We may utilize “cookies,” web beacons and other similar technologies on our websites. We may use first and/or third-party “browser” or “HTTP” cookies, which are unique text files that may be used for data analysis and enable our websites to tailor information for the visitor. We may use browser cookies for purposes such as to personalize your experience on our website, to remember you when you register for products or services, for fraud prevention, or to track visits to our websites. We also may use “web beacons” (also referred to as pixel tags, clear gifs or other terms) or similar technologies to collect information such as how long you remain on a particular page.

Third parties, including our service providers or marketing partners, may collect information about you as a visitor to our website over time and/or across different websites when you use our website. This information often is aggregate data or individual information that is tied to a browser or device rather than specific identifiers such as your name and address, but some of this information might be considered to be personally identifiable under some federal or state laws.

We may use some or all of the collected personal information for our business purposes, including verifying your identity, fraud prevention, communicating with you, product development and enhancement, advertising and marketing our products and services, transacting business with you and processing your requests, compliance with law and legal process, and prosecuting and defending legal claims.
