What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience. Cookies used on the site include:
- First-party cookies. These cookies are served directly by us.
- Third-party cookies. If an entity that does not operate a website sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie. Third-party cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including to enable site analytics, advertising, and social media services provided by the third-0party to the website operator.
- Persistent cookies. These cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that set that particular cookie.
- Session cookies. These cookies allow website operators to log the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user visits a page and finishes when they close the browser window. Once you close the browser, session cookies expire or are deleted.
You can learn more about cookies and how to control them at www.allaboutcookies.org.
What are the categories and purposes of the cookies used on the Sites?
Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are necessary for a website to function and cannot be switched off. They are usually only set in response to user actions that amount to a request for services, such as logging in or filling in forms. We use these cookies to authenticate you as being logged in to the Sites, to make sure you connect to the right service on the Sites, to store your preferences, and for security purposes.
Analytics cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and analyze activity on the Sites so we can measure and improve the performance of our Sites. For example, they help us to know which pages are the most and least popular, see how visitors move around the Sites, and gather information on error messages.
The specific cookies we use are as follows:

Browser Web Storage. We may use browser web storage (including via HTML5), also known as locally stored objects, for similar purposes as cookies. Browser web storage enables the storage of a larger amount of data than cookies. Your web browser may provide functionality to clear your browser web storage.
Web Beacons. We may also use web beacons (which are also known as pixel tags and clear GIFs) on our Sites and in our HTML formatted emails to track the actions of users on our Sites and interactions with our emails. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on webpages or within HTML formatted emails. Pixel tags are used to demonstrate that a webpage was accessed or that certain content was viewed, typically to measure the success of our marketing campaigns or engagement with our emails and to compile statistics about usage of the Sites, so that we can manage our content more effectively.
You can decide not to accept cookies or other technologies. If you do not accept our cookies or other technologies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our Sites. For example, we may not be able to recognize your computer or mobile device and you may need to log in every time you visit our Sites. Your choices for managing cookies include:
- Blocking cookies in your browser. Most browsers let you remove or reject cookies. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings.
- Blocking images/clear gifs. Most browsers and devices allow you to configure your device to prevent images from loading. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser or device settings.
The cookies we use may change from time to time, so please check this notice on a regular basis for updates.
