Information We May Collect About You
Like most websites, we may use automatic data collection technology when you visit the Website to record information that identifies your computer, to track your use of the Website, and to collect certain basic information about you and your surfing habits. This may include information about your operating system, IP addresses, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, keywords, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of the Website you visit, and similar information concerning your use of the Website.
We may collect this information by using cookies and pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs). Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movement of website users. You can reject cookies by following the directions when you first visit our Website and/or by changing these preferences at a later time, or by following the directions provided in your internet provider’s “help” file. If you reject cookies, you may still visit the Website, but you may not be able to use some areas of the Website and/or other services provided on the Website.
The categories of cookies used on this Website are as follows:
- Necessary cookies: Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of a website. The Website cannot function properly without these cookies.
- Preferences cookies: Preferences cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way a website behaves or looks, like your preferred language or the region that you are in.
- Statistics cookies: Statistic cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
- Marketing cookies: Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third-party advertisers.
We do not collect Personal Information in this manner, but if you’ve provided us with Personal Information, we may associate that information with the information that is collected automatically. Automatic data collection may be performed on our behalf by our service providers.
We do not control these third-parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly. For information about how you can opt out of receiving targeted advertising from many providers, see Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Information.
