Information Collected Via Technology
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. For example, we, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access ADVKEN to assist with ad targeting.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with ADVKEN. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our services offered through ADVKEN, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of ADVKEN may not work properly, and you will not be able to receive our services.
