A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow us to: (i) recognize your computer or device; (ii) store your preferences and settings; (iii) understand the web pages of the Services you have visited; (iv) enhance your user experience by assisting in your navigation and delivering content specific to your interests; (v) perform searches and analytics; (vi) troubleshoot and manage errors; and (vi) assist with security administrative functions.
In addition to cookies, we may also collect data about your interaction with the Services through web server logs and/or tracking pixels. A web server log is a file where website activity is stored. Tracking pixels (sometimes referred to as web beacons or clear GIFs) are tiny electronic tags with a unique identifier embedded in websites, online ads and/or email.
These technologies used together are designed to provide usage information for purposes of analyzing and improving the performance of the Services we provide to you.

We may use third-party web analytics service providers, such as Google Analytics, to help us analyze how users use the Services. These service providers use cookie technologies to collect your usage and navigation information to evaluate your interactions with the Services. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here.
We may also use third-party advertising partners to personalize the content that you see when using the Services and to deliver tailored ads. These services providers similarly use cookie technologies to deliver tailored content and ads based on your online usage and navigation information (such past browser activity), and report on the effectiveness of the content in engaging interaction or directing you to our Services. For more information about tailored browser advertising and how you can control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored advertising, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link or the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out link to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs. To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page.
Please note that we do not control any of the above opt-out links and are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT. To learn more about Do Not Track, you can do so here.
