Personal identification information

This Site may collect personal identification information from Readers in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Readers visit our site, subscribe to emails we send through MailChimp and Feedburner, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site.

Web browser cookies

Our Site may use “cookies” to enhance Reader experience. A Reader’s web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them.
