Cookies and Tracking Technologies Notice
A cookie is an alphanumeric set of characters that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer so that a website can remember who you are to, for example, customize website content and create a better browsing experience. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain or website that created the cookie, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and an alphanumeric value, usually a randomly generated unique number to identify the cookie.
Similar technologies may be used instead of or in conjunction with cookies, such as web beacons, which are small, non-recognizable pictures downloaded to your computer when a specific website is loaded.
- To help us recognize you as a unique visitor (just an alphanumeric identifier) when you return to Our Websites.
- To allow us to tailor content or advertisements to match your preferred interests.
- To avoid showing you the same advertisements repeatedly.
- To support sales activities and provide direct marketing communications to you if you have consented to receive such communications.
- To compile statistics that allow us to understand how users interact with Our Websites, such as from which web page a user visited prior to arriving at one of Our Websites, how long users remained on one of Our Websites’ pages, and what website users visited directly after they left the domain of one of Our Websites.
- To help us improve Our Websites.
- To protect the security of Our Websites.
Cookies we use may collect information such as IP address, mobile identifier and the browser and type of operating system of the device you used to access Our Website and certain activity data of the device, for example, pages viewed, and links clicked.
Our Websites use the following categories of cookies:
- Required / Strictly Necessary Cookies: Required cookies are necessary for the operation, maintenance and/or security of Our Websites.
- Functionality / Performance Cookies: Functional and Performance cookies collect information about how visitors use Our Websites, such as which pages visitors go to most often and if they receive error messages from web pages. For example, we may use third parties to help us understand how visitors engage with Our Websites. This means that when you visit Our Websites, your browser automatically sends certain information to these third parties. This includes, for example, the web address of the page you’re visiting and your IP address. These cookies also remember choices you make (e.g., your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced or more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts, and other parts of web pages you can customize.
- Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to deliver advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see a certain advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by third-party advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website and may share this information with other organizations such as advertisers.
Two types of cookies may be used on Our Websites: session cookies (which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site) and persistent cookies (which remain in the cookie file of your browser for longer, typically two days, though the time period will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).

Opt-Out of “Sharing” / Targeted Advertising
Depending on your location, you may opt-out of third-party cookies relating to “sharing” (as that term is defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act) or targeted advertising that uses your personal data. More information can be found at the United States Supplemental Privacy Notice (Selected States).
If your browser supports it, you can turn on Global Privacy Control, which is an opt-out preference signal to opt-out of “sharing” or targeted advertising using your personal data. However, exercising your right to opt-out does not opt you out of all digital advertising; for example, our service providers may still deliver contextual advertising to you on websites without using personal data collected from Our Websites. Opt-out preference signals are browser-based and therefore you must opt out on each browser where you want that choice to apply. If your browser’s software does not natively support this functionality, a third-party plug-in with this functionality may be available to you. Please see your specific browser’s settings and documentation for more information. We process opt-out preference signals in a frictionless manner. If you would like to opt out of “sharing” of your personal data not collected by a cookie, you can do so here.

Do Not Track
There are different ways to prevent the tracking of your online activities. Some web browsers may allow you to enable a do-not-track feature that alerts the websites you visit that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. Our Websites may not recognize or react in response to do-not-track signals.
