We use this information to help us administer the Website, remember your preferences, and diagnose technical problems. We also analyze the information for aggregate trends about how our Website is used and to help improve the Website.
To collect this information, we may use the following technologies:
Cookies. Cookies are small data files sent by a website and stored on the computer or device at the request of that site. Cookies store information related to a user’s browser to enable us to recognize the browser on return visits to our Website and to remember your preferences.
Pixel tags. A pixel tag (also referred to as a “clear gif” or “web beacon”) allows us to track the online usage patterns of the Website and to understand which links are clicked, or when you open emails that we may send to you. We use this information to help us improve the Website and our communications.
HTML5 Storage. HTML5 storage or local storage allows us to distinguish your device from others and to remember information that might be important for the functioning of the Website, such as to remember your logged in state. Typically, HTML5 storage is only deleted if all Internet history, cache, and cookies are deleted. Check your browser controls for information on how to delete your HTML5 storage.

Most browsers can be set to detect and provide the option to reject browser cookies, but doing so may affect certain Website features that are provided for your convenience. To learn more about browser cookies, including how to manage or delete them, refer to the “Tools,” “Help,” or similar section of your web browser.
We do not serve targeted advertising on our Website, however, when you use the Internet, we and our third parties, as well as unaffiliated third parties, including ad networks, analytics companies, and social networking platforms, may use tracking technologies such as those described above to collect information about your online activities over time and across our and other websites. We and they may use this information in order to measure the effectiveness of our advertising and to serve you advertisements that may be of interest to you. As with most sites, we do not honor “do not track” signals transmitted by web browsers as there is no industry standard for implementing such programs.
For more information about third party advertisers and how to prevent them from using your information, visit the NAI’s consumer website at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. If you want to opt out using these tools, you need to opt out separately for each of your devices and for each web browser (such as Chrome, Edge Firefox, Safari or others) that you use on each device.
