Using "cookies"

 

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information, for instance, to help remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, and thus help improve customer service. Cookies are also used to help compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction which can better site experiences and tools in the future.

Third-party service providers may be contracted to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information except to help conduct and improve the business.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some services will not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone.
