The Non-Personally-Identifying Information
Like a large number of other websites, this site does collect data which does not reveal your identity. This data is usually made available by the web browser. This data includes:
- The type of browser you are using to visit the website, examples include Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, etc.
- Your language preference.
- The site that referred you to our website.
- The date and time of the visit.
The goal of collecting the non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how you and other users use this website. The information will also help us improve your experience on the website. For example, when we determine your language preference, we will display the website content in that language the next you visit.

A cookie is a string of information that a website may store on a visitor’s browser. The browser will provide this string of information to the website every time the visitor accesses the website. Cookies are harmless. They will not correct your crucial data such as your bank account details, your credit card details, or even your physical location. They are used to help enhance your experience. For example, if a website requires you to log in to access its services, it can be tedious to keep logging in when you return to the website. To eliminate the need to log in, the website will store a cookie on your website that will remind it you already logged in before.
