We collect this information to learn how to improve the website and how to best tailor it to our visitors. When you visit the website, we may automatically collect some information about your visit using cookies, log analytics software, and other aggregate tracking technologies. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain website. We may use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before.

Refusal of these cookies may result in your inability to access some pages or use some of the features and functions of the website. If you accept but then decline cookies, please note that some State National cookies will remain on your computer’s hard drives unless and until you manually delete the cookie file. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

  • Functionality: These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, the website may be able to remember your login details, so that you do not have to repeatedly sign in to your account when using a particular device to access the website. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font, and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on an article. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymized. They do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remember where you have been on the internet.

Do Not Track signals: The major browsers have attempted to implement the draft “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”) in their latest releases. As this standard has not been finalized, our website is not compatible with DNT and so, does not recognize DNT settings.
