Collection of Personal Information
In order to track your use of the ROV Website, “cookies” are employed. We use two types of cookies — so-called “browser cookies” and “Flash cookies”. Browser cookies (also called “HTTP cookies”) are pieces of information that are sent by web sites and stored in your computer’s hard drive, which provide you a service by allowing us to recognize your computer to save you from having to re-enter the same data every time you visit the ROV Website. They also allow us to learn how visitors use the ROV Website. This User data is aggregated for tracking purposes primarily by tallying pages viewed throughout the ROV Website and logging Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser types, general geographic origin of access to the ROV Website and similar aggregated usage data. Flash cookies (also called “Locally Stored Objects” or “LSOs”) work in a similar manner to browser cookies and are also used to remember settings and preferences and to track usage. However, they relate to certain Flash content such as animation, games and videos, are stored differently on your hard drive and are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your web browser. In general, Flash cookies are more persistent and can store more data that browser cookies.
In the course of serving advertisements to the ROV Website, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a browser or Flash cookie on your hard drive.
If you do not want to receive browser cookies, you may set your browser to reject them. If you wish to disable or delete Flash cookies, you should consult the Help file for your Flash application. However, if you turn cookies off (whether browser or Flash cookies), you may not have access to some ROV Content.

We do not otherwise sell or provide your Personal Information to third parties.
