Do we use ‘cook­ies’?
Yes. Cook­ies are small files that a site or its ser­vice provider trans­fers to your computer’s hard dri­ve through your Web brows­er (if you allow) that enables the site’s or ser­vice provider’s sys­tems to rec­og­nize your brows­er and cap­ture and remem­ber cer­tain infor­ma­tion. For instance, we use cook­ies to help us remem­ber and process the items in your shop­ping cart. They are also used to help us under­stand your pref­er­ences based on pre­vi­ous or cur­rent site activ­i­ty, which enables us to pro­vide you with improved ser­vices. We also use cook­ies to help us com­pile aggre­gate data about site traf­fic and site inter­ac­tion so that we can offer bet­ter site expe­ri­ences and tools in the future.

      Under­stand and save user’s pref­er­ences for future vis­its.
You can choose to have your com­put­er warn you each time a cook­ie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cook­ies. You do this through your brows­er (like Inter­net Explor­er) set­tings. Each brows­er is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the cor­rect way to mod­i­fy your cook­ies.
If you dis­able cook­ies off, some fea­tures will be dis­abled It won’t affect the user’s expe­ri­ence that make your site expe­ri­ence more effi­cient and some of our ser­vices will not func­tion prop­er­ly.

COPPA (Chil­dren Online Pri­va­cy Pro­tec­tion Act)
When it comes to the col­lec­tion of per­son­al infor­ma­tion from chil­dren under 13, the Children’s Online Pri­va­cy Pro­tec­tion Act (COPPA) puts par­ents in con­trol. The Fed­er­al Trade Com­mis­sion, the nation’s con­sumer pro­tec­tion agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what oper­a­tors of web­sites and online ser­vices must do to pro­tect children’s pri­va­cy and safe­ty online.
