Certain optional demographic data (such as gender or income level) may also be requested and we would encourage users to provide such information in order to give a user a more personalized experience on the Website. 

Cookies: A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user's hard drive containing information about the user. We may use cookies to allow users to more efficiently use the Website. For example, by setting a cookie from the Website, a user of a Website service that requires a password would not have to log in a password more than once during a session, thereby saving time while using the Website. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users as they visit different sections of the Website, thereby giving us useful insight about how Website services can be improved. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on the Website. Once the user closes the browser, a cookie simply terminates.

Revising Personal Information and/or Registered Services: If a registered user's personal information changes (such as an email address), we will make a best effort to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data from our records. Registered users will also be given the opportunity to "unsubscribe" from a registered service (such as email newsletters). Users of the Website are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that may require an outside party.
