In some circumstances, we might use cookies to gather personal data, or that data might turn into personal data if we combine it with other data.

What are cookies?

When you visit a website, small data files called cookies are downloaded to your computer or mobile device. Website owners frequently use cookies to make their websites function, or function more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

“First party cookies” are those that are placed by the website owner (in this case, “Third party cookies” are cookies that are set by organizations other than the owner of the website. Third-party cookies make it possible for third parties to provide features or functionality on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). When you visit the website in question as well as some other websites, the parties who set these third-party cookies are able to identify your computer.

Why do we use cookies?

There are many reasons why we use first-party and third-party cookies. We refer to some cookies as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies because they are necessary for our websites to function technically. In order to improve the user experience on our Online Properties, we can track and target the interests of our users using additional cookies. Through our websites, third parties deliver cookies for advertising, analytics, and other uses. More information on this is provided below.

Please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the particular online properties you visit. The types of first-and third-party cookies served through our websites and the functions they carry out are described below.

How can I control cookies?

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only method for identifying or tracking website visitors. Occasionally, we might also use other, related technologies, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files with a special code that let us know when someone visits one of our websites or opens an email containing them. This enables us to do things like track user movement from one page of a website to another, deliver cookies, determine whether a user arrived there via an online advertisement seen on a different website, enhance the functionality of the website, and assess the effectiveness of email marketing campaigns. These technologies frequently rely on cookies to operate properly, so disabling cookies will make them less functional.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Websites may also use “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”), which are used for a variety of purposes, including fraud prevention, data collection, and site administration.

Using the tools in the Website Storage Settings Panel, you can modify the settings of your Flash player to prevent Flash Cookies from being stored on your computer. You can also manage Flash Cookies by visiting the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the on-screen instructions (which may include instructions on how to delete already-installed Flash Cookies, referred to on the Macromedia website as “information,” how to stop Flash LSOs from being installed on your computer without your knowledge, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the owner of the page you are currently on). Please be aware that configuring the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may limit or hinder the functionality of some Flash applications, potentially affecting the way they interact with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

For the purpose of serving advertising through our websites, third parties may place cookies on your computer or mobile device. To deliver relevant advertisements for products and services you might be interested in, these businesses may use information about your visits to this and other websites. They might also use tools for evaluating how effective advertisements are. In order to deliver relevant advertisements about products and services that may interest you, they can do this by using cookies or web beacons to gather information about your visits to this and other websites. Unless you choose to, the data obtained through this process does not allow us or them to determine your name, contact information, or any other particulars that directly identify you.
