A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
We use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser window) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until they expire or until you delete them) to provide you with more personal and interactive experiences on the Website. Persistent cookies can be removed by following the help directions for your internet browser. If you choose to disable all or most cookies, some areas of the Website may not function properly.
The Company reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. A pixel is a tiny, 1x1 image that is loaded when you visit our Website, but instead of calling up an image, it causes a cookie or application to be downloaded. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. The Company reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites. As with cookies, our Website may utilize both session pixels and persistent pixels.
The cookies that we use for functionality and security purposes are considered necessary cookies, without which the Website would not function properly. These cookies allow some of the basic functions of our Website to work properly, such as remembering your preferences as you navigate the Website. In addition, these cookies help us secure the Website by preventing cross-website request forgery attacks and by throttling excessive request rates.
You have the option to manage the cookies we use in connection with the Website through the cookie consent settings and preferences centers made available to you on the Website.
