Information that we derive independently from your use of the site
Aside from any information you may actively disclose to us, there is other less
obvious information that we might obtain, as described below. We may use such information

Aggregate and related information
Our system automatically collects information about the pages that visitors view
on our Web site. We may use this aggregate information to understand how our members
as a group use the services we provide so that we can improve our Web site. Furthermore,
we may share such aggregate statistical information with our partners, affiliates
or other outside companies, but in doing so, it is not our practice to disclose

such information are as follows:
A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a
Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are widely used on
the Internet and have become an industry standard. Cookies enable user registration,
login and personalization, among other things. Although a cookie cannot identify
you personally, it can identify your computer. Your browser is most likely set up
to accept cookies automatically. If you would like to disable this feature, you

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer
whenever you begin service with an Internet Service Provider. We collect IP addresses
for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. Each
time you log onto our site and each time you request one of our pages, our server
logs your IP address. Although we log your session with us, we will not normally
link your IP address to anything that can enable us to identify you. However, we
can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to
enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service,
site, users or others.

the computer or operating system you are using such as the baud rate of your modem
or error messages you may have received. We may do so in order to fit our services

feedback solicitation purposes. In addition, from time to time, we may use your
information for unanticipated uses, such as notification of new services, announcements
and general communications. If our information practices materially change at some
time in the future, we will post such changes to the site before we use your data
for these new purposes. If you are concerned about how your information is used,

Security is a top priority for us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission
of your information from your Internet connection to our servers. We also take great
care to protect user information off line. Only authorized personnel handle your
data and our database servers have a backup system to prevent loss of data. Unfortunately,
no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure
and we will not be held liable should a third party illegally obtain your personal
information. While we have made a great effort to protect your personal information,
we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and
you do so at your own risk. Our policy does not extend to anything that is inherent
in the operation of the Internet and therefore beyond our control and is not to
be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
