    automatically gather information from your browser (such as your IP
    addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit
    pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks) to
    analyze trends, administer the site, prevent fraud, track visitor
    movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic
    information. For example, we may log your IP address for system
    administration purposes. IP addresses are logged to track a user´s
    session. This gives us an idea of which parts of our site users are
    visiting. We do not share the log files externally
  • Cookies: We use “cookies” to keep track of some types of information
    while you are visiting our website or using our services. Cookies are
    very small files placed on your computer, and they allow us to count
    the number of
    visitors to our website and distinguish repeat visitors from new
    visitors. They also allow us to save user preferences and track user
    trends. We rely on cookies for the proper operation of our website;
    therefore if your browser is set to reject all cookies, the website will
    not function properly. Users who refuse cookies assume all
    responsibility for any resulting loss of functionality. We do not link the

    offerings, special discounts, event notifications, special third-party
    offers) purposes. E-mail messages we send you may contain code
    that enables our database to track your usage of the e-mails,
