Data collection by conversion tracking

A conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an advertisement delivered by Google where we have opted in to conversion tracking. This site may use a cookie to measure advertising performance on search and advertising service providers such as Google and its AdSense partner’s websites.

Generally, these cookies expire within 30 days and are not personally identifiable.

We use the information collected to provide aggregate marketing statistics.  We are able to see the total number of users who have clicked on our ad and proceeded to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag, but do not have access to personally identifying information.

If you want to disable conversion tracking cookies, you can set your browser to disable cookies.

Further information

We cannot guarantee that our Services would contain all the information you need to answer all your questions, even though we have taken reasonable care in compiling the content of our Services.
