We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a “cookie.” These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features.
In addition, we place cookies that collect information about how you use our website. These cookies aggregate anonymous information regarding how visitors use our site so that we can improve how our website works. For example, it will let us know which pages visitors go to the most or if our visitors are seeing an error page on our site. We also place cookies to remember the choices you make on our site so that we can provide you with a more enhanced and personalized experience.
Cookies can also help us provide information which is targeted to your interests. We use this information to determine our members’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL of the website that you visited prior to our Website (whether this is on our site or not), the URL of the website you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.
Most of our cookies are “session cookies”, meaning that they are automatically deleted from your device at the end of a session. However, some cookies are persistent. This means that those cookies are stored on your device in between your sessions so that we can remember your preferences and choices.
You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits. To do this look in the Tools or Preference menu option for your browser.

We may use one or more third party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. Those advertising companies may also collect anonymous information about your visits to our Websites. This is primarily accomplished through the use of a technology device, commonly referred to as a Web beacon, cookie or an action tag, which is placed on various Web pages within our Websites or in an HTML e-mail that allows a third party advertising company to collect anonymous information. There may also be a number of services offered by external service providers that help you use our Websites. If you choose to use these optional services, and in the course of doing so, disclose information to the external service providers, and/or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by their privacy policies, if any.
Some of the third party advertisers that we use have their own privacy policies and may allow you to opt out of having your information collected as discussed above.
