Tracking Information is collected through the use of automatic data collection technologies such as “cookies” and/or “flash cookies.” A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer to collect information about your activities on APPEALTRACK. The information captured via cookies makes it possible for us (i) to speed navigation and provide you with custom-tailored content; (ii) to remember information you gave to us so you don’t have to reenter it each time you visit APPEALTRACK; and (iii) to monitor total number of visitors, page views, and the total number of visitors served. Most people do not even know that cookies are being placed on their computers when they visit APPEALTRACK or most other websites because web browsers are typically set to accept cookies. You can choose to have your web browser warn you every time a cookie is being sent to you or you can turn off cookie acceptance altogether. However, if you refuse cookies, you may be unable to access and use some of our services. Please be advised that unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to APPEALTRACK. Certain features of APPEALTRACK may also use local stored objects (or “flash cookies”) to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from and on APPEALTRACK. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as are used for browser cookies.

Storage and Protection of Collected Information

All Collected Information is stored in a secure environment and is firewall protected. Further, when you enter User Content on APPEALTRACK, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect your information as it is transmitted to us. To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Location line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from “http” to “https.
