Cookies and Analytics

We may use “cookies” for authentication, analytics, performance, functional and marketing purposes. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the computer hard drive or memory containing information about the user.

We or our third-party advertising providers may use cookies, small pixel files (small images) and/or other technologies to keep track of your browser so that you will be recognized when you visit other websites where our third-party advertising providers may show you advertisements from us based on your visit to our website. Some of these advertisements may be customized to particular products and services that you viewed or they may be based on inferences about products and services that you might be interested in. This is called "interest-based advertising".

You can opt out of these interest-based advertising campaigns by turning off cookies in your browser, as described above. Please note that if you opt-out of interest-based advertising you may still see advertisements from us on other websites. However, they will not be customized based on your browsing history on our website.
