Records of individual transactions conducted through the Services by any Registered Users may be associated with each Registered User’s individual account within our System.

Cookies. Like many online services, we may use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are small files placed on a user’s computer by a Web site in order to facilitate use of that Web site. For example, a cookie may contain information about your preferences, so that the Web site automatically complies with those preferences when you visit our Web site.
