Certain other information may be collected on the site through various technologies without your actively providing the information. Our site is hosted on servers shared with an Internet service provider (ISP). Any Information collected on our behalf by the ISP is managed in accordance with this policy and is protected by applicable law. Certain information about Internet users’ traffic patterns is passively and automatically collected and linked to users’ Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses. These unique IP addresses are assigned to all Web users by their ISPs, and are automatically logged by Internet servers. While the IP address itself does not identify an individual, it may be used with the cooperation of the ISP to locate and identify an individual using the website.

Server logs
In the normal course of establishing and maintaining Internet connections, our servers automatically log information about visits to our site. Server logs record statistical information. These statistics are reported in aggregate form to us and are used to improve our site and ensure that it provides the optimal online experience for visitors.

Cookies
Like many other websites, our site makes use of “per session” cookie technology. Per session cookies are small text files that contain a unique identification number that is automatically deposited on a visitor’s computer. These cookies track information during an open session and are stored only temporarily in your computer’s memory. This information helps us determine the total number of visitors to the site on an ongoing basis and the types of Internet browsers (e.g., Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) and operating systems (e.g., Windows or Macintosh) that our visitors use. We use this information to facilitate and enhance your online visits. We do not cross-reference this information with any type of Information that is voluntarily offered through the site. The use of cookie technology is common on the Internet, and many Internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies automatically. If you would prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your Internet browser to notify you when your computer is receiving a cookie or to refuse cookies automatically. To readjust your Internet browser’s cookie options, please refer to the instruction documentation of your particular browser or seek online assistance.
