor’s”IP address, “Visitor’s”operating system, and“Visitor’s”browser type.

Use of Cookies And Pixels

Similar to other commercial websites,“our”“Website” utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how“our”site is used. “Visitor’s”information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at “the Site”, and the websites visited just before and just after “our”“Website”, as well as“Visitor’s”IP address.

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When“Visitor’s”visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Cookies make web surfing and browsing easier for“Visitor’s” visiting the“Website”by saving the“Visitor’s”preferences so that“we”can use these to improve the“Visitor’s”next visit to “our”“Services” – for example, remembering your login information. Cookies help us learn which areas of our “Services” are useful and which areas need improvement. “Visitor’s”can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on“Visitor’s”browser.

When“we”use cookies or other similar technologies,“we”may set the cookies or ask third parties to do so to help “us.


Cookies may be either persistent or temporary (or session) cookies. A persistent cookie retains user preferences for a particular website allowing those preferences to be used in future browsing sessions and remains valid until its set expiry 

date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A temporary cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

To do so, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on“Visitor’s” browser (including through the use of pixel tags). They may also use these technologies, along with information they collect about “Visitor’s”online use, to recognize“Visitor’s”across the devices“Visitor’s”use, such as a mobile phone and a laptop.
