What are cookies and similar technologies?
Cookies are text files that websites store and access on a visitor’s device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser to allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website for the purposes of helping you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, enabling functionality, helping us understand activity and patterns, and facilitating online advertising.
Local storage technologies, like HTML5, provide cookie-equivalent functionality but can store larger amounts of data, including on your device outside of your browser in connection with specific applications.
Web beacons, also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs, are tools used to monitor website activity and track user behavior such as the webpages you access, the content you interact with and the emails you open.
We use both persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your device for a set period or until you delete them, while session cookies are deleted once you close your web browser. We use persistent cookies, for example, to record your choice of language and country location. Session cookies allow us to track your behavior and real-time changes in your activity while on the website, and create a better browsing experience by showing you potentially interesting items based on your browsing activity during that particular browsing session.
The cookies placed through your use of our website are either set by us (first-party cookies) or by a third party at our request (third-party cookies).
What types of cookies and similar technologies do we use?
We use the following categories of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They allow us to enable security, prevent fraud and debug the website, and are usually only set in response to actions made by you that amount to a request, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but then some parts of the website will not work.
Functional cookies: These cookies allow the website to remember a user’s preferences and the choices they make on the site, such as language or region. Their purpose is to enhance the user’s experience with the site and improve the quality of the service provided by recognizing you when you return to our website. Blocking functional cookies would impact the user experience.
Analytical cookies: These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the website. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our website and will not be able to monitor its performance. We use analytics services to run tests that help us understand how users access and use the website.
Advertising cookies: These cookies allow us to tailor our advertising to you by displaying advertisements based on relevant topics that interest you as shown by your browsing activity, and to track your behavior across different websites. These cookies also allow us to measure the effectiveness of our advertising. Such cookies may be capable of understanding your interests across other sites and building up a profile that is used for remarketing purposes. If you do not allow these cookies, you may experience less tailored advertisements.
We may incorporate tracking technologies into our own website as well as into our ads displayed on other websites and services. Some of these tracking technologies on our website and within our advertisements may track your activities across time and services for purposes of associating the different devices you use and delivering relevant ads and/or other content to you.
In addition, we may work with agencies, advertisers, ad networks, and other technology services to place ads about our products and services on other websites and services.
