What are cookies and how are they used?

  1. Cookies are pieces of information a Web Site transfers to a user’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make surfing the web easier for You by saving Your preferences and tracking Your online habits, traffic patterns, and making sure You do not see the same advertisement too often.

Use of IP Address

  1. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer whenever it is connected to the Internet.  The Owner also logs IP addresses, or the location of computers on the Internet.  The Owner collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of the Web Site. The Owner does not ordinarily link IP addresses to personal information, which means that Your session may remain anonymous. However, the Owner cannot guarantee that this will always be the case. For example, it may be necessary to identify a particular user when it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Terms and Conditions or to protect our service Web Site, customers or other interests.
