Additionally, when we transmit sensitive personal information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, data is encrypted using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) specified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) FIPS-197. Then we protect the information through the use of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
When you perform a search within our site, we may record information identifying you or linking you to the search performed. We may also record limited information associated with every search request made by you and use that information to, among other things, solve technical problems with the service and to calculate overall usage statistics. This information is used to help improve the site, analyze trends and administer the site. Some of our sites collect information about your hardware and software in order to provide a requested service.
