When you visit our Website, we insert small pieces of instructions on your computer or mobile device. These instructions take the form of a “cookie” or similar tools such as web beacons, small and clear images on a web page or email that are programmed to render and collect information about the use of a given web page or email, such as whether or not an email is opened and viewed. Cookies provide us with information that we use to enhance your experience on our Website.
There are two basic types of cookies. One is a session cookie which terminates when your session ends and the second is a persistent cookie, which is a text file that remains stored on your computer for a period of time. Your internet browser contains instructions about how to remove or block persistent cookies. If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to create or sign in to your account with us or otherwise take full advantage of the Website.
Cookies we use fall into one of three categories: required, functionality, and advertising. The purposes of these cookies are summarized in the table below. You can obtain more information about cookies at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. For a full list of the cookies we use on our website, you may access the cookie tool deployed on our Website, which will display all of the cookies currently deployed.
These cookies are essential to make our Website work. They enable you to move around the Website and use its features. Without these cookies, services that are necessary for you to be able to use our Website, such as accessing secure areas, cannot be provided.
These items are used to deliver advertising that is more relevant to you and your interests. They may also be used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. Advertising networks usually place them with the website operator’s permission.
These items allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For example, a website may provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing data about your current location.
These items help the website operator understand how its website performs, how visitors interact with the site, and whether there may be technical issues. This storage type usually doesn’t collect information that identifies a visitor.

Do Not Track Signals

At this time, we respond to browser "do not track" signals by blocking placement of cookies on your device as there is no accepted standard for implementing these signals.
