What are cookies? Cookies are small text files placed on your device to store data that can be recalled by a web server in the same domain that placed the cookie. The text in a cookie often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your device, but it can contain other information as well. Cookies on the Site are used to store your preferences and settings, enable you to sign-in, provide interest-based advertising, combat fraud, analyze how our products perform, personalize your experience and the content you see on the Site (such as showing you information about our products and services that you have previously viewed or accessed or may be interested in), and fulfill other legitimate purposes.
What are web beacons/pixel tags? The Site may also contain electronic images known as web beacons (also called pixel tags) that we use to help deliver cookies on our websites, count users who have visited, and gather usage and performance data. We also include web beacons in our promotional email messages or newsletters to determine whether you open and act on them, and in our ads appearing on other websites to measure the performance of those ads.
- Strictly Necessary Cookies. Some cookies are essential to the operation of the Services. They are used to facilitate our log-in process, authenticate users, and enable you to navigate the Site and to use their features. Without these cookies, we may not be able to provide certain services or features, and the Sites may not perform as smoothly for you as we would like. Because strictly necessary cookies are essential to operate the Site, there is no option to opt out of these cookies.
- Functional Cookies. In some circumstances, we may use functional cookies. Functional cookies allow us to remember the choices you make while browsing on the Site, and to provide enhanced and more personalized content and features, such as customizing a certain webpage, remembering if we have asked you to participate in a promotion and for other services you request, or commenting on a blog. In order to permit your connection to the Site, our servers receive and record information about your computer and browser, potentially including your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. All of these features help us to improve your visit and assist in navigation of the Site’s features.
- Analytics Cookies. We and our service providers may use analytics cookies, which are sometimes called performance cookies, to collect information about your use of the Site and enable us to improve the way they work. Analytics cookies collect information about how you use the Site, for instance, which pages you go to most. This information allows us to see the overall patterns of usage, helps us record any difficulties users may have while using the Site and shows us whether or not our advertising is effective.
- Social Media Cookies. These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on the Site or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking site such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this. This information may be linked to targeting/ advertising activities.

What are my Choices? When it comes to non-essential cookies and web beacons, you have the following choices:
- Browser cookie controls. Web browsers vary on whether they are set to accept various types of cookies by default. You can go to your browser settings to learn how to delete or reject cookies. If you choose to delete or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our website. If you choose to delete cookies, settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, may be deleted and may need to be recreated.
- Do Not Track. Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, the Site does not currently respond to browser DNT signals.
- Global Privacy Controls (GPC). GPC empowers users to signal their chosen privacy settings to websites through their browser. If you have turned the GPC signal on, the Site will accept your signal preferences.
- Promotional Emails. You can disable web beacons in email messages by changing the settings on your email to prevent the automatic downloading of images.
- Industry-wide opt-outs. Many advertising companies are also members of associations, which provide a simple way to opt out of analytics and ad targeting, which you can access at:
- United States: NAI (http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.aspx and DAA (http://www.aboutads.info/choices/)
- Canada: Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (https://youradchoices.ca/)
- Europe: European Digital Advertising Alliance (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/)
