  2. Log data is gathered automatically while traversing the Site.

    Log data is sent by browsers and recorded by web servers as browsers navigate through web pages on the internet for a variety of technical purposes including debugging errors that may occur while loading a particular page or creating an audit trail in the case of intentional misuse of a website. The servers that host this Site and its pages also perform this logging. Commonly logged data includes:

    • IP addresses

    • Referring pages
    • The time and duration of page visits

  3. Cookies are generated by third party service providers.

    Cookies are small text files that can be used to record contextual data as a client accesses a web page. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. They can be used for beneficial purposes like helping to secure or personalize your session while accessing a website. They can also be used by website administrators to track visitation and usage of the different parts of their websites giving them insight into the level of interest generated by the various content that they provide. Cookies can also be used for more intrusive tracking purposes and are therefore a privacy concern.

    We do not use cookies of our own design on this Site. However, we do enlist the services of third-party service providers that use cookies such as Google Analytics, Google reCAPTCHA and Square payment services. The use of cookies by our service providers is not covered by our Privacy Policy. For more information about the privacy practices of these service providers please visit the following URLs.

    You can instruct your browser to refuse cookies or to require your approval when a cookie is being sent. However, disabling the use of cookies can impede your ability to access certain functionality on this and other websites. Also, blocking cookies does not prevent all forms of usage tracking. For instructions on how to block, filter or delete cookies in your browser see your browser's help menu.

    To specifically prevent your data from being factored into Google Analytics you can download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
