BY CONTINUING TO BROWSE OR USE OUR SITES, YOU AGREE THAT WE CAN STORE AND ACCESS COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES AS DESCRIBED BELOW. YOU CAN OPT-OUT OR DISABLE SOME OF THE NON-ESSENTIAL COOKIES AT ANY TIME BY FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS IN “How do You Control or Delete Cookies” TO CHANGE YOUR BROWSER SETTINGS.
What are Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies?
Cookies are small text files stored on your device when you visit our Sites. Other tracking technologies work similarly to Cookie by placing a small amount of data on your devices to collect information about how you use our Sites.
In general, we use the following cookies:
Persistent Cookies. “Persistent” or “permanent” cookies remain stored on your hard drive until they expire or are deleted by you. We use persistent cookies to remember you, so you don’t have to log in every time you use our websites. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our sites.
Session Cookies: Session Cookies are temporary and deleted from your machine when your web browser closes. We use session Cookies to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket.
Cookies can be placed by our Sites (“First-party cookies”) or by our partners and service providers to help us better manage content on our sites and track our marketing efforts (“Third-party cookies”). Third-party cookies may also be used to enable analytics or advertising functionality that enables more customized services and advertising.
Finally, to administer our Sites and for research purposes, we may, from time to time, contract with third party service providers to track and analyze statistical usage and volume information from our Sites’ users. These third party service providers use persistent Cookies to help us to improve the user experience, manage our Sites’ content, and analyze how users navigate and utilize the Sites.

1. Other Tracking Technologies
In addition to cookies, there are other automatic data collection technologies, such as Internet tags, web beacons (clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs), and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, etc.) that can be used to collect data as you navigate through and interact with the Sites:
- Web beacons: These are tiny graphics (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web pixels”) with unique identifiers that are used to understand browsing activity. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s device, web beacons are rendered invisible on web pages when you open a page.
- Social Widgets: These are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media platforms that allow you to interact with social media services when you view a webpage or mobile app screen. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party that provided the widget and are controlled by third parties.
- UTM Codes: These are strings that can appear in a URL (the “Uniform Resource Locator”, which is typically the http or https address entered into a webpage) when you move from one web page or website to another. The string can represent information about browsing, such as which advertisement, page, or publisher sent the user to the receiving website.
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
The information that we and our third party service providers track with Cookies, or other tracking technologies may include, but not limited to, Internet-connected device being used to access the Sites, your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, your home domain or Internet service provider, which specific pages you access on the App, how long you view each page, the time and date you access our App. We also may use your IP address to determine the general physical location of your computer or device and understand from what geographic locations our visitors come and to tailor our services to meet our users’ needs (e.g., if a visitor is from California, we may use geolocation information to ensure our California team responds to such visitor).
Specifically, Cookies and other tracking technologies are used for the following purposes:
Strictly Necessary Cookies (Always Active)
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and for us to secure our Site, and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. Some cookies permit us to “remember” you in-between, including your previous actions within the same browsing session. For instance, we will recognize your username and remember how you customized the Sites and services, for example by adjusting text size, fonts, languages and other parts of web pages that are alterable, and provide you with the same customizations during future visits.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources, and how they are performing so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the 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. These Cookies include, for example, Google Analytics cookies.
What Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies Are in Use?
We may use cookie and tracking technologies for this Site, including without limitation those types of cookies described above.
How do You Control or Delete Cookies
Most web browsers are set by default to accept cookies. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may choose to not allow certain cookies via your browser settings to refuse all or some types of cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent by Sites tracking technologies and advertising. You may adjust your browser settings to opt out of accepting a “persistent” cookie and to only accept “session” cookies, but you will need to log in each time you want to enjoy the full functionality of the Sites.
