The Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies We Use.
A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. A “session cookie” expires immediately when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). A “persistent cookie” stores information on the hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. Web beacons and tags are small strings of code that are used in conjunction with a cookie and that allow us to record activity on our websites. When you visit our website, we may use both a session and a persistent cookie. This cookie may contain information (such as a unique user ID) that is used to track your usage of our website. A web beacon allows us to capture certain additional types of information about a visitor’s actions on a website, such as a visitor’s cookie number, the time, date, duration, and number of page views, a description of the page where the web beacon is placed, and details about any items that were purchased.
Which Internet Advertising Programs We Engage.
Currently, we use third party-placed tracking pixels and cookies from Google. We may convert your email address into a unique value which can be matched by Google with a user on their platform to allow us to serve you interest-based advertising. Although we do not provide any personal information to these platform vendors, they may gain insights about individuals who respond to the ads we serve.
In the future, we may partner with other companies to provide interest-based advertising, both on and off this website. If this occurs, we will provide you with an opportunity to opt out when these advertisements are served. You may manage your advertising preferences by Visiting Google’s Ad Settings. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices for not having this information used by third-party service providers, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
