Aggregate Information:

We may collect information that is not personal information about users to measure traffic on the site.  This information is collected on an aggregate basis through the use of a “cookie” or small text file placed on the user’s hard drive by the user’s Internet browser.  The cookie allows us to track the number of hits or visits to various pages on the site.  The cookie is used only during a single connection to the site, and is not used to track user activity after leaving the site.  The cookie is permanently disabled when the user exits the site, and information about individual users is not collected, saved or distributed to others by us except as provided for in this policy.  Aggregate information helps us understand users’ needs, improve the site, and demonstrate to others the volume and nature of site traffic.  Aggregate information may be shared with third parties as described in the section “Information Collection and Use”.
