by technology. For example, when accessing the Internet, each computer is
assigned a unique identifier called an IP address that identifies where information
is coming from or where information should be sent. Along with your IP address,
we collect information regarding which pages you visit on our site, from
which page you came to our site, and the software you use to visit our site
and its configuration. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with
our server, and to administer our Web site. When you use any shopping cart
functions that may be included on our websites, your IP address is used to
help identify you and your shopping cart and to gather broad demographic
information. None of that information is associated with you as an individual.
A Cookie is a collection of information stored on your computer that usually
includes a username and the current date and time or other user specific information
that helps us tailor our websites to your interests. Your web browser (Netscape,

computer or to refuse all cookies. However, not accepting or disabling cookies
from our websites may prevent you from accessing certain parts of our websites.
Information You Provide

this information to us. If you choose to share personal information with
us we will use the information only for the purposes you have authorized.
Our site uses online surveys to ask you for information and/or forms for you
to request information, products, and services. These online surveys or forms
may ask you to provide personal information like contact information (like
home or email addresses or phone numbers), unique identifiers (like Social
Security numbers), and financial information (like account or credit card numbers).
Contact information from these forms is used to respond to requests for information,
send orders to you, or to contact you when necessary or requested. You may
opt-out of receiving future mailings (see the Choice/Opt-out section below).
Financial information that is collected is used to bill you for products and
services you have requested. Unique identifiers (such as Social Security numbers)
are collected from Web site visitors to verify the your identity and for use
as account numbers in our record system.

designated or indefinite period of time, but we will not disclose the information

or federal law, in support of University sponsored programs or activities,
or to protect the integrity, safety and security of our websites. (see below
