Cookies Overview

A “cookie” is a small text file that is stored on your browser or device by websites, apps, online media, and advertisements that are used to remember your browser or device during and across the website visit(s).

There are two broad categories of cookies:

  • First party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device.

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are “session cookies”, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are “permanent cookies”, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by websites to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

We may use cookies for several purposes, including:

You have the right to choose whether to accept cookies (except for strictly necessary cookies that are set up by default). However, they are an important part of how our website works, so you should be aware that if you choose to refuse or remove cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the website to you.

You can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. If you previously accepted cookies and you wish to change your selection, you must delete your browser’s cookies. For more information on deleting your browser’s cookies, go to https://www.aboutcookies.org/how-to-delete-cookies. After you have deleted your browser’s cookies, if you enter our website again, you will be prompted to accept or reject cookies.

If you access our website through mobile devices, you can enable a "do not track" feature so as to control interest-based advertising on an iOS or Android mobile device by selecting the “Limit Add Tracking” option in the privacy section of your Settings on iOS or via advertising preferences on Android devices (e.g. in Google Settings). This will not prevent the display of advertisements but will mean that they will no longer be personalized to your interests.

Third Party Cookies

Our partners (e.g. Google Analytics, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) may use these technologies on our website to help us better understand you.

Similar technologies

We may also use other similar technologies such as pixels and local storage.

Pixels are small amounts of code placed on a web page. We may use pixels to learn whether you've interacted with a specific web. This helps us measure and improve our website and personalize your experience.

A local storage is a file created by a website on your device. We use local storage to save data on your device. We use data from local storage to customize what we show you based on your past interactions with our website.

You have the right to choose whether to accept these similar technologies or not. However, they are an important part of how our website works, so you should be aware that if you choose to refuse them, this could affect the availability and functionality of the website.
