What are cookies?
When you visit our website, we place a so-called “cookie” in a file on your browser so that our website is more user-friendly, effective, and secure. By using a cookie, your browser can remember specific information about you across several pages or between visits to our website. In addition to cookies, we use scripting, which is code run on the website to collect information such as actions you’ve completed on our website or items you click on. We also collect information through “referrers”, which are small pieces of data your web browser passes to us indicating which website linked you to our website. For example, if you click on a link on a Google search result page that takes you to our website, we will receive a referrer that tells us you were linked to our page from Google. For the purposes of this Policy, we refer to these technologies as “cookies.”
We do not store any sensitive personal information within the cookies we place on your device. Our website does not read any information stored in cookies placed on your browser by other websites.
The cookies we use fall into three different categories:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function. They are usually only set in response to actions taken by you which amount to a request for services, such as logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not work if you do block these cookies. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies collect browsing information in order to improve your overall experience. We use this information to track website usage and compile statistics. This helps us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization.
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of our website. This tool uses persistent cookies to allow us to see anonymized behavior information relating to a visitor’s age, gender and interests, as well as basic information about the browser and devices visitors use to access our website.
We may allow third-party advertising cookies to be placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. Third-party cookies, including social media plugins, belong to and are managed by other parties, such as Google or other online advertisers. These kinds of persistent cookies remember the websites you visit, and that information is shared with other parties, such as advertisers. We may use third-party advertising networks to help us deliver tailored online ads to you.
How can I control cookies?
You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. Browsers may also be set up to display a warning when a cookie is used. You may even disable your browser from accepting cookies. Disabling cookies is unique to each browser and device you use. Disabling cookies on one device will restrict the ability to tie that device to other devices you use. Parts of our website may not function properly if you disable cookies. To provide you with the best possible experience while visiting our website, please enable cookies within your browser.
Separate from our website(s), some third-party websites may enable cookies to be placed or accessed on your device by third party advertising networks. These kinds of persistent cookies remember the websites you visit including ours, and that information is shared with other parties, such as advertisers.

We may collect biometric identifiers or other biometric information about our employees and other individuals that work at or visit our physical locations. Where we collect such information, we only retain the information for as long as necessary to satisfy the initial purpose for obtaining the biometric information, or for up to three years from our last interaction with the individual to whom the information pertains, whichever occurs first. However, we may retain biometric information for longer where permitted or required under applicable law, such as in response to a valid warrant or subpoena. We securely dispose of biometric information in accordance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Guidelines for Media Sanitization (SP 800-88).
Do Not Track Signals
Some web browsers incorporate a “do not track” feature that, when enabled, signals to websites and online services that you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet an accepted standard for how to respond to such a do-not-track signal, we do not recognize or respond to these signals.
