USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
When you access our Website, we may place a “cookie” on your device. A cookie is a file that a website can store on your web browser, computer, or device and later retrieve. A cookie allows our Website to recognize you as a prior user, provide our Website with information regarding your use, and helps us determine the portions of our Website that are best suited for you.
Cookies set by the website you are visiting are normally referred to as “first-party cookies,” and typically only track your activity on that particular site. Cookies set by other sites and companies (i.e., third parties) are called “third-party cookies,” and can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.
Cookies we use can be categorized as one of the following: (i) Essential Functionality Cookies; (ii) Non-essential Functionality Cookies; (iii) Statistics Cookies and; (iv) Marketing Cookies.
Essential cookies are crucial to your experience of a website, enabling core features like user logins, account management, shopping carts, and payment processing.
Non-Essential Functionality Cookies are used in collecting information about your device and any settings you may configure on the website you’re visiting (like language and time zone settings).
Statistics Cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
Marketing Cookies allow for the collection of visitor behavior for statistical purpose and to track visitors across devices and marketing channels. Any Personal Information collected through the use of marketing cookies is anonymous.
Although some cookies can be blocked with little impact on your experience of a website, blocking all cookies may mean you are unable to access certain features and content across the sites you visit.
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Our Website is not currently configured to respond to Do Not Track signals. In order to potentially identify cookies on our Website you may use a browser plug-in that scans a website for cookies. We do not guarantee the accuracy, effectiveness and/or security of any such browser plug-in.
You may choose whether to receive some interest-based advertising by submitting opt-outs. Some of the advertisers and service providers that perform advertising-related services for us and third parties may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding interest-based advertising, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices, and http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices for information on the DAA’s opt-out program for mobile apps. Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of interest-based advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected NAI/DAA members should no longer deliver certain Interest-based Advertising to you, but does not guarantee that you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other advertising networks). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit these opt-out websites, you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different device or web browser or use a non-browser-based method of access (e.g., mobile app), or you shut down or restart your device or browser, your NAI/DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective.
We may use pixel tags (also known as pixel gifs or web beacons) and other methods to gather information about the emails we send. Pixel tags are tiny graphic files that are included in our HTML-encoded email messages. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable email program, the recipient’s computer will access our servers to retrieve the pixel tag file, allowing us to record and store information such as email address, date and time the recipient viewed the email message, if the recipient’s email program is capable of receiving HTML, and other logging information. We may use this information to optimize delivery of future messages to specific recipients.
ONLINE TRACKING / DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
“Do Not Track” (DNT) signals are options available on your browser to tell operators of websites that you do not wish to have your online activity tracked. Our Website is not currently set up to respond to these signals. If you choose to block cookies and other trackers, certain features of the Website may not work. On a mobile device, you may also be able to adjust your settings to limit ad tracking.
