Cookies: Like most Web Sites, the Web Site makes use of browser "cookies." Cookies are pieces of information that a Web Site either transfers to your computer's hard drive or stores temporarily in your computer's memory for record-keeping purposes. The Web Site only sets temporary cookies, also known as session cookies, which expire when you close your browser session. These session cookies are used for internal purposes, and are used for (1) facilitating the transmission of a communication, including your ability to navigate the Web Site; or (2) where the cookie is essential to provide the service requested by you, the Authorized User. For example, the cookies identify you as an Authorized User and allow you to navigate through the Web Site without having to re-enter your user name and password before accessing each web page. The Web Site does not save personally identifiable information in these session cookies, but each session cookie contains unique identification number(s) that track a particular user’s actions through his or her use of the Web Site during a particular browser session, which includes recording data such as search queries, asset downloads, asset displays, and site navigation. In addition, our web servers log the identification number(s) contained in the session cookies. These identification number(s), which track your use and navigation of the Web Site, are linked in our database(s) to your identity (your personally identifiable information) by our web servers.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you decline to accept Company cookies, you will not be able to use the Web Site.
