We use common tracking technologies
We collect personal information about users over time and across different websites and devices when you use this website or service. Third parties also collect personal information this way on our sites and services. To do this, we use several common tracking tools. Our vendors and partners may also use these tools. These may include browser cookies. We may also use web beacons, flash cookies, and similar technologies. We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on this website. Session cookies will generally be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
We use tracking technologies for a variety of reasons
We and our partners use tracking tools:
- To recognize new or past visitors and customers.
- To store your password if you are a subscriber.
- To improve our website.
- To serve you with interest-based or targeted advertising (see below for more on interest-based advertising).
- To observe your behaviors and browsing activities over time across multiple websites or other platforms.
- To better understand the interests of our customers and our website visitors.
We use specific tracking technologies
We use certain tracking technologies cookies on our sites to improve our site and the experience of our visitors.
We engage in interest-based advertising
We and our partners display interest-based advertising using information gathered about you over time across multiple websites, devices, or other platforms. This might include apps. Interest-based advertising or “online behavioral advertising” includes ads served to you after you leave a website, encouraging you to return. These ads may be served after you leave our website, or after you leave the websites of third parties. They also include ads we and our partners think are relevant based on your browsing habits or online activities. These ads might be served on websites or on apps. They might also be served in emails. We might serve these ads, or third parties may serve ads. They might be about our products or other companies’ products.
How do we gather relevant information about you for interest-based advertising?
To decide what is relevant to you, we and our partners use information you make available when you interact with us, our affiliates, and other third parties. This information is gathered using the tracking tools described above. For example, we or our partners might look at your purchases or browsing behaviors. We and our partners might look at these activities on our platforms or the platforms of others. We work with third parties who help gather this information.
You can control certain tracking tools
Our Do Not Track Policy: Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a U.S. website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals.
If you block cookies, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop. Certain options you select are browser and device specific.
You can opt-out of online behavioral advertising
The Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising run by the Digital Advertising Alliance provides consumers with the ability to opt-out of having their online behavior recorded and used for advertising purposes. Certain choices you make are both browser and device-specific. If you opt out of online behavioral advertising (or interest-based advertising) or reject cookies, this will not stop you from seeing advertising – this will just not be tailored to your interests and therefore is less likely to be relevant to you.
