Use of "cookies" or other data collection tools

A cookie is a file that a web server may place on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are commonly used by websites to improve the user experience. Many cookies last only through a single website session, or visit. Others may have an expiration date, or may remain on your computer until you delete them.

We may use cookies for a number of purposes - for example, to maintain continuity during a user session, to gather data about the usage of our websites for research and other purposes, to store your preferences for certain kinds of information and marketing offers, to store a user name so that you do not have to provide this information every time you return to our website, or to gather and study visitor traffic patterns on our websites to make it even more rewarding for new and returning users as well as to study the effectiveness of our client communications.

Our cookies will track only your activity relating to your online activity on a website, and will not track your other Internet activity. Our cookies do not gather personally identifiable information. You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not be able to use certain of our online Products and Services or website features.

We use the cookie information gathered by these companies in the same manner as stated above.

In addition to the information we collect from cookies, we also obtain information that you provide to us online - for example, when you submit an application or otherwise communicate with us.
