Such vendors are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties.

Do you use cookies and what do you do with the information collected?

Yes we use cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.

When subscriptions are launched on any of our sites, the site you are on will set a session cookie when you log into your personal account, so the site knows that you are logged in. The cookie is removed when you exit your browser. We also set a cookie on your guest's computer when they view one of our sessions. The cookie may be read if, at a future date, the person subscribes to one of our services. This allows us to measure non-personally identifiable statistics on how users learned about the service.

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. We may also use a cookie to make it easier for you to login and to help us determine site traffic patterns. You can refuse to accept this cookie and still use our web sites.

Personal information you voluntarily supply when obtaining information, purchasing services or interacting with our advertising may be shared with authorized resellers or affiliates of us.
