Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers we transfer to your device’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Site and Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at our Site and Service. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
- Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your device when you close your browser or turn off your device. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Site and Services. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity after you have logged in as you move through our Site and Services.
- Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device after closing your browser or turning off your device. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity.
7.Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can change your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Site and Services who disable cookies can browse certain areas of the Site, but some features may not function properly.
8.Third-Party Analytics. We use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics, to evaluate the usage of our Site. We use these tools to help us improve our Site’s performance and user experiences.

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer. You can do so by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
