This information is tracked for a better understanding of how our site is being used. This allows us to troubleshoot technical problems and to customize our editorial content.

The CirculateBLACK Web site and affiliate websites currently utilize “cookies” – special computer codes used to track user activity.
- Cookies contain no information about you – only a unique number or id with no meaning whatsoever outside of the tracking system. Cookies help to target sponsorship information and measure the effectiveness of user access. Cookies can enhance the Internet user’s experience on the web by minimizing the need to re-authenticate user access, or in some cases, to ensuring that you do not see the same sponsor information repeatedly.
- Cookies cannot be used to personally identify you in any way. All users who receive a sponsor message remain completely anonymous. If you do not want the benefits of cookies, there is a simple procedure that allows you to deny or accept this feature. In order to “opt out” of the benefits of cookies, you may delete your cookies by following the instructions contained in the Help section of your browser, but please note that by disabling the cookies for this site or one of our affiliate sites, login sessions may not be kept and user access (where applicable) will be limited.
Some of our affiliated websites’ modules, use cookie technology to offer special features such as localization options, user access tracking and sponsorship banners on certain web pages.
