Cookie- means a small text file that a web server places on your computer’s hard drive via your web browser. A cookie may be stored on your computer as an anonymous tag. It identifies your computer, but not you personally, and may be used to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online “shopping cart” to keep track of items you wish to purchase. A “cookie” permits that information to be transmitted back to the web site’s computer (domain server), which is, in general, the only computer that can read the information contained in that file. Some cookies do not stay on your computer once you leave the Web site that you have visited (“session cookies), others remain on your computer after you leave a site (“permanent cookies”) which enables that Site to recognize your computer when you return to that site at a later time. Generally, cookies cannot search you hard disk for information or adversely affect your files. You can set your browser to “turn off” cookies, however, doing so may effect the functionality of the web-site. However, in most cases you should still be able to navigate sites without encountering difficulties.
Log File- means a system file that resides on a web server and identifies and collects a user’s internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and internet service provider (ISP). Log files also track referring/exit pages, describe platform type, provides date/time stamp, and counts the number of user clicks on a web-site. IP addresses and other information collected by log files may be linked to Personally Identifiable Information.
Non-Personal Information- means data about usage and service operation that is not associated with and cannot be tied back to a specific personal identity. Non-Personal Information may include the following: pages visited on a web-site; URLs visited from a web-site, the address of the last web page visited by a User before entering a web-site; browser type; platform configuration and the User’s IP address.
Identifiable Information- means any information (a) that identifies or
may be used to identify, contact, or locate the individual to whom such

an individual person can be derived. Personally Identifiable Information includes,
but is not limited to: name, home address or other mailing address, phone
number, fax number, email address, other contact information, social security
number, and credit card information. Additionally, to the extent unique
information, which by itself is not Personally Identifiable Information (a
personal profile, unique identifier, and/or IP address), is associated with
Personally Identifiable Information, then such unique information also will be
considered Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable
Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (i.e.,
without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not
connected to an identified individual.
