When you revisit the Site, LienLog may recognize you by your Internet cookies and customize your experience accordingly. You may decline Internet cookies by using the appropriate feature of your Web browser software, if available, although doing so will preclude you from using many of the features and functions on the Site which rely on the use of cookies and other similar technologies.

When a user performs a search within the Site, LienLog may record information identifying the user or linking the user or to the search performed and recording information related to the search request.
