We use cookies to notify you that you are a customer or interested in our services and products. Most browsers allow you to instruct the browser to prevent the use of cookies. If you change this feature, some aspects of our online services (e.g. the shopping cart) may not work correctly. We have relationships with third parties who may obtain non-personal information directly from the cookies placed by our online services on your computer to help analyze our business and customers.

Our Online Services may also use a common web technology called "Action Tags" to anonymously track purchase, usage and other web activity information. Action tags can be used to provide data to third parties for tracking purposes. However, our online services do not use action tags to collect or transmit personal information. In addition, third parties may set their own cookies and tags through our online services (e.g. through interest-based advertising). We do not control such third parties or their privacy practices.
