Like many — perhaps most – other Web sites, our website makes use of log files. That’s partly for security, so we can identify any problems before they occur. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and a number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
