We may also include web beacons in marketing email messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and links contained within clicked on. Again this information is used to improve our services.
• You have a choice with respect to cookies. By modifying your internet browser preferences, you have the ability to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our site. Please understand that if cookies are turned off, you may not be able to view certain parts of this site that may enhance your visit. If you turn off cookies, the web beacon will no longer be able to track your specific activity.
