Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by us are called "first-party cookies." Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third-party cookies." Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g., advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first-party cookies only. Cookies are required for our Website to enable authorized access to pertinent resources. We refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. For this reason, you cannot refuse them while utilizing our web services. However, you may block or delete them by changing your browser settings, as described in the section below "How can I control cookies?".
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:
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enables us to recognize when someone has visited our Website or opened an email including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to identify the intended resource which was chosen to access. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
