We may also use cookies to tailor web content to match your browser capability. These cookies are not linked to any Personal Information. However, some of the information we collect may include data, such as IP address data or other identifiers, that are unique to your browser.

We may also use and place cookies on your device from our third-party service providers in connection with the website, such as an analytics provider that helps us manage and analyze website usage. An example of such third-party is Google Analytics, which we use to collect and analyze demographic and other information, and through which Google will collect certain information to be used according to Google’s privacy practices.

Interest-Based Advertising

Third parties may use information collected about you on the website in connection with their own information to deliver targeted advertising to you when you visit other websites. Cookies, described above, may be used in this process. For example, if you are searching for information on a particular product or service, our vendor may cause an advertisement to appear on other websites you view with information on that product. This form of advertising is called “behavioral advertising” or “interest-based advertising.” We believe that such advertising is helpful because you will see ads that are relevant to your interests. We comply with the self-regulatory principles for online behavioral advertising set forth by the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). You can opt-out of behavioral advertising from certain providers at aboutads.info/consumers.

Do Not Track

Please note that we do not respond to or honor “do not track” (a/k/a/ DNT) signals or similar mechanisms transmitted by web browsers.

As noted above, you may opt-out of or restrict the placement of cookies on your device or remove them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences. To opt-out of the use of Google Analytics, click here. By deleting our cookies or disabling future cookies you may not be able to access certain areas or features of our website or some of its functionality may be affected.

You can opt-out of targeted advertising from certain providers at aboutads.info/consumers. Please note that by opting out, you will continue to see generic advertising that is not tailored to your specific interests and activities. To be clear, cookie-based opt-outs must be performed on each device and browser that you wish to have opted-out.
