Cookies Notice & Analytics & Advertising Related Choices

Last Updated December 31, 2019

When you use our Services, we and our third-party partners (which provide content, advertising, functionality, measurements, or analytics for our Services) may use cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies to collection information about your use of the Services for the purposes of information storage and access; personalization of our Services; measurement of and analytics regarding the use of our Services; content selection, delivery, and reporting; and advertising selection, targeting, delivery, and reporting.

  1. Cookies
    • Cookies are small text files that are stored in your device’s browser when you visit a website that enable the business that places the cookie business to recognize a user across one or more browsing sessions, and across one or more websites.
    • We and third parties use cookies for a variety of purposes, including to remember your sign-in credentials and preferences; to customize your experience, including by providing relevant content and ads on our websites and elsewhere online; and to monitor traffic and performance, so that we may improve our Services and your experience.

  2. Beacons
    • Web beacons (also called “web tags” or “pixels”) are tiny graphics or scripts that communicate information from your device to a server. Beacons can be embedded in online or mobile content, videos, advertisements, or emails. They allow a server to read certain types of information from your device, such as when you viewed the beacon (and thus the content in which it is embedded) and the IP address of the device on which you viewed the beacon.
    • We and third parties use beacons for a variety of purposes, including to analyze the use of our Services and (in conjunction with cookies) to provide content and ads that are more relevant to you.

  3. Analytics
    • We may use third party analytics services (such as Google Analytics) that use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to collect information such as your device identifiers and usage information in order to help us analyze how users interact with and use the Services, compile reports on the Services’ activity, and provide other data and insights related to the Services’ usage.

  4. Advertising
    • We also allow our third-party partners, third party ad serving networks, and unaffiliated advertisers (collectively, “Advertisers”) to use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to provide ads about goods and services that may be of interest to you. Advertisers may place a separate cookie or tracking technologies to collect device identifiers and information about your online activities over time and across websites and services (and in some instances across devices or browsers) in order to provide interest-based advertising or other targeted content.
    • We may not have access to these cookies, although we may use statistical information arising from the cookies provided by these third parties to customize content and for the other purposes described above.
    • Advertisers may use persistent identifiers, however, to track your internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond our Services.
    • In general, the information collected and generated by third parties is processed and stored by the third parties and will be subject to their respective privacy policies (which we do not control and for which we are not responsible).

  5. Controls for Cookies.

    Most web browsers allow you to modify your settings to disable or reject cookies. If you delete your cookies or if you set your web browser to decline cookies, however, some features of the Services may not work or may not work as designed. You can usually find these settings in the Options or Preferences menu of your browser; links to instructions provided by several of the most common browsers are below:

  6. Choices for Targeted Advertising and Analytics

    Many of the third-party advertisers that use tracking or targeting tools in connection with our Services either directly, or are members of programs that, offer you additional choices regarding the collection and use of your information for targeted advertising. You can learn more about the options available by visiting their websites:

  7. The Services may deliver advertising using the vendor DoubleClick, a Google company. You can read about how DoubleClick uses cookies, use Google’s controls for blocking certain ads, or use Google’s Ad Settings Page to control how DoubleClick personalizes your ad experience.

    The Services may use Google Analytics to track your usage. If you wish to opt-out of Google Analytics’ tracking, use this browser add-on provided by Google.

    Similarly, you can learn about your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through your device settings. For more information about how to change these settings for Apple, Android or Windows devices, see:

    Please note that opting-out of advertising networks’ tracking and targeting does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our Services or on other websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will exclude you, however, from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms.
