Cookies and How They are Used

MERL collects visitor data to analyze and understand important trends and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

To achieve this end, MERL may utilize a technology referred to as "cookies" to ascertain various user habits such as the number of people who visit our Site, average browsing time, the number of time our Site is accessed, and how much of the Site is viewed. A cookie is a tiny data file transferred by a website to your computer's hard drive for the purpose of storing small amounts of information. MERL collects information in aggregate for statistical purposes to improve our Site and better personalize your user experience. MERL does not review information on individuals themselves. A cookie can be described as either "session" or "tracking." Session cookies are deleted after closing your browser. Tracking cookies remain on your computer until you delete them or upon expiration. MERL does not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information and does not combine information collected through cookies with other personally identifiable information in an attempt to expose your identity, screen name, e-mail address or any other personal information. You can set your browser to send notifications before you receive a cookie, which gives you the ability to decide whether or not to accept it. You can also choose to accept or refuse cookies by changing the settings on your browser.
