How cookies are used on the M.D./alert Site
- Site analysis. JHI uses "analytical" cookies to recognize and count the number of visitors to the M.D./alert Site and to see how visitors move around the M.D./alert Site when they’re using it. This helps us improve the way the M.D./alert Site works, for example by making sure users find what they need easily.
- Behavioral advertising
- You can choose to limit Behavioral Advertising on the M.D./alert Site by clicking http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and opting out of cookies placed by those vendors listed. After you opt out, you will still see advertisements but the advertising may not be as relevant to your interests.

- Google Analytics
- Do Not Track Signals. With some browsers, it is possible for a user to activate a "Do Not Track" signal, to indicate that the user does not want to be tracked across the websites that the user visits. The M.D./alert Site does not respond to Do Not Track signals. In other words, if you have activated a Do Not Track signal in your own browser, the M.D./alert Site will block not tracking by third parties of your activity on the M.D./alert Site.
