COOKIES & CLICKSTREAM TECHNOLOGY
As you navigate the site, we may also collect information through the use of commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and web beacons (collectively “Website Navigational Information”). Website Navigational Information includes standard information from your web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the actions you take on the Site (such as the web pages viewed and the links clicked).

They usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page. They do not collect any information from your computer.

These cookies may be either Session or Persistent cookies.
