In addition to the information you provide when you use our Website, AAHI uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our Website. For example, we may use technology to track information such as how many visitors access our Website, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view.

Cookies keep track of non-personal information such as the URL that you came from and go to next, your navigation through the Website (for example, the advertisements that you click on), the browser and operating system that you use, and your IP address. Cookies do not damage your computer. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to decide if you want to accept it or not. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. At the present time, AAHI only uses temporary or “session” cookies. These cookies expire when your browser window is closed.
