What are cookies and similar technologies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your browsing experience. Pixels are small images on a web page or in an email. Pixels collect information about your browser or device and can set cookies.
Our Sites may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them).
We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Sites; and (2) third party cookies, which are served by service providers or business partners on our Sites, and can be used by these parties to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites. Third party cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including site analytics, advertising and social media features.
What types of cookies and similar technologies are used on our Sites?
Strictly necessary. These cookies are necessary for the Sites to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. Without them you would not be able to use our basic services. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Sites will not work.

They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other Sites based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Social Media. These cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the Sites to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.

Like many companies, we use services that help deliver interest-based ads to you. Our use of these services may constitute a “share” of your Personal Information for purposes of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) (as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act) because the advertising partners that provide the services collect information from our users (e.g., the device data and online activity data described above) to help them serve ads more likely to interest you. The CCPA gives you the right to opt out of the use of targeted advertising. See our cookie preference manager to opt out of the use of your information for interest-based advertising (toggle off the “Targeting” categories to do so).
Information about the cookies we use may be updated from time to time, so please check back on a regular basis for any changes.
