A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website — when visited by a user — asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Those cookies are set by us and called first party cookies. We also use third party cookies — which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of our Website — for our advertising and marketing efforts.
Below is a detailed list of the cookies we use on our Website. We will use reasonable efforts to update this list as our cookies changes. We classify cookies in the following categories: (a) Strictly Necessary Cookies; (b) Performance Cookies; (c) Functional Cookies; and (d)Targeting Cookies. You can opt-out certain cookies (except strictly necessary cookies) as explained further below.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the Website to function and cannot be turned off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for information or services, such as logging in or filling in forms on our Website. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Website will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use our Website, for instance, the number of visits, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
Google has added the code "anonymizeIp" to our Websites to enable the anonymous identification of IP addresses.
These cookies enable us to provide enhanced functionality and personalization for our Website. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other websites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
How to opt-out of cookies
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie preferences by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links provided below.
In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com. You may opt out by clicking here: http://preferences.truste.com/ (or if located in the European Union, by clicking here: http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/). Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic advertisements.
Strictly necessary cookies: Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Websites to you, you cannot refuse them. You can block or delete them by changing your browser settings however, as described above.
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage the Website by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use clear gifs or pixels in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to our customers' Personal Information.
