Website Administration and Statistics

This site captures non-personal information in its web server log files. A log file typically includes your web request, IP address, browser type, browser language and the date and time of your request to help diagnose problems with the web server, improve our services and maintain the security of our systems. This information is also used for analyzing trends and statistics on an aggregated basis only and it will not contain personally identifiable information.

This site also contains advertisements served by third-party partners (predominantly Google) that may also use cookies to compile information about where you saw the advertisements and determine which ones are clicked. This information allows advertisers to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. You can find out more about how Google uses data sent by your browser when you use its partners’ sites or apps. The owner of this site does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by third party advertisers and partners.

If you prefer not to have cookies, you can choose to disable or selectively turn off certain cookies in your browser settings. You will still be able to browse most content on this website.
