What Is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive by a web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies are essential to the Site, Software, and/or Services, and will always be used. Web beacons, tags, and scripts may be used in the Site or in emails to help us deliver cookies and count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon.
We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by our service/analytics providers (i.e. Google Analytics) on an individual and aggregated basis.
For example, when you use our Site, we may place a number of cookies in your browser. We use these cookies to enable us to hold session information as you navigate from page to page within the Site, improve your experience, and track and analyze usage and other statistical information.
If you elect not to activate the cookie or to later disable cookies, you may still visit our Site, and use our Software or Services, but your ability to use some features or areas of those offerings may be limited.

Types of Cookies We Uses
Many jurisdictions require or recommend that website operators inform users/visitors as to the nature of cookies they utilize and, in certain circumstances, obtain the consent of their users to the placement of certain cookies. Each cookie used by us falls within one of the following categories:
Essential cookies (First-Party Cookies) are sometimes called “strictly necessary,” as without them we cannot provide many services that you need. For example, essential cookies help remember your preferences as you use our Site, Software, and/or Services.
These cookies track information about your visits and usage of the Site, Software, and/or Services so that we can make improvements and report our performance — for example, to analyze visitor and user behavior so as to provide the more relevant content or suggest certain activities.
We might also use analytics cookies to test new ads, pages, or features to see how users react to them. Google Analytics is the main technology we currently use in this regard. To learn more about Google Analytics and your privacy, read the article “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps.” To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics when using our website, visit this page.
Functionality or preference cookies
During your visit to the Site, or while you use our Software or Services, cookies are used to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username, language, or your region).
They also store your preferences when personalizing the Site, Software, and/or Services to optimize your use of the website (i.e. your preferred language). These preferences are remembered through the use of persistent cookies, and the next time you visit the Site or use our Software and/or Services, you will not have to set them again.
Targeting or advertising cookies
These Third-Party Cookies are placed by third-party advertising platforms or networks in order to deliver ads and track ad performance or enable advertising networks to deliver ads that may be relevant to you based upon your activities (this is sometimes called “behavioral tracking” or “targeted” advertising) on the Site.
They may subsequently use information about your visit to target you with advertising that you may be interested in on the Site and other websites. You can opt out of interest-based targeting provided by participating ad servers through the Digital Advertising Alliance.
