What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer, mobile phone, tablet, or other device when you visit certain websites. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
We use a number of different cookies on our Sites, including strictly necessary, performance, advertising, and social media or content cookies. Cookies make your browsing experience better by allowing the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login and region selection). This means you don’t have to re-enter this information each time you return to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies also provide information on how people use the website, for instance whether it’s their first time visiting or if they are a frequent visitor.
The performance cookies we use include:
Finally, Social and Content cookies are placed by many social media plugins (for example the Facebook ’like’ button), and other tools meant to provide or improve the content on a website (for example services that allow the playing of video files, or that create comments sections). We integrate these modules into our platform to improve the experience of browsing and interacting with our websites. Please note that some of these third party services place cookies that are also used for things like behavioral advertising, analytics, and/or market research.
We use first and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for analytics, customer support, and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific area of the Websites you visit):

Essential Cookies. These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Sites and to use some of their features, such as access to secure areas of our Services. For example, we use user-input cookies, multimedia content cookies, load balancing session cookies, user interface customization cookies. These essential cookies may be used only for the session, but others have longer durations. Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver functionality on our Sites and Services, you cannot opt-out of receiving them. You can block or delete them by changing your browser settings however, as described below under the heading “How can I control cookies?”, if you disable cookies in your browser, your access to some functionality and areas of our Websites may be restricted.

Advertising Cookies. We do not currently serve advertising on our Sites or Services. However, in the event that we do in the future, we and/or third parties may serve cookies on your computer, mobile phone, tablet or other device to serve advertising through our Sites or Services. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (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 Websites or opened an email that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so disabling cookies altogether or opting out of individual cookies will impair their functioning.
How can I control cookies?
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can choose whether or not to accept cookies through your browser controls, often found in your browser’s “Tools” or “Preferences” menu. For more information on how to modify your browser settings or how to block, manage or filter cookies can be found in your browser’s help file or through such sites as: www.allaboutcookies.org.
Many of the third party advertising networks and other tracking services offer you a way to opt-out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
