Understanding Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Tracking Technologies
Cookies or browser cookies are small amounts of data a website can send to a visitor’s web browser. They are often stored on the device you are using to help track your areas of interest. Cookies may also enable us or our service providers and other companies we work with to relate your use of our online services over time to customize your experience. Most web browsers allow you to adjust your browser settings to decline or delete cookies but doing so may degrade your experience with our online services.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags, single pixel-gifs or web beacons (which are typically one-pixel, transparent images located on a webpage or in an email or other message) or similar technologies may be used on our sites and in some of our digital communications (such as email or other marketing messages). They may also be used when you are served advertisements, or you otherwise interact with advertisements outside of our online services. These are principally used to help recognize users, assess traffic patterns and measure site or campaign engagement.
Local Shared Objects, sometimes referred to as “flash cookies” may be stored on your hard drive using a media player or other software installed on your device. Local Shared Objects are similar to cookies in terms of their operation but may not be managed in your browser in the same way.
(We do not collect personal information automatically but we may tie this information to personal information about you that we collect from other sources or you provide to us.)
