A cookie is a small text file that a website places on your browser. Cookies, web beacons and tracking technologies are widely used for security, to learn about and improve upon how users navigate a website, or to enable certain features. For example, cookies allow a site to remember who you are between page views and or visits by storing a unique identifier in your cookie store, determine information about the duration of your visit to a site, or to serve you relevant advertising.
Cookies have a time limit for which they will be stored. “Session cookies” remain on your browser while you are logged on to a particular website and ‘expire’ or are deleted from your device when you leave the website, close the browser, or delete them. “Persistent cookies” remain on your device for longer periods of time, sometimes indefinitely, or until you delete them. Such cookies may be installed by either a first party (the site you are visiting) or by a third party (a partner or party other than the site, such as Google Analytics).
Web beacons or pixel tags function through the use of small files, such as a GIF or PNG, that are opened on a page or in an email. The request for these files from a server reveals to the operator of that server common information such as IP address, date, time, browser type, etc. Pixel tags can be used to create anonymous user profiles, to analyze site usage, or to improve the quality of advertisements delivered to users.
Tracking technologies include locally shared objects (also known as ‘Flash cookies,’) HTML cookies, or other tracking software that stores data on your device on behalf of third parties. These files may be installed through your browser or other software on your computer that is used by your browser. To control the storage of data through such software users may be required to change their preferences in the software itself, through a browser, or through the use of specialized add-ons or plug ins.
Information from cookies, web beacons and tracking technologies can be aggregated and used to determine patterns of behavior on websites, to save your preferences, to analyze a user’s behavior when entering and leaving the site, or to deliver relevant advertising to a user on that site or on other sites on the web. Over time, cookies or data collected from web beacons and tracking technologies can be aggregated to create anonymous user profiles that identify and analyze your preferences.

Please read below to learn more about the categories of specific cookies, web beacons and tracking technologies that we use. If you have any additional questions about any cookies, web beacons or tracking technologies that we use, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Sites may also require certain cookies, web beacons and tracking technologies that enable various operations on the webpages. For example, our Sites may request the installation of a cookie to maintain an active session, or to keep you logged in to your account. We do not seek your consent to use these essential technologies.
You can control cookies, web beacons and tracking technologies or withdraw your consent to their collection in several ways. First, many browsers allow you to change the settings such that the browser will either allow or block the installation of cookies. You may also delete all cookies stored by your browser using your browser’s privacy menu. Other applications, such as Adobe Flash, may allow you to choose settings for locally shared objects and other items.
Many modern browsers include a “do not track” feature that may help protect your privacy, although there is no defined response by many websites (including our Sites) to a do-not-track request.
