General information that we gather
Whenever you visit OLYMPUSAMERICA.COM we gather general information about your visit - the site you are coming from, pages or areas you visit on our site, and how long you stay at a particular location on the site. This general information is used only in the aggregate, much like television ratings. This information helps us identify popular areas of our site as well as areas that could use refinement, so that we can keep content on the site fresh and relevant to our users' interests. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on this data. We do not collect any personally identifiable information from you except when you expressly volunteer it under special circumstances described below, such as entering a contest.
Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies without asking the user if he/she wants to do so, but you can usually change your browser to notify you when there is a cookie so you can choose whether to accept or decline the cookie. If you choose to decline one of our cookies, you will still be able to use the features on our site.
