How do we use cookies?

We use "cookies" to store specific information about you and track your visits to the Site, either through a compute or via a mobile device. It is not uncommon for websites to use cookies to enhance identification of their visitors.

 

In addition, we use cookies to manage the security of our Site, to gather information about usage by users; to research visiting patterns and conduct interest-based advertising; to assist our partners to track user visits to the

Site and process orders; and to track progress and participation in promotions.

 

For these additional purposes identified above, you can determine if and how a cookie will be accepted by configuring the privacy setting of the browser you are using to access the Site or the privacy setting of your mobile

device. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information. If you adjust the privacy setting in the
