Information Collected by Placing a “Cookie” On Your Computer
Argano may obtain information about you by installing a “tag” on your computer’s hard drive. This tag is known as a “cookie.” All Argano Internet Sites use “session cookies.” A session cookie is used to tag your computer with a computer-generated, unique identifier when you access our site.

We use session cookies to collect statistical information about the ways visitors use our sites’, which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. We analyze this information in statistical form to better understand our visitor’s interests and needs to improve the content and functionality of our sites.

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit an Argano Internet Site, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the site if your browser rejects our cookies.
5. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION?

Access to Personal Information
6. HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE?
In Short: We aim to protect your personal information through a system of organizational and technical security measures.

For example, we use secure socket layer (SSL) technology to transfer personal information over the Internet. Although we use security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized disclosure, misuse or alteration, as is the case with all computer networks linked to the Internet, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet and will not be responsible for breaches of security beyond our reasonable control.
