We gather this information in a manner that provides for protection of personal privacy, and with an eye towards maintaining the security of all gathered information. This document details how we go about collecting, maintaining and storing your information.

Like most sites, we keep a running record of what pages are requested on our site. Our web server logs contain information about what pages are most popular, and how many pages are viewed in a given time period.

This session identifier uniquely identifies the user for the duration of each session and then expires. No identifying information can be tied to this identifier once the session has ended (sessions expire after approximately 20 minutes of inactivity, or when a client closes his or her browser completely). This is known as a non-persistent or session cookie.
