We only use "cookies" as described in this
Section. A "cookie" is a piece of information that our Web site sends to your

bit of information is erased when you close your current browser window. If you
come to our site from one of our business partners, our Web server may also send
your browser a temporary cookie that reflects an "origination code" for that
business partner. We use this information for statistical and marketing purposes.

cookies is when you visit our Web site and request documentation or a response
from us. When you are filling out a form you may be given the option of having

time in filling out forms and/or revisiting our Web site. We only send this type
of cookie to your browser when you have clicked on the box labeled "Please
remember my profile information" when submitting information or communicating
with us. Even if you choose to receive this type of cookie, you can always set
your browser to notify you when you receive any cookie, giving you the chance to
