What are cookies?
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons that are strictly necessary for our website to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to provide website functionality, or to enhance visitors' experience on our website by providing them with personalized content and advertising. This is described in more detail below. The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our website and the purposes they perform are described
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our website or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to understand the traffic patterns of users from one page within our website to another and whether you have come to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will often impair their functioning.
