Examples of this type of information includes the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using, the date and time you accessed this site, the Internet protocol address of the individual computer (or proxy server) making the request, and the Internet address of the site from which you may have linked to this site.
The information we collect is used for internal review and is then discarded, used to improve the content of our web page, and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
All information collected by way of server log files is used in aggregate form only, and may be analyzed for trends and statistics.
