Listed below are the categories of cookie technology we use on our Sites:
- Strictly necessary (or essential) cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to move around a website and use its features, such as services you have asked for. Without these cookies, those services would not be available to you. These services include, for example, browsing as a registered user, accessing secure areas of the Sites, or making a purchase through the Sites. They also include cookies that we must use to honor opt-out preferences, to the extent that those preferences are linked to a specific user’s IP address. Our Sites use strictly necessary cookies.
- Statistical cookies:
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, such as the number of visitors that browse the Sites or a particular section of the Sites, the pages visitors visit most often, and whether visitors get error messages from web pages. The information that we gather through statistical cookies is only used to improve how our Sites work, better understand our customers for marketing purposes, and to help us evaluate usage of our Sites. We use statistical cookies (for example, Google Analytics) on our Sites. We may combine or connect information from statistical cookies with other information about website visitors, but we only use this combined information in accordance with our privacy statement.
- Preference cookies
These cookies allow a website to remember choices that you make (such as your username, your language, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. Providing these features allows you to have a better experience while using our Sites. We use preference cookies on our Sites.
- Marketing cookies
These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. The cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organizations, such as advertisers, who recognize you as someone who is interested in our products and who are then able to provide you with relevant advertisements about our products when you are on our Sites or other websites. Quite often marketing cookies will be linked to site functionality that is provided by the other organization. We may use and permit marketing cookies and similar technologies noted above on our Sites. We may use Google Analytics and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to collect information regarding visitor behavior and visitor demographics on some of our Sites and to develop website content. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can opt out of Google’s collection and processing of data generated by your use of the Sites by going to http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Please note the use of Google Analytics may involve a transfer of information collected via these cookies to the United States. More information about the security measures applied by Google can be found at https://services.google.com/fh/files/misc/safeguards_for_international_data_transfers.pdf.
Also depending on where you are located, you may be able to opt out of having participating entities collect your online behavior for advertising purposes when you are browsing our Sites by using tools developed by industry organizations. For example, the Your Online Choices tool, the Your AdChoices tool and the tool developed by Network Advertising Initiative. You will be directed to industry-developed websites that allow you to choose whether each listed entity may collect and use data for interest-based advertising purposes. It may be that some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on our Sites do not participate in these organizations or initiatives, in which case the best way to avoid third-party tracking of your online behaviors may be through your browser settings and deletion of cookies. You may need to use mobile-specific tools in relation to mobile apps. Please note that the tools are device specific. If you wish to opt out from having interest-based information collected by participating entities across all devices, you need take the steps outlined above from each device.
