Web Cookies and Tracking

Web cookies (a.k.a. HTTP cookies, or cookies) are bits of text that are sent by a server to a Web browser, and then sent back by the browser each time it accesses that server. In other words, a cookie is a piece of data stored on a user’s computer that is tied to information about the user and is generally used to deliver improved user experiences by remembering things like their preferred language, etc. Web beacons are embedded objects in a webpage or email that are invisible to the user, but allow checking that a user has viewed the page or email. These tracking items are also known as web bug, tracking bug, tag or page tag. This website does use cookies. Additionally, some of my business partners (for example, advertisers) may use cookies and web beacons as well. This site has no access to, or control of advertisers’ web cookies or web beacons. You can disable cookies, check your browser's help section to find out how to do this in your individual browser options.
