We also automatically collect IP addresses and website usage information from you when you visit our website. This information helps us evaluate how our visitors use and navigate our website on an aggregate basis, including the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their visits.
Like many other websites, we use “cookies” to help us gather and store information about visitors to our websites.

A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. However, you may not be able to use all features of our site if cookies are disabled.
There are a number of ways to manage cookies. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.

If you use different computers you will need to ensure that each browser is adjusted to suit your cookie preferences.
How Your Information Is Used
We may use the personally identifiable information you provide for responding to your requests for information or to fulfill your order, including when you register for our Annual Conference. We also use this information you provide to contact you regarding one of our programs, such as our conference. In addition, we may, from time to time, use the information you provide to provide you with information about other programs, events, and services in which you may be interested. If you would like to request that we not use information we collect about you for such marketing purposes, please contact us at email@example.com.
