GLOSSARY OF TECHNICAL TERMS

The following is a list of some technical terms used in this statement with an explanation of their meaning.

“Electronic data” means information, facts or computer programs stored as or on, created or used on, or transmitted to or from computer software, including systems and applications software, on hard or floppy disks, CD-ROMs, tapes, drives, cells data processing devices or any other repositories of computer software which are used with electronically controlled equipment.

“Computer programs” means a set of related electronic instructions which direct the operation and functions of a computer or device connected to it, which enable the computer or device to receive, process, store, retrieve or send data.

“Web browser” is a piece of software you use to read web pages, such as, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera.

“IP (Internet Protocol) address” is a unique string of numbers separated by periods that identifies each computer attached to the Internet. It also usually has a version containing words separated by periods.

“Cookies” are small packets of data sent by an Internet server to a browser, which are returned by the browser each time they subsequently accesses the same server, and identify the user or track their access to the server.

“Web beacon” or “web bug” is an image file, generally invisible to the user, that is embedded in a web page or e-mail and commonly used in conjunction with “cookies” to facilitate visitor activity tracking.

DO WE USE COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS?

We may use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart (once it has been integrated), save your preferences for future visits, as well as compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent. You also have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser settings, however, if you choose to decline cookies, some of our services may not function properly. If this is the case, you can still place orders over the telephone or by contacting customer service.

To override web beacons, privacy software can be used.


GLOSSARY OF MALICIOUS PROGRAMS

“Virus,” “Worm,” “Trojan horse” are malicious programs that can cause damage to your computer.

A computer "virus" attaches itself to a program or file enabling it to spread from one computer to another, leaving infections as it travels. Its effects can range in severity and may damage your hardware, software or files and is spread by human action.

A “worm” can spread from computer to computer but has the capability to travel without any human action. Because it is able to replicate itself on your system, it could send out hundreds or thousands of copies of itself and consume too much system memory (or network bandwidth), causing Web servers, network servers and individual computers to stop responding.

A “Trojan horse” is so called because, at first glance will appear to be legitimate software or files from a legitimate source but will actually do damage once installed or run on your computer, such as, deleting files and destroying information on your system.

“Time bomb” is a malicious program that is set to "detonate" at a specific time and release a virus onto the computer system or network.
