Cookies and Action Tags.
Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your computer or mobile device with information about your visit to a particular site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Session ID cookies are erased when you close your browser and do not last beyond one visit to Our Products. Session cookies help us keep track of information such as what service you are searching for. A persistent cookie is a small file stored on your hard drive for an extended period of time. These cookies are used to remember items like your login information if you have elected to have it remembered on your computer or mobile device, and are used to target you for Our Products.
Cookies may be used to:
- personalize your experience on Our Products (e.g., to dynamically generate content on webpages specifically designed for you),
- assist you in using our services (e.g., to save you time by not having to reenter your name upon each visit to Our Products), and
- allow us to statistically monitor how you are using Our Products for purposes of improving our online offerings.
In addition to cookies that we place on your computer or mobile device, cookies may also be placed on your computer or mobile device by our third-party partners (our “Service Partners,” defined below) or to collect Anonymous Information to provide partner services.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. If you reject the cookie, you may not be able to fully use all the functionality of Our Products. Session ID cookies are required to store relevant information as a user moves from page to page. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on Our Products.
“Action tags,” also known as web beacons or GIF tags, are a web technology used to help track Anonymous Information, such as how many times a specific page has been viewed. Action tags are invisible to you, and any portion of Our Products, including advertisements, or e-mail sent on our behalf, may contain action tags. Unlike cookies, action tags are not placed on your computer or mobile device.
By using cookies and action tags together, we are able to gain valuable information to improve Our Products and our services.
How We Use the Information We Collect.
We use your Anonymous Information for the purposes of system administration, providing certain site functionality and content, site tracking, and collecting and reporting aggregate usage information.

We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your username, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to us. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is our top priority. For more information about phishing, you may want to visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/alertsphishingalrt.htm.
