For example, we may automatically collect information about your internet connection, IP Address, operating system, and browser type. The information we automatically collect is used solely for internal review and to update and improve the Website and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes. The technology we use for this automatic data collection includes through the use of "cookie" technology. “Cookies” are small data files that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. They may contain information, such as a user ID, that the website can use to track users' progress through the website, but any personal information contained within any "cookie" can only be supplied voluntarily by you. The “cookie” enables us to track the total number of visitors to the Website, the popularity of various areas of the Website, and the length of the visits in an aggregate form (as one of a group, your individual personal information is not singled out). No personal information is extracted in this process. We do not contact you nor do we provide this information to third parties.
