Functionality Cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use our Services, such as which pages visitors go to most often and if they receive error messages from web pages. As set forth above, we may use third parties to help us understand how visitors engage with our Services. This means that when you engage with our Services, your browser automatically sends certain information to these third parties. This includes, for example, the web address of the page you’re visiting and your IP address. These cookies additionally remember choices you make (such as your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced or more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages you can customize. 

Targeting and Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to deliver advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see a certain advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They may be placed by third-party advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website and may share this information with other organizations such as advertisers.

Two types of cookies may be used on our Websites: session cookies (which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site) and persistent cookies (which remain in the cookie file of your browser for longer, though the time period will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie or until you delete your cookies).

Depending on your location, you may also opt out of third-party cookies relating to behavioral advertising by visiting the following websites:

Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the company or companies from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your browsing preferences and usage patterns. You may temporarily continue to see some tailored ads produced from ongoing advertising campaigns.

The above opt-out tools rely on the use of cookies, and to the extent your browser settings impact use of third-party cookies, the above tools may not operate correctly. The above tools also apply only to the browser on which they are exercised. If you want to apply these tools to multiple devices or multiple browsers, you must exercise these tools on each browser and/or device.

DO NOT TRACK

There are different ways to prevent tracking of online activities. Some web browsers may allow you to enable a do-not-track feature that alerts the websites you visit that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. Our Websites may not recognize or react in response to do-not-track signals. At present, no generally accepted standards exist on how companies must respond to do-not-track signals. In the event a final standard is established, we will assess and provide an appropriate response to these signals.
