The cookies do not collect personally identifiable information. Cookies are used to track usage patterns, traffic trends, and customer behavior, as well as to record other information from the NSC Website. When you register on the NSC Website (e.g., the NSC Store), cookies also allow us to save information so that you will not have to re-enter it the next time you visit.
