Our electronic mailings always have a method for unsubscribing.
"Cookies" and website logging
Some of our Web Sites will send a "cookie," a small text file, to your computer. This allows us to recognize your computer the next time you visit, without bothering you with another request to register. And, if you use an online “shopping cart,” cookies allow us to keep track of the products you purchase. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please refer to the "Help" file of your Internet Browser to learn how to either block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. To learn more about cookies we encourage you to visit http://cookiecentral.com/c_concept.htm. If you visit our Web sites to browse, read, or download information, we collect and store some "visitor information" from you, such as the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, the date and time you access our Web site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Web site. We use this information to measure the traffic on our Web Sites and to help us make our Web Sites more useful.
Safeguarding the information you share with us
