- TARGETED ADVERTISING
We may permit third parties, such as network advertisers and ad exchanges that use tracking technologies on our Websites, to do so in order to provide tailored advertisements on our behalf and/or on behalf of other advertisers across the web. We may use third-party analytics service providers to evaluate and provide us and/or third parties with information about the use of these ads on third-party sites and viewing of ads and of our content. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements, which may be based on your activities (including past visits to our Websites) across the web and mobile media (“Targeted Advertising”).
Targeted Advertising (also known as Behavioral Ads) uses information collected on an individual's web browsing behavior on one website (such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made) in order to target advertising to that individual on another website. Targeting called Cross Device Tracking can also take place across devices such as tablets, smartphones, laptops and smart televisions. Third parties collect this information by placing or accessing cookies or other tracking technologies in your browser when you visit this, or other, websites.
Behavioral Ads enable us to target advertisements to you for products and services in which we believe you might be interested. If you object to receiving Behavioral Ads from us on third party sites, you can learn more about your ability to limit Behavioral Ads below. Our third-party ad network and exchange providers, the advertisers, and/or traffic measurement services may themselves set and access their own technologies on your device and track certain behavioral usage information via a device identifier. These third-party technologies may be set to, among other things: (a) help deliver advertisements to you that you might be interested in; (b) prevent you from seeing the same advertisements; and (c) understand the usefulness of the advertisements that have been delivered to you.
We also may use analytics which identify specific behavior, demographic, and interest data of our users on our Site.
While sites use a variety of companies to serve advertisements, you may wish to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp , which provides information regarding this practice by Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) members, and your choices regarding having this information used by these companies, including the “opt-out” procedures of NAI members. Opting out of one or more NAI members only means that those NAI members no longer will be allowed under their own rules to deliver Behavioral Ads to you, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads. You may also opt-out of receiving Behavioral Ads on participating sites and services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) website at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ .
Please note, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit an opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use multiple devices or change web browsers, your opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective. We are not responsible for effectiveness of or compliance with any third parties’ opt-out options or programs.
VII. COOKIES POLICY
- What are cookies?
Cookies are tiny text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely (but anonymously) identify your browser or device. They are unable to search your computer in any way, cannot introduce viruses to your computer and contain no personal identifying information about you.
- What are cookies used for?
Cookies are used by sites or services when they want to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. These cookies on your computer or device can then be used to help remember your preferences (such as language), help you navigate between pages efficiently, and generally improve your browsing experience.
Cookies are also used for online advertising – by aggregating the very basic information cookies gather, informed guesses can be made about your demographic and ads targeted to you.
- What types of cookies do We use?
There are four categories of cookies that we use: “Strictly Necessary,” “Performance,” “Functionality,” and “Targeting.”
- Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around our Site and use its features.
- Performance Cookies. These cookies collect information about how you have used our Site, using analytics to track the basic user behavior on this site so we can try and improve our users experience.
- Targeting Cookies. Our advertising partners or other third-party partners may use these types of cookies to deliver advertising that is relevant to your interests. These cookies can remember that your device has visited a site or service, and may also be able to track your device’s browsing activity on other sites or services. This information may be shared with other organizations, such as advertisers and/or advertising networks to deliver the advertising, and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign, or other business partners for the purpose of providing aggregate service usage statistics and aggregate Service testing.
- Functionality Cookies. These cookies allow our site to remember how you are logged in, when you logged in or out, and possibly anything you have done on our Site while logged in. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous, and they are not used to track your browsing activity on other sites or services.
- How long will cookies stay on my device?
The amount of time a cookie stays on your device is variable: the majority of cookies expire after the end of your browsing session– others persist for longer. In online advertising you can generally expect that most advertising cookies will last about one month.
- First and third party cookies
First-party cookies are cookies that belong to Us, and third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your device through our Site. Third-party cookies may be placed on your device by someone providing a service for Us, for example, to help us understand how our Site is being used. Third-party cookies may also be placed on your device by our business affiliates and partners so that they can use them to advertise products and services to you elsewhere on the web.
- How to control and delete cookies
Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit your web browser controls and settings for your devices.
VIII. WEB BEACONS

This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.
We use a third party to gather information about how you and others use our Site. For example, we will know how many users access a specific page and which links they clicked on. We use this information to understand and optimize how our website is used and also to personalize your user experience.
The security of your personal information is important to us.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
