Occasionally we ask you to provide us certain personal information such as your
name, email address, or your association with a particular Evaluation, Project,
Vendor or Client. You never have to answer these questions, although not
answering them will limit the information that we can provide you. This may not
apply to a Cherokee SPWS, where you must disclose your identity and right to
know before we make available any Project or Evaluation-specific information.

record, in order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
("COPPA"), Cherokee does not knowingly collect any information from
children under 13.
In order to provide you with a personalized experience and also monitor the
traffic patterns on our site, Cherokee uses a feature of your browser called a
"cookie" to track content preferences and traffic patterns. This
browser feature is valuable to you because it alleviates the need to
re-register for services each time you visit our site and because it allows us
to better understand traffic patterns throughout our Web site.
You may choose not to accept cookies by changing the preferences on your
browser. However, your experience will be less personalized and, in addition,
certain services may not be available for your use (See below, "Use of the
Information"). This does not apply to a Cherokee SPWS.
Although you may visit our generic web site (www.Cherokee.to)
anonymously, you may elect to provide us with information you want Cherokee to
remember. We hope that you will want to provide information about yourself
because it will make our Web site more useful to those with whom we work.
