Site Traffic Monitoring
During every visit to our website, we will collect non-identifiable information by tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on an aggregate basis. IP addresses do not track personal information about our guests but do allow us to monitor how our website is being used. This information is shared with our website providers to assist in improving our website.
When a user interacts with our website, “session cookies” are used to collect information anonymously and to track user patterns. They do not collect personal information, only a numeric identifier and the data collected is only available during the active session. We use this anonymous information to improve our website and provide seamless navigation.
