    Cookies and Web Beacons

    ALLIED Web Sites may utilize a web site technology known as “cookies” primarily to enhance your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that contains information sent by a web site that is saved on your hard drive by your computer’s browser. Cookies can either be permanent (i.e., they remain on your computer until you delete them) or temporary (i.e., they last only until you close your browser). Cookies store information that a web site may need to personalize your experience and to gather web site statistical data, such as which web pages you visit, what material you download, your Internet provider’s domain name and country, and the addresses of web sites you visited immediately before and after visiting a particular web site. ALLIED Web sites use cookies to collect and store your preferences for viewing the ALLIED Web sites, such as whether you disable a particular function, so that you will not have to disable the same function on following visits. The cookie information may also be used to detect and resolve web site problems and to assist with customer support concerns.

    In addition, ALLIED Web Sites utilize cookies to provide a unique identifier to your computer. This helps us to generate statistics regarding usage of ALLIED Web Sites, such as the percentage of repeat visitors. In situations where ALLIED has obtained Personal Information, the unique identifiers may be matched with such Personal Information. In addition, when you submit information to any ALLIED Web Site the information may be stored in a cookie on our computer and in files generated by third party vendors that assist in the processing and fulfillment of any services offered by ALLIED Web Sites.

    We may also use "web beacons" (also referred to as single-pixel gifs, tracking bugs, tracking pixels, pixel tags, or clear gifs) that monitor your use of our sites. Web beacons (or web bugs) are small strings of code that provide a method for delivering graphic image on a web page for the purpose of transferring data, such as their (Internet Protocol) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears, the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the page on which the web beacon appears, the time the page containing the web beacon was viewed, the types of browser that fetched the web beacon and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server. When corresponding with you via HTML capable e-mail, web beacons let us know whether you received and opened our e-mail.

    By accepting this Privacy Policy, you specifically agree to our use of cookies and web beacons as described herein. You may adjust your browser to reject cookies from us or from any other web site. Additionally, by setting your web browser to display HTML e-mails as text only, you may be able to prevent the use of some web beacons. Please consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information. However, certain areas of ALLIED Web Sites can only be accessed in conjunction with cookies or similar devices and you should be aware that disabling cookies or similar devices might prevent you from accessing some of our content
