ARE COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES USED TO COLLECT PERSONAL DATA?
Yes, cookies and other technologies, such as web beacons, may be used to gather information about our website. A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer’s hard drive by a website server. Cookies can’t be used to install viruses or run programs on your computer. Cookies can only be read by the web server that issued them to you. Cookies are used to make it easier for you to use the internet. A cookie tells the Web server that you’ve returned to a particular page. For example, if you register with Front Page SEO, a cookie allows Front Page SEO to remember your information on subsequent visits. This makes it easier to record your personal information, such as billing and shipping addresses. The information you previously gave can be retrieved when you return to the FPS website. This allows you to access the customized features easily. A web beacon allows the party who set it to collect information such as the browser used to request the web beacon, the IP address and the time it was viewed. Although web beacons may be small and inconspicuous to the user, they can collect information about any electronic image viewed within a web page, email or other electronic media, including HTML-based content. Web beacons can count web visitors or monitor how users navigate the site. We also may include web beacons within email messages to track how many messages were opened, forwarded, or acted upon.
