The Site uses cookies and similar technologies to improve user experience, for performance and

“logged in” status when visiting protected areas.  Most web browsers have settings to allow
you to reject cookies, selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please
be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our Website may make certain functions
unavailable to you or cause certain parts of our Site to not function correctly.  For information

unique identifier, information you enter in a form, IP address, and other categories of data.
We may also use web beacons or “pixels,” and in certain circumstances may collect IP address,

Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative that has developed a “flag” or signal that an Internet
user may activate in the user’s browser software to notify websites that the user does not wish
to be “tracked” by third-parties as defined by the initiative. The online community has not
agreed on what actions, if any, should be taken by the websites that receive the “do not track”
signal, and therefore Do-Not-Track is not yet standardized. Please note that the Site does not
alter its behavior or use practices when we receive a Do Not Track signal from your browser.
