The list below describe the cookies we use on this site and what we use them for.
First-party cookies are set directly by this website. These include a cookie we use to store a visitor’s preferences on this site. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. Another cookie uses Google Analytics to anonymously collect information about what pages are visited, how long visitors are on the site, how they got here and what they clicked on. These cookies are separate from each other and cannot be combined to personally identify you and your behavior. We use this information to help us understand what information our visitors are looking for. If you would like to prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics, you can use the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.
We have enabled Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting features based on Display Advertising. You can control the ads that are delivered to you or opt-out by editing your ads settings. The data provided by Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting is non-personally identifying and we use it to develop the site and content around your interests.
Third-party cookies are provided by our external partners to provide services we use or services to our users. Cookies of this type that we use include surveys, advertising performance analytics, and sharing buttons across the site. The sharing buttons allow visitors to share content on their social networks by using scripts from domains outside of our website. If you’d like information on how to disable third-party companies tracking your web use, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
We will occasionally update this privacy statement to reflect changes in our services and customer feedback. If there are material changes to this statement in how we will use your personal information, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change or by directly sending you a notification.
