We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, and/or clear gifs to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that detail their viewing preferences. Collected information is sometimes tied to the users’ personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve the content of the Website for the user. This profile is used to tailor a user's visit to our Website and to direct pertinent marketing promotions to them.

We DO NOT sell or lease any aggregate non-personably identifiable data or personal information about our visitors with or to any third party companies or individuals.

The Website may contain links to various other web sites.
