We may use cookies and similar tracking technologies (like web beacons and pixels) to access or store information. In some cases, we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information.

What is a cookie, and what kinds of cookies are there? It's a pretty simple concept! Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or work more efficiently, as well to provide reporting information to them.

There are two types of cookies. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, us) are called first party cookies. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called third party cookies. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (such as advertising, interactive content, or analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

We may use web beacons to collect to access or store information as well. Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors on a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (or sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Site. This allows us, for example, to monitor traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to this website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website and to improve site performance. In many instances, these techonlogies are reliant on cookies to function properly.
