You may visit our website anonymously. Except as described in this privacy statement, we do not collect identification data of our visitors.

We do, however, use cookies (small computer files that stay on your computer and let us know when and how often you visit our website) to keep and track general information about website usage. Cookies do not identify the individual user, just the computer used.

Cookies and other similar technology can make it easier for you to use the website during future visits.

This information allows us to understand how our website is being used so we can assess how well it is working and to help us make decisions about how to improve it.

Persistent cookies store information on your computer for longer periods of time. We use session and persistent cookies. However, at no time is your Personal Information, whether stored in persistent cookies or elsewhere, shared with third parties who have no right to that information.

If you do not wish to have cookies stored on your computer you can easily change your web browser to refuse them, or to let you know when you get a new cookie. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn more about these functions. Refusing cookies, however, can restrict your use of website.
