PLEASE NOTE: We are a general audience site, and do not direct any of our content specifically at children under 13 years of age.

HOW WE GATHER INFORMATION FROM USERS
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, we may include registration, online surveys, and other online forums that ask users to provide their names, e-mail addresses, and other contact information.
Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
From time to time, we may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visits to our Site. We do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies, nor do we employ any data capture mechanisms on our website other than cookies. Cookies help us learn which areas of our site are useful and which areas need improvement. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience at our Site may be diminished and some features may not work as they were intended.
