Cookies

We use cookies to personalize our Site for you and to collect aggregate information about Site usage by all of our users. A cookie is a text file that our Site transfers to your Device for record-keeping purposes and to enhance the quality of your visit to our Site or to enable our system to recognize your Device and allow us to see how you use our site. The cookie assigns a random, unique number to your Device. Further general information about cookies and how they work is available at www.allaboutcookies.org.

The cookies we use on our Site include:

  1. Session cookies: These temporary cookies expire and are automatically erased whenever you close your browser window. We use session cookies to grant our users access to content and to enable actions they must be logged in to do.
  2. Persistent cookies: These usually have an expiration date in the distant future and remain in your browser until they expire or you manually delete them. We use persistent cookies to better understand usage patterns so we can improve the Site for our users. For example, we may use a persistent cookie to associate you with your user account or to remember your choices on the Site, but this only works when cookies on our site are enabled.
  3. Third party cookies: We may permit limited third parties to place cookies through the Site to provide us with better insights into the use of the Site or user demographics or to provide relevant advertising to you. These third parties may collect information about a user’s online activities over time and across different websites when he or she uses our Site. For example, we may use analytics service providers like Google Analytics to analyze usage patterns of the Site. These providers generate a cookie to capture information about your use of the Site which is then used to compile reports on Site activity for us and to provide other related services. These providers may use a portion of your IP address to identify their cookie, but this will not be associated with any other data held by these providers.

We may also permit third party service providers to place cookies through our Site, as indicated above, to perform analytic or marketing functions where you are notified of them and you have consented to the usage. We do not control the use of such third party cookies or the resulting information and we are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third-party service providers.

Your use of our Site will be deemed to be your consent to the placement of cookies on your computer or other Device. If you prefer not to receive cookies through our Site, you can set your browser to either reject all cookies, to allow only “trusted” websites to set them, or to accept only those cookies from those sites you are currently on. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our Site and use it.

If you refuse cookies, this will limit system performance and may cause certain features of the Site to malfunction or not to work at all.
