Do Not Track Requests
This Site does not respond to “do not track” requests. All traffic is treated as equal and processed the same in that we will track users and Registered Users use of the Site and/or Services as well as the webpage that the user or Registered User came from before reaching the Site and the webpage to which he or she went after leaving the Site.

From time to time, we may participate in or use advertising networks, such as third party advertising servers, advertising agencies, technology vendors and research firms. We may use these third-party advertising networks for marketing, advertising and promotional purposes, as well as to serve advertisements to you. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer’s interests and preferences, which enables their computers to deliver advertisements directly targeted to the consumer’s specific interests. This practice is often referred to as “online behavioral advertising.” For example, a third-party advertising network might collect the type of internet browser you use, the type of computer operating system you use, the domain name of a website you visit, whether or not you visit specific pages of this Site and other websites, the location of your internet service provider’s presence, the date and time of a visit to a website and other interactions between you and websites.
