It is your right to choose not to provide certain information (for example your name, email address or IP address) but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Web Site’s features such as a subscription to the newsletter or contacting us.

What are cookies? The Web Site uses standard technology called “cookies” which are small data files or strings of text that are transferred to your computer (or other Internet-accessing device) when you visit the Web Site and allow your browser to accept cookies. Cookies automatically identify your web browser to the Web Site whenever you visit the Web Site and may make navigating and using the Web Site easier for you. Additionally, accepting cookies may allow you to, among other things, personalize your experience on the Web Site.
Currently, we use Google Analytics for aggregated, anonymized website traffic analysis. In order to track your session usage, Google drops a cookie (_ga) with a randomly-generated ClientID in your browser. This ID is anonymized and contains no identifiable information like email, phone number, name, etc. However, Google Analytics does install persistent cookies which provides us with a Persistent ID which is considered PII under the California Consumer Privacy Act. We also send Google your IP Address.
There are a variety of types of cookies and Company may from time to time use any of them. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Web Site. Persistent cookies can be removed through the settings in your web browser. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. A secure cookie is used when you are accessing the site using a secure https connection, which can be determined by the beginning of your web address. A third-party cookie is one that you can reset your web browser to refuse all such cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being sent or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information or visit https://www.ftc.gov/site-information/privacy-policy/internet-cookies.
