4. Cookies.We, or our service providers, may also use “cookies” to track and gather certain information when you use the Website. A cookie is a small text file that contains information and is either stored temporarily in your browser (a session cookie) or placed on your computer’s hard drive for a longer, predetermined length of time (a persistent cookie). The cookie is then sent back to the Website on your subsequent visits. The information gathered by these cookies is typically "non-personally identifiable" information like your IP address, operating system, browser type, and suspected geographic location that is anonymized and aggregated with data from other website visitors. By using the Website, you are giving your consent to our and our service providers’ use of cookies to track and gather information.

We may retain other companies and individuals as Our service providers to perform functions on Our behalf – for example, e-mail marketing firms or client relationship management companies. These third parties may be provided with access to Your personally identifiable information, or may collect information about you and your use of the Website on their own.

We may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, We deem necessary, in Our sole discretion, to governmental authorities or private parties in order to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, investigation or governmental request.
