What is a Cookie?

A Cookie is a piece of data stored on your computer, mobile phone, or other device containing information about your browser session. If you are concerned about having cookies on your computer, you can set your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being set, allowing you to decide whether to accept it. You can also delete cookies from your computer or device. However, if you choose to block or delete cookies, certain features of the Services may not operate correctly.

What cookies do we use?

There are the different types of Cookies we and our service providers may use on our Services:

Essential Cookies. These types of cookies are required for the operation of our Services (for example, to enable you to log into secure areas of our website). These cookies enable you to move around the Services and use their features. Disabling these cookies will encumber the Services’ performance and may make the features and service unavailable.

Session Cookies. These types of cookies are stored only temporarily during a browser session, and are deleted from your device when you close your browser. We use session Cookies to support the functionality of the Services and to understand your use of the Services—that is, which pages you visit, which links you use and how long you stay on each page.

Persistent Cookies. These types of cookies are not deleted when you close your browser, but are saved on your device for a fixed period of time or until you delete them. Each time you visit the Site, the server that set the cookie will recognize the persistent cookie saved on your device. We and others use persistent cookies to store your preferences, so that they are available for your next visit, to keep a more accurate account of how often you visit the Services, how often you return, how your use of the Services may vary over time and the effectiveness of advertising efforts.

Analytics Cookies. These cookies collect information about your use of the Services, and enable us to improve the way it works. These cookies give us aggregated information that we use to monitor site performance, count page visits, spot technical errors, see how users reach the Site, and measure the effectiveness of advertising (including emails we send to you).

Advertising Cookies. These cookies record your online activities, including your visits to our Site and Apps, the pages you have visited, and the links and advertisements you have clicked. One purpose of this is to help make the content displayed on our Site more relevant to you. Another purpose is to allow us and our service providers to deliver advertisements or other communications to you that are designed to be more relevant to your apparent interests.

What other similar technologies do we use?

Other similar technologies may be used for the same purposes as our Cookies, to allow us and third parties to know when you visit the Services, and to understand how you interact with emails or advertisements. These other technologies include pixel tags, server logs, and mobile advertising identifiers, such as Apple’s IDFA or Android’s Advertising ID. A pixel tag is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information. Web logs record certain information from your computer or device and your browser. Through these other technologies, non-personal information (e.g., your operating system, your browser version, and the URL you came from) or aggregate information may be obtained and used to enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns.

How to manage cookies and other similar technologies.

You can decide whether or not to accept Cookies. One way you can do this is through your Internet browser’s settings. Most Internet browsers allow some control of most Cookies through the browser settings. Please note that if you use your browser settings to block all Cookies you may not be able to access parts of our Services.

For analytics we use Google Analytics, Marketo and Mixpanel. You may opt out of the use of cookies by Google Analytics here. To opt out of Marketo and/or Mixpanel  tracking, you may select the Do Not Track (DNT) feature in you browser.

For more information about interest-based advertising, visit the Network Advertising Initiative, the Digital Advertising Alliance, or the European Digitial Advertising Alliance. You may opt out of our third-party service providers’ interest-based advertising practices in web browsers and mobile apps by clicking or if located in the European Union click Please note you will continue to receive generic ads.

Although our Services currently do not respond to “do not track” browser headers, you can limit tracking by taking the steps discussed above.
