Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

We may use cookies to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies are identifiers that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable the systems to recognize your browser.

They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire services to monitor traffic.
