Cookies, Tracking Technology, and Interest-based Advertising
Like many websites, we use tracking technologies such as cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to record your preferences, track the use of our Websites and exposure to our online advertisements. We may also use these technologies to monitor traffic, improve the Websites, and make it easier to use and more relevant. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can usually modify your browser setting to disable or reject cookies. If you delete your cookies or if you set your browser to decline cookies, some features of the Website may not work or may not work as designed.
We may partner with third-party advertising companies who also use these tracking tools to provide advertisements on our Websites or other websites. These third parties may use these technologies to collect information about you when you use the Websites. They may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may also use persistent identifiers to track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond the Websites. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. While we do not knowingly provide these entities with information that personally identifies you, such third parties may with sufficient data from other sources be able to personally identify you, unknown to us. To learn more about the third-party collection and use of your information and to opt-out, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance.
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 services does not mean that you will not receive our advertising, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude you from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms.
Some content or applications on the Websites may be served by unaffiliated third parties. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any website not operated by us to which our Websites link or that link to our Websites.
Your browser or device may include "Do Not Track" functionality. Our information collection and disclosure practices, and the choices that we provide to visitors will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Statement, whether or not a Do Not Track signal is received.
How We Secure Your Information
We take reasonable security measures to help protect the personal information collected through our Websites. Please understand, however, that while we try our best to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
You can help protect the privacy of your own information by using encryption and other techniques to prevent unauthorized interception of your personal information. You are responsible for the security of any personal information that you transmit to us or view, download, or otherwise access when using unencrypted, public or otherwise unsecured networks.
