Privacy Policy


This policy describes the use of any personal information and cookies collected when you use our site.


What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a web site’s computer and stored on your computer. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser typically only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites set cookies in order to track online traffic flows or to record information about your online preferences.

Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Some services, such as taking a CE course, require users to allow cookies. Services that require cookies will require them to persist only during the current browser session, and will always be set and retrieved from the same site. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
