6. Nonpersonal Information Collected by Site from Users. If you use our Site without registering, then the only information we will collect from you will be certain nonpersonal information obtained through the use of cookies or web beacons.

a. Cookies1. A cookie (also known as a tracking cookie, browser cookie, and HTTP cookie) is a small piece of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser. A cookie consists of one or more name-value pairs containing bits of information such as user preferences, shopping cart contents, the identifier for a server-based session, or other data used by websites the user visits. The information collected by cookies helps us generate advertising, content, and newsletters for our users. Cookies also allow us to statistically monitor the number of users visiting our site (“traffic”) and how many people open our e-mails. We may use cookie information to target advertisements to users or to determine if certain advertisement is popular with or selected by our users.

b. Web Beacons2. We also may use a Web beacon to collect non-personal information about our users. A Web beacon is used in combination with cookies. A Web beacon is often a transparent graphic image that is placed on a website or in an e-mail. It is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website or sending an e-mail. When the HTML code for the Web beacon points to a website to retrieve the image, it can simultaneously pass along information such as the IP address of the computer that retrieved the image, the time the Web beacon was viewed and for how long, the type of browser that retrieved the image and previously set cookie values.

 Web beacons are typically used to monitor the activity of a website. You can detect a Web beacon by viewing the source code of a Web page and looking for any IMG tags that load from a different server than the rest of the site. You can turn off the browser's cookies to prevent Web beacons from tracking your activity. The Web beacon will still account for an anonymous visit, but your unique information (your usage patterns, name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and other similar information collected on the website) will not be recorded. Unless it is authorized by law.

• The information collected by Web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site (“traffic”) and how many of our users are using or visiting the websites of our advertisers and sponsors. Web beacons also help us monitor how many people open our e-mails.

c. Third Party Cookies and Web Beacons. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies and Web beacons by our Site only and does not cover the use of cookies or Web beacons used by any advertisers on our Site. Third-party advertisers may use information (including your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites to provide advertisements from other websites about goods and services of potential interest to you.

d. Third-Party Ad Serving. We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Site.
