Cookie technology captures summary – not individual – information on visitor use patterns.  This is a computer code that tracks “traffic” so that we can determine how effective the web site is in meeting informational or service needs.  A cookie contains no personal identifying information and the Foundation acquires no knowledge of an internet visitor’s browsing path once they have exited our web site.  Apart from providing a performance measure, the data collected by the cookie is otherwise meaningless.

If your personal information changes or you no longer desire service, the Foundation will correct, update or remove the information.
