Collection of Information via Automated tracking mechanism
Our site uses “cookies” and other tracking technologies. Cookies enable us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to sign in repeatedly. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. If a user’s system is idle for a defined time, the cookie will expire, forcing the user to sign in again to continue their session. This prevents unauthorized access to the user’s information while they are away from their computer.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the Site.

2.4 One type of non-personally identifiable information that we collect (either directly, through the use of “cookies” or through the use of a third-party tracking system) is the IP address of the computer making the request. This IP address may be associated with your personal computer, or with a computer used by the portal through which you accessed the Internet, such as your Internet Service Provider or company network. IP addresses are not linked to Personal Information.
2.5 We also gather information about (1) the areas that users visit on the Sites, and (2) the links that users select from within the Sites to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online. HumGenie uses such information in the aggregate to understand how website visitors (as a group) use the services and resources provided on our Sites.
