Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies
The APDUE Website uses cookie and web beacon technology. Cookies are short pieces of data generated by a web server that a website stores on a users computer. Certain pages on our Website may require the use of a cookie for purposes of keeping information you enter on multiple pages together. Cookies also enable us to collect certain non-identifiable information and customize our Website and offerings to your needs and provide you with a better online experience with us.
For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on APDUE Web sites, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable. This information is sometimes known as “clickstream data” and APDUE, its partners, affiliates, or others on APDUE’ behalf may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service.
In addition, cookies are used to:
● measure usage of various pages on our Website to help us make our information more pertinent to your needs and easy for you to access;
● identify and categorized the internet webpages from which the visitor came to the Website and observe their browsing patterns; and
● provide functionality such as online orders, APDUE Services and other functions that we believe would be of interest and value to you.

Web beacons are used in combination with cookies to help website operators understand how visitors interact with their websites. A web beacon is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a site. As opposed to cookies, which are stored on a users computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. These web beacons are not tied to personally identifiable information. The use of a web beacons allows the site to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the web beacon. It makes it easier to follow and record the activities of a recognized browser, such as the path of pages visited at a website. APDUE may use the information provided by web beacons to develop a better understanding of how the Websites users use the Website, and to facilitate those users interactions with the Website. APDUE may make the aggregate data obtained from web analytics (including from our third party analytics providers, if applicable) publicly available. If this data is made available, none of the information will be personally identifying information or potentially-personally identifying information.
Also, when we collect personal data from you in a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-personally identifiable information such as click-stream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner you can disable your cookies through your web browser.

All information collected in this way is aggregated so it is not personally identifiable to any specific individual.
