Within your browser settings, you can choose whether to accept cookies. To access, you are encouraged to enable cookies (which most browsers do by default). That way, we can remember you and tailor your experience to better suit your needs. If you are using Safari as your browser, you should also enable cross-site tracking by disabling the Prevent Cross-Site Tracking option.

You can also separately control whether to accept third-party cookies – cookies placed by third party services that are integrated into the website you are visiting.

A 2011 European Union privacy law requires websites to obtain consent from visitors before placing cookies on their devices. Since NAMEC does not serve EU customers, it does not need to comply with this law.
