Cookies and Similar Technologies

We may allow service providers and other third parties to use cookies and similar technologies to track your browsing activity over time and across the Sites and third party websites.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer when you visit a site.  Cookies serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your browsing experience.

Who places cookies on my device?

Cookies set by the site you visit are called “first party cookies”.  Cookies set by parties other than us are called “third party cookies”.   Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality within the site, such as site analytics.  The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer or device both when it visits the site in question and when it visits certain other sites and/or mobile apps.  We do not control how these third parties use your information, which is subject to their own privacy policies.

How long will cookies stay on my device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing.  Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device after you have finished browsing until they expire or are deleted.

What other tracking technologies should I know about?

Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a site or app.  Companies use tiny graphics files with unique identifiers called beacons (and also “pixels” or “clear gifs”) to recognize when someone visits its sites.  These technologies often depend on cookies to function properly, and so disabling cookies may impair their functioning.

What types of cookies and similar tracking technologies do you use?

The Sites use cookies and other tracking technologies in the following categories:

Type
Essential These cookies are necessary to allow the technical operation of our Sites (e.g., they enable you to move around on a website and to use its features). CCBCC See ‘your choices’ below.
Analytics These cookies help us understand how our Sites are performing and being used. Google Analytics

 

 

 

See ‘your choices’ below.  Google also provides a Google Analytics opt-out plug-in for the web.

 

 

 

How can I disable cookies?

Most browsers let you remove or reject cookies.  To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings.  Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings.  Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, the Sites may not work properly.

For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.  You can also opt-out of tracking through certain third-party advertising and analytics cookies by using the opt out services provided by the Digital Advertising Alliance or Network Advertising Initiative.  We are not affiliated with or responsible for these third party websites.

Do you respond to do not track signals?

Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit.  We currently do not respond to  your browser’s “Do Not Track” or similar signals.  To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
