Automatic Information and "Cookies"
When someone visits our website, our Web server recognizes only the visitor's domain name, not his or her E-mail address. This information is used to improve the content of our Web page and is then discarded. We do not partner with or have any special relationships with any advertising companies and your information is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
In the process of interacting with our website, "cookies" are used to enhance your use of the website. However, we do not utilize any tracking cookies nor do we retain any information from your web browser to alert or otherwise enable our servers to personalize future visits to our website.

To further illustrate such interaction for example, when a website visitor wants more information about a specific Emerald product or service some information may be requested and require submission prior to proceeding. This volunteered information is used only for the specific purpose for which it was given by the website visitor, and is not shared with other organizations for other purposes. Thus, persons who supply us with their postal address will only receive the information for which they provided us their address. Persons who supply us with their telephone number on line will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed on line.
Outside of the website, Emerald will never request that you submit your username or password, credit card information or other personal information via email correspondence. If you ever receive an email that appears to be from Emerald requesting such information, it should be considered "phishing" and you should not respond.
