Collection of Tracking Information to Improve Online Information and Services

When anyone visits our website, we use tracking technology to collect certain non-personally identifiable and aggregate information to help us analyze and improve the usefulness of the information and services provided through our website. “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” means information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with anonymous “usage data”, such as the number of unique visitors we receive, what pages are visited most often, and navigation preferences and characteristics of our visitors.

In order for you to make an informed decision about whether to use and navigate our website, we are providing you with the following information about how we collect and use Non-Personally Identifiable and aggregate information.


A “Cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser when you link to that website. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the website can repeat users, track usage patterns, and better serve you when you return to that site. For instance, Cookies may conveniently assist you in not having to log in a password more than once for a site. Cookies can also save you from re-keying specific information when making multiple entries or searches. Cookies may also be required for a user to gain access to secured areas or interactive service platforms of our website. Access to these secured areas will not be granted if your computer browser is set to reject Cookies.

The Cookie does not extract other Personal Information about you. We use Cookies to optimize your online experience and support the delivery of information to you. We do not store your Personal Information in Cookies.

The Help menu on your browser will tell you how to stop your browser from accepting new Cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new Cookie or how to disable Cookies altogether.

If you turn off Cookies, you will still be able to access your account and information, but you may not be able to use some of the features on our website.

We use other tracking technology to personalize your visit to our website. This other tracking technology may include, but is not limited to, tracking beacons, JavaScript tracking, log files, and session tracking. We use these methods to learn how we can improve our website, interactive services platforms, or campaigns. For instance, we can use IP addresses to analyze trends, such as site usage, and administer the website. When we use tracking technology in email, it tells us when you opened the email so that we can understand how effective our messages are to you. Information collected through the use of other tracking technology does not identify you personally.
