Information about Online Tracking
Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to websites you visit
that you do not want to have your online activity tracked.Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information
in connection with a single website. For these purposes tracking refers to collecting personally identifiable information
from consumers who use or visit a website or online service as they move across different websites over time.
How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. As a result this site is not yet set up to interpret
or respond to Do Not Track signals communicated by your browser. Even so, as described more fully throughout this Online Privacy
Statement, we limit our use and collection of your personal information.
For a description of Do Not Track protocols for browsers and mobile devices, or simply to learn more about the choices available to you,
you can visit the All About Do Not Track website: http://allaboutdnt.com
