This general information is used only in the aggregate, much like television ratings. This information helps us identify popular areas of our site as well as areas that could use refinement, so that we can keep content on the site fresh and relevant to our users' interests. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on this data. We do not collect any personally identifiable information from you except when you expressly volunteer it under special circumstances described below, such as entering a contest.

They DO NOT pose any threat to your computer. As stated above, these cookies do not identify, monitor, or track any personally identifiable information.
