We use cookies during your use of our Service. Cookies are small files that a website or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the website’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember your load search history and suggest new searches based on your history. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current Service activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about Service traffic and Service interaction so that we can offer better Service experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our Service visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox) settings.
