b. Information from Children. ATK does not knowingly solicit or collect information from children under 13 years of age. The use of this Site by children under 13 years of age is not conditioned on the disclosure of Personal Information. However, we ask that children not submit information to us or place an order without the consent of a parent or guardian.

If your child subscribes to receive information from ATK without your knowledge, simply follow the instructions on our e-mail and unsubscribe immediately. Please include the child's name and the parent's e-mail address in the e-mail so that ATK can better assist you with your inquiry or request. Parents can also contact our customer service department to access, change, or delete the personal information that has been submitted by a child.

c. Cookies and Tracers. ATK may, directly or through a third party, collect information about you and your use of our Site whenever you visit this Site. For instance, we may collect various forms of information such as entry and exit points for our Site (i.e., referring URLs or domains), site traffic statistics, operating system and browser type (collectively "Traffic Data"). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Site. In addition, when you request pages on our Site, our servers automatically log your IP address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. ATK may store some information on your computer in the form of a "cookie" or similar file to help us maintain and improve this Site in many ways. A "cookie" is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card, recording such things as Internet addresses, passwords, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. With most Internet browsers, you can erase "cookies" from your computer hard drive, block all "cookies," or receive a warning before a "cookie" is stored. The "Help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn more about these functions. Enabling cookies allows you to take full advantage of all the features on the Site and we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you elect to block the cookies, we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience on our Site.

In some instances, ATK may use tracking scripts or "tracers" that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your hard drive by another website. These are used by ATK solely to gauge the success of our own advertising. For instance, we may use a tracer to determine whether you visit certain web pages where ATK may have placed a banner ad. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of the Internet unrelated to ATK. Please note that ATK does not use tracers to identify your personal information, and you remain anonymous unless and until you communicate with ATK via e-mail or complete on-line forms.
