The Site may utilize "cookies," which are text files placed on your computer that web pages on the Site may use to store data on your computer or send data to our web server. We may use cookie data to "recognize" you when you visit the Site in the future, to troubleshoot how the Site operates, and for internal analysis of how people use the Site.
