The use of cookies is an industry standard – you will find them at most major Web sites.

A cookie lets the computer remember that you have registered, which allows us to speed up your activities at our site. Letting it do the record-keeping saves you the trouble of entering information over and over again during a single visit.

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you would prefer, you can set yours to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, it is possible that some parts of the site, such as shopping in the online store, will not function properly if you do so.

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. You should be aware that this site is not intended or designed to attract children. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent.
