Websites are now required to obtain explicit consent when using or storing cookies (or similar technologies) on your computer or mobile device if you are located in the European Union.

This policy intends to provide our visitors with clear and comprehensive information about the cookies we use and the purposes for using those cookies. For more information on how we use your personal information, see our Privacy Policy.

When you visit or interact with the Services we or our authorized providers may use cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies for storing information to help provide you with a good experience when you browse our Sites and also allow us to improve our Sites. Here is information to help you understand these technologies better.

  1. What are cookies and similar technologies?
    Cookies are small data files that are stored by the web browser (for example, Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Safari) on your computer, mobile device, tablet, or other internet-enabled devices (referred to collectively as a “Device”). Cookies allow a web server to transfer data to a device for recordkeeping and other purposes. They allow websites to store things like user preferences so that they can recognize you when you come back and respond appropriately. These cookies allow us to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our Sites and the Services.
  2. What types of cookies, web beacons and similar technologies do we use?
    Our use of such technologies falls into the following general categories:
    • Strictly necessary – these are cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies that are required for the operation of our Sites. They include, for example, technologies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Sites, use a shopping cart, or make use of e-billing services.
    • Analytical/performance – They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors to our Sites and to see how visitors move around our Sites. This helps us to improve the way our Sites work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
    • Functionality – These are used to recognize you when you return to our Sites, which enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
    • Advertising or targeting-related – These technologies record your visit to the Sites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our Sites and the advertising displayed on them more relevant to your interests. We may repurpose or retarget the information we gather about you, We may also share this information with our advertisers, lead buyers, and with third parties for advertising and retargeting purposes.
    • Pixels – We use pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These pixels are provided by our ad management partners or other advertising networks and advertisers. These files enable our ad management partner to recognize a unique cookie on your Internet browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our Sites.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Sites and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information from you.

In the course of serving advertisements to the Sites, our partners may place or recognize a unique cookie on a user’s browser.
