VII. Use of Cookies and Other Technologies

We may employ cookie technology to facilitate easier navigation within the Site, provide a higher level of convenience for users of the Site, and store and sometimes track information about the users of the Site.  Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a web site.  Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive.  Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages.  Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser to prevent the browser from accepting cookies.

We may also use Google AdWords and Facebook remarketing services to advertise on third party websites to previous visitors to our site. Remarketing allows us to optimize the delivery of ad content specifically targeted to a visitor’s interests, based on previous visits to the Site.  Using remarketing, we may advertise to previous visitors who have not completed a task on our Site, for example, using the contact form to make an inquiry.  We may also use remarketing in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, a site in the Google Display Network, or somewhere on Facebook. Third-party vendors, including Google and Facebook, use cookies to serve ads based on a visitor’s past visits to the Site.
