WHAT ARE COOKIES?
As detailed in our Privacy Statement, cookies are one of the ways we gather information. A cookie is a small data file sent to your device’s (computer, tablet, or mobile phone) web browser and stored on your device’s hard drive when you first visit a website. Cookies typically contain a number that is unique to the device you are using. These identifiers can aid in tracing internet activity and gaining a better understanding of our users and how they use the Site and Services, as well as their engagement level and general preferences. Cookies also allow users to be recognized when they return to the site, retaining their settings and preferences and providing customized features and a more personalized web experience.
Cookies are either “permanent” or “session” in nature. If you continue to access, interact with, or otherwise use the Site or the Services without adjusting your cookie settings, we will assume you consent to their use. Please remember that you can modify your cookies settings at any time to control cookies by limiting or prohibiting our website from placing cookies on your device and disabling unwanted cookies already stored on your device by modifying your browser’s settings, as described below under User options.
We may install some cookie files in your web browser when you access and use the Site and Service.
WHAT KINDS OF COOKIES ARE USED ON OUR WEBSITE?
We utilize both session and persistent cookies on the Services, and we employ the following cookies to operate the Site and the Services:
