2. COOKIES

When you visit the Website the server that hosts the Website may send one or more cookies (a small text file that contains a string of alphanumeric characters) to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser.

However, some features of amica™ may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

3. CLEAR GIFS INFORMATION

When you use the Website, we may employ 'clear GIFs' (a.k.a. Web Beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our Users anonymously (i.e., in a non-personally-identifiable manner).
