3. Obtaining, Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information.
A. Gathering Non-Personally-Identifying Information.
Like most site operators, we may gather Non-Personally-Identifying Information from you of the sort that web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available.

A â€œBeaconâ€ is an object that is embedded in a web page. It is usually invisible to you but allows site operators to check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email communication. We may place Beacons on pages of this Site and in emails we send to you.
Beacons may be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.
This Site may include third-party advertising, links to other sites, and other content from third party businesses. These third-party sites, businesses, and advertisers, or advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use Beacons and Cookies to measure the effectiveness of their ads, personalize or optimize advertising content and to track users who link from their respective sites to this Site.
