What are Cookies and other collection technologies and how do we use them?
- Provide you with personalized content based on your use of our website
- Enable you to more easily use our website by remembering and using contact information, purchasing information, and registration information
- Evaluate, monitor and analyze the use of our site and its traffic patterns to help improve our website and services
- Assist us with ad reporting functions such as to learn which ads are bringing users to our website
The types of technologies we use include:
Some cookies are “persistent cookies.” They are used by us each time you access our Website. We use a persistent cookie to identify when a user has accepted pop-up disclaimers and terms on our website. We use this cookie to avoid repeated pop-up disclaimers and terms. If you disable these cookies, part of the website may not work.
Other cookies are called “session cookies.” Session cookies are used only during a specific browsing session. We may use a session cookie, for example, to remember that you have already navigated through a particular menu, or that you have entered in age information for a portion of a site that is restricted by age.
We may also use “analytics cookies” that allow Google Analytics services to recognize your browser or device and, for example, identify whether you have visited our Website before, what you have previously viewed or clicked on, and how you found us. This information is provided anonymously for statistical analysis only. Google Analytics cookies are usually persistent cookies.
Where we include links to social networking, such as LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, you may use these links to enable you to share content with your peers or networks or review information that we post on social media. Cookies set by these social media providers are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interest.
You may disable browser cookies in your browser or set your browser to warn you when a cookie is being sent. You may lose some features or functionality when you disable cookies. Remember, also, that disabling cookies is browser specific. For example, if you log on using Microsoft Edge, you must also disable cookies in Safari if you use that browser at a different time.
For further information about deleting or blocking cookies, please visit: https://www.aboutcookies.org/.
We may also employ a software technology known as a pixel tag or Web beacon. A pixel tag is a line of code that we place on our websites or in emails which allows us to analyze our marketing and the general usage patterns of visitors to our websites. These help us better manage content on our website by informing us what content or promotions are effective. Unless you consent, we do not collect personally identifiable information from you through the use of pixel tags. You may not disable pixel tags.
IP Addresses and Log Files
We record the IP addresses of visitors to our website. Recording these IP addresses is necessary for the website to function. Our server software keeps access logs, error logs, and security audit logs. This collection is critical in detecting and preventing fraud or unauthorized system access and addressing threats such as a DOS attack. We do not associate this log file information with other information.
