Cookies and local storage are data files placed within a browser on your device when the device is used to visit the Site. These technologies store a unique identifier for your device that can be used to recognize your device whenever you visit the Site, and may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, to evaluate and improve the functionality of our Site, to help us deliver content specific to your interests, and to improve browsing experience by preserving information so users will not have to re-enter it for each visit. If you do not want to accept cookies, you can block them by adjusting the settings on your Internet browser.

Our Site does currently respond to DNT browser signals or mechanisms.
- Our Use of Personally Identifiable Information
- Protection of Personally Identifiable Information
We employ the following data security tools to protect PII:
- In certain areas of the Site, Milestone uses industry standard SSL encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions.
- Account information is password protected.
- We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
- We restrict access to PII to select Milestone employees and third-party contractors who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using our Site, you acknowledge and agree that we make no such guarantee, and that you use our Site at your own risk.
