  1. WHAT ARE COOKIES AND OTHER ONLINE TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES?

Cookies are small files that are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. The cookie then sends information back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Other types of tracking technologies work similarly to cookies and place small data files on your devices or monitor your website activity to collect information about how you use our Sites. Accordingly, Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies allow our Sites to recognize your device and track your activities and preferences, thereby allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently and to generally improve the user experience. The information provided below about cookies also applies to the other tracking technologies referenced above (i.e., web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, and other similar technologies). You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org.

 

Cookies are often categorized by function. We use five types of cookies on our Sites:

For instance, these cookies are necessary to allow us to operate our Sites so you may access them as you have requested.

They also include cookies that enable us to remember your previous actions within the same browsing session. Without these cookies, the service you have asked for cannot be provided.
Performance Cookies These cookies understand and analyze the Sites’ performance. These cookies are used to improve how the Sites function.
Functional Cookies These cookies allow the Sites to remember choices users make and to provide enhanced, personalized features. For example, within our Sites, these cookies remember users’ language preferences.
