We may place a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. Cookies allow us to track where you travel on our site and what you look at. They also permit us to ensure that visitors are not repeatedly sent the same banner ads. If you are a Member, they allow us to customize the content we send to you. Most web browsers can be set to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with an opportunity to refuse that cookie. Refusing a cookie will not interfere with your use of this site, although it is possible some parts of the site will not function properly if you do so. The cookie itself does not contain any Personally Identifiable Information, although it will enable us to relate a visitor's use of our site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to us.
While you are on the web site, or while you are otherwise viewing the web site content, you may encounter Web beacons, which may come from Tonibrattin.com or from third parties, such as advertisers or content providers. A Web beacon, which is sometimes also called a Web bug or "clear gif," is a small graphic image in a Web page, a Web-based document or an e-mail message, which generally allows the party that set the Web beacon to monitor certain information about the viewer of the web page, Web-based document or e-mail message, and may allow access to certain cookies. Web beacons are usually invisible to the user, because they are very small (generally 1-by-1 pixel). However, in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a Web page, including an advertisement, can act as a Web beacon. Web beacons typically collect the URL of the page the Web beacon comes from, the type of browser requesting the Web beacon, the IP address of the computer that the Web beacon is sent to and the time the Web beacon was viewed. We do not have control over Web beacons used by third parties and do not have access to whatever information they may collect.
We also collect aggregate information (i.e., not personally identifiable to specific users) through our site relating to usage and/or traffic levels on our site, e.g., the total number of users who visit our site and/or a particular page on our site. We also collect and analyze aggregate demographic information. Further, aggregate information is helpful to us for improving the services we offer and for marketing purposes. We may share aggregate information, which does not personally identify you, with our advertisers, business partners or other companies to provide more relevant services and advertising to you.
