In addition, we use “cookies” on this website for Google Analytics and a few third-party plugins.  A “cookie” is the term given to describe a type of message that is given to a Web browser by a Web server. We use “cookies” to keep track of certain types of information while you are visiting our website or using our services. Among other things, they allow us to determine the number of website visitors, your approximate geographic location, and they make the distinction between repeat visitors and new visitors- allowing us to keep the website running faster upon revisiting. This is a very standard practice that supports our efforts to provide a functional experience for site visitors. To meet the requirements of the GDRP, we have added a “Cookies” consent plug-in for those individuals who visit the site from the EU and Switzerland.

*Note: You can adjust your browser to reject all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when websites set or access cookies. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of this website may become inaccessible or not function properly.

Finally, this website is secured with a SSL certificate. This enables data encryption on the internet and allows data to be transmitted securely from a web server to a browser. SSL Certificates are an essential part of the internet. They not only encrypt communication between your computer and the server where a website is located, but they also provide verification that a site is what it claims to be.

We may revise this Notice from time to time in response to changing legal, technical or business developments. If we make any material changes to this Notice, we will post the updated version here.
