Cookies and Web Beacons
We may use cookie technology and/or web beacon technology. Cookies are pieces of information saved on your computer by our web server. A web beacon is a small graphic image placed on a web page or in an email that is designed to allow us to monitor visitors to our sites. Cookies and web beacons may be used to keep track of who you are as you navigate our sites, and provide us with greater details around when and how you navigate our sites. You can disable cookies through your browser, but your experience may be degraded, and you may not be able to log into our sites or otherwise perform tasks that require you to be logged into our sites.
We take administrative, technical and physical safeguards, which are reasonable for an organization of our size, to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information, including taking reasonable measures to limit access to your personal information to those individuals who require it to perform their job duties. However, the Internet is an inherently insecure medium, and we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
