This helps make navigating and interacting with the Plotkin and Chandler Site more efficient, easy and meaningful.

The data these cookies collect is aggregated and intended to be anonymous and used to improve how the site functions and performs.
We may also have third party service providers help us track and analyse usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit our Site. Or, we may use Flash cookies for this. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored.

What We Do With IP Addresses
When you visit the Plotkin and Chandler Site, we collect your IP addresses to track and analyse information about the devices that are connecting to our systems and about where those devices are located. For example, we use IP addresses to track which regions visitors to our Plotkin and Chandler Site come from and to detect possible fraud.
How We Treat Do Not Track Signals
Various browsers allow a “do not track” (DNT) setting that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to websites visited by the individual about the individual’s browser DNT setting. At this time, there is no general agreement on how companies like Plotkin and Chandler should interpret Do Not Track signals. Therefore, Plotkin and Chandler does not currently commit to respond to DNT signals, whether that signal is received on a computer or on a mobile device. Plotkin and Chandler does, however provide meaningful choices to you about the information that is collected through cookies and web beacons through the various opt-out options set forth above. We will continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
