Cookies & Other Tracking Technologies & How We Use Them

Like many companies, we use cookies and other tracking technologies on our Site (referred to together from this point forward as “cookies”, unless otherwise stated) including HTTP cookies, HTML5 and Flash local storage, web beacons/GIFs, embedded scripts and e-tags/cache browsers as defined below.

We use both session and persistent tracking technologies. Tracking technologies (e.g., cookies) can either be persistent (i.e., they remain on your computer until you delete them) or temporary (i.e., they last only until you close your browser).

We also use first and third-party cookies. First party cookies are used and controlled by us to provide services on the Site. Third-party cookies are controlled by third-parties, mostly for the purpose of advertising and analytics.

In particular, our Site uses the following categories of cookies:

Controlling the HTML5 local storage on your browser depends on which browser you use. For more information regarding your specific browser please consult the browser’s website (often in the Help section).
