Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that deployed the cookie on your computer or other device. Cookies are used for various purposes, as described in Types of Cookies Used on the Site below. We may link the information we store in cookies to personal information you submit while on our Site.

Types of Cookies Used on the Site

The Site uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Site. A session cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. We use persistent cookies to help remember use preferences and improve the user experience. Cookies that we may use could also be grouped into the following categories (and may include persistent or session cookies depending on the context):

  • Analytics/Performance cookies that collect information about how you use our Site. These cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of unique users visiting the Site (and Site features) and to see how users move around our website. This helps us to improve the way our website works. These cookies are sometimes placed by third-party providers of web traffic analysis services. These cookies may be either persistent or session cookies.
  • Functionality cookies that remember choices you make and recognize you when you return. These cookies enable us to personalize our content, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). These cookies are generally persistent cookies.
  • Ad Functionality cookies that are functionality cookies for the purposes of advertising. These cookies are generally persistent cookies.
  • Targeting cookies that collect information about your browsing habits such as the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We use this information to make our website more relevant to your interests, and, if we enable advertising, to make advertising more relevant to you, as well as to limit the number of times you see a particular ad. These cookies are usually placed by third-party advertising networks. These cookies may track you across websites that you visit and this information is shared with third-party organizations like advertisers. These cookies are generally persistent cookies.
  • Retargeting cookies are essentially a form of targeting cookies that enable advertising based on your browsing habits and the links you have followed. These cookies are generally persistent cookies.

Online Ads

We may also use web beacons on our Site and in email communications. Web beacons, also known as clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs, are small image files that we, or our third-party service providers, place on our Site and in emails. Alongside cookies, web beacons allow us to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page on the Site, or opened or acted upon an email. This information allows us to measure the performance of our Site and our email campaigns.

Advertising on Third-Party Websites and Ad Networks. We partner with third parties to manage our advertising on the Site and third-party websites, which may include serving or tracking advertisements on or relating to the Site. Our third-party service providers may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on the Site and third-party sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. The privacy policies of those third parties will govern your interactions with such third-party websites or ad networks.

We support the self-regulatory principles for online behavioral advertising (Principles) published by the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). This means that we allow you to exercise choice regarding the collection of information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites for online interest-based advertising purposes. More information about these Principles can be found at If you want to opt out of receiving online interest-based advertisements on your internet browser from advertisers and third parties that participate in the DAA program and perform advertising-related services for us and our partners, please follow the instructions at, or to place an opt-out cookie on your device indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertisements. Opt-out cookies only work on the internet browser and device they are downloaded onto. If you want to opt out of interest-based advertisements across all your browsers and devices, you will need to opt out on each browser on each device you actively use. If you delete cookies on your device generally, you will need to opt out again.

If you are located in the European Union, please see this guide for ways to opt out of receiving targeted advertising from participating third-party advertisers.

Please note that when you opt out of receiving interest-based advertisements, this does not mean you will no longer see advertisements from us. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs. In addition, third parties may still use cookies to collect information about your use of our Site, including for analytics and fraud prevention.

Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on the Site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the device you are using by your ISP and, in many cases, IP addresses are shared by multiple people or computers and may be dynamically generated (meaning they change over time). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you use the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) you visited. We may combine this automatically-collected log information with other information we collect from you. We do this to improve the functionality of the Site.

Analytics. We use third-party analytics provided by Google Analytics. For information on how Google Analytics collects and processes information about you and information on how to opt out from Google’s collection of information from you, please visit Google's Opt-out policy.

Your continued use of the Site after any such update constitutes acceptance of any such modified Cookies Policy. We encourage you to review this page periodically for the latest information on our cookies practices. The date of last revision is shown at the top of this Cookies Policy.
