Cookies and Marketing

Cookies. In operating the Services, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Services gives to your browser when you access the Services. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Services, including helping us analyze usage more accurately. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive a notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Service features. In order to personalize your use of the Site, we use local shared objects, also known as Flash cookies, to display content based upon what you view. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies. (discussed above) because of the amount and type of information they generate, and how they store that information. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies. When you visit the Site or view one of our emails, we will use pixel tags or “clear” gifs to track links and/or similar technology to note some of the pages you visit on our Site and to personalize your experience. Pixel tags are a technology similar to cookies that can be embedded in online content or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites (for example, to know when content has been shown to you), or to know when you have viewed particular content or a particular email message.

Analytics and Tracking Technologies. We may, and we may allow third-party service providers, to use cookies (as noted above) or other tracking technologies (e.g., Google Analytics), to help us understand your use of our Site and collect information about your browsing activities over time and across different websites.
