We use cookies. A 'cookie' is a small data file that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit certain websites. We may use cookies supplied by your browser or by third-party add-ins. We use session identification cookies to collect, store and sometimes track information for statistical purposes to improve the services we provide. We also use a persistent cookie to save your settings and to provide customizable and personalized services (including, without limitation to hold your shopping cart information). A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's 'help' file.

Additionally, be aware that if you visit other websites you may be required to accept cookies. Our business partners may also use their own cookies on our website. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them. The cookies track link-in and link-out traffic to better understand how other websites may be linking to, or referencing the Website. We may also track page hits within our Website. We collect and share this information only in aggregated, non-personally identifiable format. For example, we may track how many users viewed a particular product page during a given month.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs/Pixel Tags). Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are placed on a user’s hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on webpages. We may use clear gifs to track information for statistical purposes to improve the services we provide. Our use of clear gifs will not enable third parties to access any of your personally identifiable information. Additionally, be aware that advertisers and partners may also use their own clear gifs. We do not control use of these and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.
