We may collect information, including Visitor Data, using “cookies” and “web beacons.”
“Cookies” are small text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device in order to identify your web browser and the activities of your computer on the Site and other websites. Cookies can be used to personalize your experience on the Site (such as dynamically generating content on webpages specifically designed for you), to assist you in using the Site (such as saving time by not having to reenter your name each time you use the Site), to allow us to statistically monitor how you are using the Site to help us improve our offerings, and to target certain advertisements to your browser which may be of interest to you or to determine the popularity of certain content. In addition to cookies that we may place on your computer or mobile device, cookies might also be placed on your computer or mobile device by third parties that we use to display or serve advertisements for our products and services or to collect non-personally identifiable information in order to provide advertising-related services to us. In the course of serving advertisements, such third parties could place or recognize unique cookies on your browser.

By using cookies and web beacons together, we are able to gain valuable information to improve the Site and measure the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns.
