From a website owner’s perspective, Cookies allow one to analyze website traffic patterns and collect general information from a visitor’s browser such as geographic region, the Internet Service Provider’s IP address, the duration of session visits, language preferences and the type of browsers used or installed.

Companies Providing Analytics
Another way we gather information automatically is through the use of companies that specialize in helping others understand their website visitors’ behavior. This is accomplished by gathering non-identifying statistics such as geographic location, duration of website visits, pages viewed, whether the visitor is a new or returning one, demographic data, interest data, information about the browser or device used and whether the visitors arrived at the Website from an external site or source.
This information may then form the basis of statistical or analytical reports we use to ultimately improve our business and/or Website, but not before all personally identifiable visitor information has been removed or rendered anonymous.
Our service providers are strictly prohibited from making any other use of the personal information collected from our Website visitors.
