Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are commonly used by website owners to make their websites work better or more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first-party and third-party cookies for a variety of reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons for our websites to function, and these are referred to as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies allow us to track and target our users’ interests in order to improve their experience on our Online Properties. Cookies are served by third parties through our websites for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is explained in greater detail below.

The following are the specific types of first- and third-party cookies served through our websites, as well as the purposes they serve (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit):

How can I control cookies?

You have the option of accepting or rejecting cookies. You can exercise your cookie rights by configuring your Cookie Consent Manager preferences. The Cookie Consent Manager lets you choose which types of cookies to accept or reject. Essential cookies cannot be rejected because they are required to provide you with services.

The Cookie Consent Manager is accessible via the notification banner and our website. If you reject cookies, you may still use our website, but your access to certain functionality and areas of our website may be limited. You can also configure your web browser to accept or reject cookies. Because the methods for refusing cookies through your web browser controls differ from browser to browser, you should consult your browser’s help menu for more information.

Essential website cookies:

These cookies are strictly necessary in order for us to provide you with services available through our websites and for you to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to identify and track website visitors. Other, similar technologies, such as web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”), may be used from time to time. These are small graphics files with a unique identifier that allow us to know when someone has visited our websites or opened an e-mail containing them. This allows us to monitor user traffic patterns from one page within a website to another, deliver or communicate with cookies, determine whether you came to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, improve site performance, and measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns, among other things. Many of these technologies rely on cookies to function properly, so refusing cookies will impair their performance.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Websites may also use “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to collect and store information about your use of our services, as well as for fraud prevention and other site operations. If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can use the tools in the Website Storage Settings Panel to change the settings of your Flash player to prevent Flash Cookie storage. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions on how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to as “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your permission, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are visiting).

Please keep in mind that restricting or limiting Flash Cookie acceptance in the Flash Player may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including potentially Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

To serve advertising through our websites, third parties may place cookies on your computer or mobile device. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites to provide you with relevant advertisements about goods and services in which you might be interested. They may also use technology to assess the effectiveness of advertisements. They can accomplish this 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 that may be of interest to you. Unless you choose to provide them, the information collected through this process does not allow us or them to identify your name, contact information, or other details that directly identify you.
