Our Use of Cookies

    Many Web sites now use "cookies" to provide useful features to their visitors by providing customizable and personalized services.

    A 'cookie' is a small data file that a Web site may send to your browser and that your browser may then store on your system. We use session cookies to simulate a continuous connection - cookies let us "remember" information about your preferences and passwords and allow you to move within our Service without reintroducing yourself. We also use cookies to allow you to access areas of our Web site that are limited to registered users, such as the My Account. We do NOT, however, use cookies to track the navigational habits of identified visitors. Furthermore, we do NOT allow other companies (third parties) to set cookies via our Web site.

    Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually refuse cookies, or selectively accept cookies, by adjusting the preferences in your browser. If you turn cookies off, there may be some features of our site that will not be available to you and some Web pages may not display properly. You can find information about how you can adjust your cookie setting at the following Web sites:

    Microsoft Internet Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/info/cookies.htm and
    Wikipedia: Magic cookie.

    Your browser software can be set to reject all cookies, or to ask you if you would like to accept or decline a cookie from a particular site before it is set. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the Help section of the toolbar. You should know, however, that if you reject a cookie, certain functions and conveniences of a site may not work properly.
