Non-Personal Information Collected

We may collect non-Personal Information as follows:

Cookies and Web Beacons

We may receive information through the use of cookies, web beacons, and similar technology. Cookies are pieces of data that a website transfers to a user’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Web beacons are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about website usage, e-mail response and tracking.

This Site may use cookies and Web beacons to provide enhanced functionality on the site (e.g., event registration) and aggregate traffic data (e.g., what pages are the most popular). These cookies may be delivered in a first-party or third-party context. We also may use cookies and web beacons in association with e-mails delivered by us. Our Site may also capture limited information (user-agent, HTTP referrer, last URL requested by the user, client-side and server-side clickstream) about visits to our Site; we may use this information to analyze general traffic patterns and to perform routine system maintenance. You have many choices with regards to the management of cookies on your computer. All major browsers allow you to block or delete cookies from your system. To learn more about your ability to manage cookies and web beacons, please consult the privacy features in your browser.

A designated service provider, or third-party advertisers or their advertising servers may also place or recognize unique cookies on your device or use similar electronic tools in order to display advertisements that you see on our Site. Information about your visits to, and activity on, our Site, an IP address, as well as the number of times you have viewed an advertisement, are used to display on your device screen customized advertisements that may be of particular interest to you. We do not have access to, or control the information collected by, these cookies or similar electronic tools used by these third-party advertisers or their advertising servers. The use and collection of your information by these third-party advertisers and advertising servers is not covered by this Privacy Statement. For information about advertising networks and how to “opt out” of cookies placed by the third parties, please contact the third party companies.

Our designated service provider may assist us with advertisement display functions for our Site. For more information about such provider’s handling of non-Personal Information and use practices, including the use of cookies, as well as its instructions on how to “opt out” of having your Site usage information collected or used by such provider, please contact us. When you opt out via this method, you officially opt out of such provider’s advertisement display programs for your device’s particular web browser. You need to opt out for each browser, on each device you use to surf the web. Similarly, if you connect to the web from multiple devices (e.g., work and home), you need to explicitly opt out from each browser on each device.

Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to disable cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. The help function on most browsers contains instructions on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies or to disable cookies entirely. However, it is possible that some parts of this Web site, such as the polls, surveys, contests, product sales, and game areas, will not function properly if you disable cookies.

Our Site may also use web analytics services provided by service providers (e.g., Google). Such providers may use cookies to help the Site analyze how users use the Site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our Site (including your IP address) may be transmitted to and stored by such providers. Such providers may use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Site, compiling reports on Site activity for Site operators and providing other services relating to Site activity and internet usage. Such providers may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on such provider’s behalf. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser as described above, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our Site.

Third Party Advertisers

As mentioned above, sponsors or advertisers on the Site may use their own cookies, web beacons or other online tracking technologies in the advertisements served on our Site and in emails, special promotions, newsletters or communication we send you. Some advertisers use companies other than us to serve their advertisement and to monitor users’ responses to advertisement, and these companies (“Ad Servers”) may also receive non-Personal Information through the use of cookies or web beacons. In certain situations, information collection may be facilitated by momentarily directing your browser to the website of an Ad Server or other third party acting on behalf of the sponsor or advertiser before re-directing your browser to its selected destination. This re-direction process may not be apparent to you.

We do not control third party’s use of cookies or web beacons, or how they manage the non-Personal Information they receive. You should not provide Personal Information to such sponsors, advertisers and Ad Servers without your consent. Certain Ad Servers allow you to prevent such third party’s from collecting data through the use of cookies. In order to do so, you must opt out of such data collection with each individual site.

Some of the information gathered from the use of cookies, web beacons and similar technology is described below.
