This information is used to compile standard statistics on website usage and traffic patterns.  If your web browser settings allow cookies our site will utilize them.  Please note that due to alack of consistent standards across browsers, our site may not respond to “do not track” browser settings.  We do not monitor your online activities after you leave our site.

We may share your personal identifying information with affiliates and third parties in accordance with the practices set forth in our Privacy Policy.  If you have provided identifying information via email or form (e.g., name and address), your information will not be sold and may only be transferred to third parties as set forth in our Privacy Policy. We may also use the information for internal statistical purposes or to send you communications about products and services you have requested. Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you in the future to tell you about new products or services you may have potential interest in.
