Information about our use of cookies and other tracking technologies

As you use our website (the “Website”), and/or any capability, software or service that may be made available through the Website (the “Services”), we collect certain information by automated or electronic means, using cookies and other tracking technologies.  Please review our Privacy Policy for details on the categories of information we collect through these technologies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely identify your browser or device and which are transmitted back to us by your computer(s) or mobile device(s). The information from cookies and related technology is stored in web server logs and also in web cookies kept on your devices, which are then transmitted back to us by your devices.

These cookies are managed by, us, our business partners and/or our service providers. For example, when you access the Website and/or the Services, we may place cookies on your computers or mobile devices. Cookies can store information about your registration and your use of the Website and/or the Services. They allow us to provide you with a good experience when you use our Website and/or Services and to recognize you when you return so you will not be required to register again to use the Website and/or Services. Cookies will also track your use of the Website and/or the Services and can help us to detect certain kinds of fraud. Cookies may also be used to provide you with personalized advertisements, including on third-party websites and applications, and to determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns.

Some cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer. “Session” cookies are temporary cookies used for various reasons, such as to manage page views. Your browser usually erases session cookies once you exit your browser. “Persistent” cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on your devices even beyond when you exit your browser. We use both types of cookies.

Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images that may be placed on Website and/or Services that often interact with cookies and allow us to determine whether you have performed specific actions. When you access these pages or open email messages or advertisements, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action to a server. Like cookies, these tools are managed by, us, our business partners and/or our service providers, and provide functionality similar to cookies.

We use the following types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are essential for the operation and security of our Website.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how you use our Website. For example, they allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our Website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognize you when you return to our Website and remember the choices you make. This enables us to personalize our content for you and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record information about your visit to our Website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use these cookies to make our Website and the advertising displayed on it and other sites more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties to help create and deliver advertising personalized to you and your interests.
