Fixya.com may present links in a format that enables us to understand whether they have been followed. We use this information to understand and improve the quality of the Fixya.com search.

We use cookies to improve the quality of the Fixya.com services and to better understand how users interact with us. We do not and cannot use Cookies to retrieve individual personally identifiable information about you from your computer unless you knowingly and willingly provided such information. The cookie technology we use cannot obtain information from your hard drive or pass on a computer virus. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some Fixya.com features or services may not function properly without cookies.
