Third parties, widgets, and hosted solutions that we use on our website may use the following technologies for features, services, advertising, or analytics:
Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a website’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Browser cookies allow websites and various third-parties to distinguish your device from others by having the cookie consist of a unique identifier or other data. Cookies can be used to provide you with a tailored user experience and to make it easier for you to use a website upon a future visit. We may include cookies on our Website and use them to recognize you when you return to our Website. We use both session cookies (which expire after you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Persistent cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. You may set your browser so that it does not accept cookies. Cookies must be enabled on your Web browser, however, in order for you to access certain personalized features of our services that we may make available. Thus, if you choose to disable cookies, some areas of our website may not work properly.
We may also employ cookies to serve ads to users on other platforms and networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the Google Display Network, based on prior web behavior.
We, along with our third-party vendors, such as Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies or other third-party identifiers to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
Opting out: You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you by using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out of the use of third-party cookies by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page. You can permanently opt-out by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.
Local Shared Objects. Local shared objects (such as “Flash” cookies) are associated with non-Browser software like Flash Player. Local shared objects can be used like cookies to distinguish your device from others, but will not be deleted or blocked using browser cookie controls. You can visit adobe.com for guidance on how to delete and block Flash cookies.
E-tags. E-tags are used to prevent duplicative downloading of content to your browser, which can enhance browser performance. E-tags use unique identifiers for content that can also be used to distinguish your browser in certain instances from others. Typically e-tags are only deleted if all Internet history, cache, and cookies are deleted. You should check your browser software for how to delete e-tags in your particular case.
HTML5 Local Storage. HTML5 local storage is another way that browsers can distinguish your device from others as well as remember data that may be important for the functioning of the website. Typically HTML5 local storage is only deleted if all Internet history, cache, and cookies are deleted. You should check your browser software for how to delete HTML5 local storage in your particular case.
Other technologies. Our website may occasionally use other technologies both for purposes of advertising as well as for features and services.
