We will not share the personal information you provide except (a) as otherwise permitted under this Privacy Policy (b) if it is for the purpose(s) you provided it; (c) with your consent; (d) as may be required by law or as we think necessary to protect our company or others from injury (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena, in response to a law enforcement agency request, or when we believe that someone is causing, or about to cause, injury to or interference with the rights or property of another); (e) with other persons or companies or affiliated or related organizations with whom we contract to carry out internal Site operations or our business activities (for example, third-party contractors (f) and/or to notify you when we make changes to one of our subscriber agreements or this policy.

This block of data can be anything, a unique user ID generated by the server, the current date and time, the IP Address of where the browser is logged onto the net or any other chunk of data that you want.

After a browser receives a cookie it will then send that cookie to the server that set it whenever it is appropriate and required/requested. The browser will only send the cookie to the server that originally set it. This means that the server can't tell if your browser has cookies that other sites have sent.

We use cookies to store your settings and preferences, and to deliver information most relevant to you. These cookies cannot be turned off in our system, as they are needed to deliver the correct information. You can set your browser to block cookies, but then some parts of the site will not work.

We believe cookies to be harmless, and will eventually be to everyone's benefit (end users, as well as site builders) from The World Wide Web Consortium: "Cookies cannot be used to steal information about you or your computer system."
