Cookies and Other Information Collection Tools
What are cookies? A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your browser or device when you visit a website or use an online service. When you visit the website or use the service again, the cookie allows that website or online service to recognize your browser or device. Cookies may store unique identifiers, user preferences and other information.

Duration of Cookies. We may use “session cookies” or “persistent cookies.” Session cookies are temporary and expire once you close your browser or once you leave our Site. Persistent cookies remain on your device until a pre-defined expiration date or until you or your browser erase them. Persistent cookies may remain for varying durations.

Why do we use them? Cookies help us improve the Site by providing us with information about which parts of the Site are most popular, enabling us to analyze technical and navigational information about the Site, and helping us to detect and prevent fraud. We also use cookies and other data collection tools (such as web beacons and pixels) to help improve your experience with the Site. These tools use cookies to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Site (including IP address) is transmitted to our data collection tool service providers. This information is then used by us to evaluate visitors’ use of the Site and to review statistical reports on Site activity.

Most mobile devices also offer settings to reject mobile device identifiers. Although users are not required to accept cookies or mobile device identifiers, blocking or rejecting them may prevent access to some features available through the Site.

Targeted Advertising

You may see certain advertisements on other websites because we work with advertising partners to engage in remarketing and retargeting activities. Our advertising partners allow us to target our messaging to users through demographic, interest-based and contextual means. These partners track your online activities over time and across websites by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of third-party cookies, web server logs and web beacons. They use this information to show you advertisements that may be tailored to your individual interests. The information our advertising partners may collect includes data about your visits to websites that participate in the relevant advertising networks, such as the pages or advertisements you view and the actions you take on the websites. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts and to control and limit the frequency of advertisements and other information being displayed to you.

Provided that a company participates in industry-developed programs designed to provide consumers choices about whether to receive targeted advertising, you may opt out of ad network interest-based advertising generally through the Network Advertising Initiative website or by visiting (web-based advertising) or (for mobile advertising). To learn more, please visit the websites operated by the Network Advertising Initiative and Digital Advertising Alliance at Opting out does not mean that you will stop receiving advertisements from us. It means that you still stop receiving advertisements from us that have been targeted to you based on your visits and browsing activity across websites over time. Choices you make will be specific to a particular browser or device.


We may use the information we collect for any of the following purposes:
◦ to provide the Site to you and to improve the Site;
