COOKIES, PIXEL TAGS, AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
Cookies are small bits of information that are stored by your computer’s web browser. They enable the entity that put the cookie on your device to recognize you across different websites, services, devices, and/or browsing sessions. Cookies serve many useful purposes. For example:
- Cookies can remember your sign-in credentials so you don’t have to enter those credentials each time you log on to a service.
- Cookies help Us and third parties understand which parts of Our Services are the most popular because they help Us to see which pages and features visitors are accessing and how much time they are spending on the pages. By studying this kind of information, We are better able to adapt the Services and provide you with a better experience.
- Cookies help Us and third parties understand which ads you have seen so that you don’t receive the same ad each time you access a Service.
- Cookies help Us and third parties provide you with relevant content and advertising by collecting information about your use of Our Services and other websites and apps.
Pixel tags are very small images or small pieces of data embedded in images, also known as “web beacons” or “clear GIFs,” that can recognize cookies and communicate information from your device to a server, such as the time and date a page is viewed, a description of the page where the pixel tag is placed, and similar information from your computer or device.
Local storage technologies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences. However, these technologies may make use of different parts of your device from standard cookies, and so you might not be able to control them using standard browser tools and settings.
By accessing and using the Services, you consent to the use and storage of cookies, web pixels, local storage technologies, and similar technologies on your browsers and devices. You also consent to the access of such technologies by Us and by the third parties with whom We work.

Please note that you may need to take additional steps to refuse or disable local storage and other technologies. If you choose to refuse, disable, or delete these technologies, some of the functionality of the Services may no longer be available to you.

Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms. Some web browsers transmit "do-not-track" signals to websites. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.
