    The information we collect from you from visiting our web site is limited.  We log your IP address in order to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Web site and track usage statistics.  Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same.  It would be extremely difficult for us to identify you through your IP address, and we make no attempt to do so.  If you reached our site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site, we may log that information.

    We may place a small "cookie" file on your computer's hard drive.  A cookie may contain information that allows us to track your path through our Web site and to determine whether you have visited us before.  Unless you register with us or purchase from us, the cookie contains no personally identifiable information.  We may use cookies to help us understand how visitors use our site, and to help us to improve our site.  You may elect not to accept cookies by changing settings in your browser.
