What are cookies and web beacons?
A "cookie" is a computer file that acts as an identification card for your computer. When you visit our sites, unique cookies are placed on your browser. The purpose of the cookie is to distinguish your browser from all other browsers that visit our sites.
“Web beacons” interact with cookies to “read” the information contained on them. When you visit our sites, web beacons will recognize specific cookies that have been placed on your browser. Being able to instantly recognize your browser, helps us serve you better. Recognizing your browser does not mean that we can identify you by reference to your name, email or other specifically identifiable personal information, because the cookie is only the browser's identification card; it is not your personal identification card.
