They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the User. We also use persistent (permanent/stored) cookies, which are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the User, such as Web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific site.
Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information; however, once you choose to furnish a Site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
In addition, we may track your activity on the site using third-party plugins and widgets, such as Google Analytics, Google Web site Optimizer, Google Adwords, and Google Remarketing, which allow us to collect statistics on how our users use our Site and, in return, offer better Services.
