(4) Do you use tracking cookies?

Yes, we use tracking cookies to help personalize your experience on our website. By using our website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies. A cookie consists of a piece of text sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. They usually allow you to change your settings to reject the use of cookies. Blocking cookies, however, is not recommended as it will have a negative impact upon the usability of this website.

(5) Data Retention & Opting Out

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide to you the services that you have subscribed to.
