2. Web Site Use Information

As on other Web sites, the counter we use on this site utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What Are Cookies?") and Web server logs to collect information about how the website is used.

Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the sites visited just before our Web site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.

How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?

Broadly speaking, we use this information for purposes of administering the website, determining which sections are most heavily visited and thus should receive the most attention. The server logs also allow us to find any broken links.

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Web site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's Web browser on the user's hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one Web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that Web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from Web page to Web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

We use Web site browser software tools such as cookies and Web server logs to gather information about our Web site users' browsing activities, in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our visitors. This information assists us to design and arrange our pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve our site to better meet the needs of our visitors and prospective visitors.

Cookies help us collect important technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by users to our site as they move from one page to another. Server logs allow us to count how many people visit our site and evaluate our site’s visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you.

Sharing Information with Affiliates

You will notice offers from outside companies advertised on our site. We try to take care to select products or service providers that are responsible and afford privacy protections to their visitors.

However, we cannot make any representations about the online practices and policies of these companies. If you have a bad experience with any of these companies, please report that experience to us.

Do We Disclose Information to Outside Parties?

We may provide aggregate information about our Web site traffic patterns and related Web site information to our affiliates or reputable third parties, but this information includes no personally identifying data.

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.

What About Other Web Sites Linked to Our Web Site?

We are not responsible for the practices employed by Web sites linked to or from this site nor the information or content contained therein. Links to other Web sites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our site.
