This is how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit
to our web site. The information we receive depends upon what you do when
visiting our site. If you visit our site to read or download information,
we may collect and store only the following information about you: the
name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example,
aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account); the date
and time you access our site; and the Internet address of the web site

You may also decide to send us personally-identifying information, for

we do not sell or rent that information to third parties. You should be
aware, however, that others may access such information and use it, though
any such use would be without our consent. We want to be very clear: We
will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you
visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us.

otherwise cause damage or impede access to this our site. Information
gathered by our security software may be used to assist official law
enforcement investigations and pursuant to any required legal process.
As a rule, we do not use Web cookies on our sites. We may, however, use a
temporary cookie in order to complete certain secure transactions.
