This information is used by us and our business partners to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views and other statistics about visitors to this Website in general. We may also use this data to monitor site performance for systems administration purposes to make this Website easier and more convenient to use, and to report information in aggregate form to our service providers (e.g. how many visitors access this Website).
Cookies – This Website may use “cookies,” a technology that installs information on a website user’s computer to permit the website to recognize future visits using that computer. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of this Website.

Information, including personal information, may be stored locally on the device using mechanisms such as browser web storage. Please consult your device or client documentation on how to manage such local storage. If you use location-enabled products and services, you may be sending us location information.
