ASBC and Cookies
Every computer on the Internet is identified by a unique number called an Internet Protocol (IP) address. Each time you connect to the Internet, your machine is assigned an IP address. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with the Site, more efficiently administer the Site and better tailor our Site to your needs, and analyze trends by gathering broad demographic information.
Upon your first visit to ASBC , ASBC may send a “cookie” to your computer. A cookie is a piece of data that identifies you as a unique user.

ASBC may save information such as time of day, browser type, browser language, and IP address with each query.
