What are “Cookies” and “Web Beacons” and what do they do for me?
“Cookies” are tiny pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are also used to ensure that you are not repeatedly sent the same banner ads and to customize webpage content based on your browser type (Netscape or Microsoft Explorer, for example). Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies.
Web Beacons – sometimes called single-pixel gifs or clear gifs – are used to assist in delivering cookies on our Web Sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include Web Beacons in promotional e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
If you want to disable cookies, there is a simple procedure in most Internet browsers that allows you to turn off cookies. Please remember, however, that cookies may be required to allow you to use certain features of our Web Sites.
Third Party Advertising
We may use third-party advertising, data analytics and online targeting companies to serve ads when you visit our Web Sites or use our applications. We may also provide certain personally identifiable information and other information to these third-parties to allow them to more effectively target advertising to you. These companies are obligated to protect your information, but you may opt-out of this sharing through the process described here.
When advertisements are displayed to you on our Web Sites and applications, one or more persistent cookies may be placed on your computer or device by us or a third party. Some of these third parties may use information (including personally identifiable information) about your visits to this site and other websites and usage of applications in order to provide data and targeting recommendations based on which you may receive advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
