Will Memoire Transfer My Personal Information Across Borders?
Do We Use “Cookies”?
Yes. “Cookies” are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use “cookies” to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use “cookies” to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.
We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitor. These service providers are not permitted to sell the information collected on our behalf except to help Memoire conduct and improve its business. The companies use “cookies” to gather anonymous data about our visitors on behalf of Memoire. They do not collect Personal Information like e-mail, credit card number, phone number, or name.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a “cookie” is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer or Mozilla) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your “cookie” settings. If you turn off “cookies,” you won't have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.
