Cookies. A cookie is a file saved to your computer or device that may be used to recognize our users when they return to our Sites, provide shopping cart reminders, collect usage information, remember user’s preferences, and provide customized versions of our Sites.

These companies may collect information about your visits to the Sites and other websites and your interaction with our advertising and other communications.
