PLEASE READ THIS POLICY CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE TREAT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND YOUR CHOICES AND RIGHTS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS POLICY, YOU SHOULD NOT ACCESS OR USE OUR SITE.
COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
We use "Cookies" or "Other Technologies" (as mentioned below) on our Platform. Cookies are small files created by a web server that can be stored and Other Technologies allow us and third parties to obtain information about your visits to the Site, usage of the Platform, including to analyze your visiting patterns. We use this information to provide services on the Platform and messages and content for us and others that are specific to your interests.
Cookies and Similar Technologies – General Information
A. First and Third-Party Cookies
A “cookie” is a small file created by a web server that can be stored on your device (if you allow) for use either during a particular browsing session (a “session” cookie) or a future browsing session (a “persistent” or “permanent” cookie). “Session” cookies are temporarily stored on your hard drive and only last until they expire at the end of your browsing session. “Persistent” or “permanent” cookies remain stored on your hard drive until they expire or are deleted by you. Local stored objects (or “flash” cookies) are used to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from, and on a website. First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting, and they can only be read by that site. Third-party cookies are set by a party other than that website.
Cookies alone cannot be used to disclose your individual identity to us, though in some cases we may tie Graphy or third-party Cookies to personal information you have provided to us or that we have otherwise obtained about you.
B. Other Similar Technologies.
Other Technologies may be used for the same purposes as our Cookies, to allow us and third parties to know when you visit the Platform, and to understand how you interact with emails or advertisements. Through Other Technologies, non-personal information (e.g., your operating system, your browser version, and the URL you came from) or aggregate information may be obtained and used to enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns. Other Technologies that may be used include:
▪ Web beacons: These are tiny graphics (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web pixels”) with unique identifiers that are used to understand browsing activity. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are rendered invisible on web pages when you open a page.
▪ Social Widgets: These are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media providers that allow you to interact with social media services when you view a webpage or mobile app screen. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party that provided the widget and are controlled by third parties.
▪ UTM Codes: These are strings that can appear in a URL (the “Uniform Resource Locator,” which is typically the https address entered to go to a web page) when you move from one web page or website to another, where the string can represent information about browsing, such as which advertisement, page, or publisher sent the user to the receiving website.
▪ Site Optimization and Usage Tracking. We may contract with third party service providers to help manage and optimize our Internet business and communications, and these third-party service providers may also use the technologies described in this section to collect certain information.
What Cookies and Other Technologies Are in Use and Why Do We Use Them?
We may use different types of cookies on the Platform:
Essential Cookies are necessary for the Platform to work and enable you to move around it and use its services and features. Disabling these Cookies may make the services and features unavailable.
We use Functional Cookies to save your settings on the Platform—settings such as language and other user preferences you have previously opted for on the Site . We may also use "Flash Cookies" for some of our animated or other video content.
These types of Cookies are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from your device when you close the browser or the application. We use Session Cookies to support the functionality of the Platform and to understand your use of the Platform—that is, which pages you visit, which links you use, what content you are viewing, and how long you stay on each page.
These types of Cookies are not deleted when you close your browser or the application but are saved on your device for a fixed period of time or until you delete them. Each time you visit the Platform, the server that set the Cookie will recognize the persistent Cookie saved on your device. We and others use persistent Cookies to store your preferences, so that they are available for your next visit, to keep a more accurate account of how often you visit the Platform, how often you return, how your use of the Platform may vary over time and the effectiveness of advertising efforts.
These cookies allow us and other advertisers to show you the most relevant products, offers, and advertisements on the Platform and third-party sites, or through emails or other message platforms. These types of Cookies also help us provide you with content on the Platform that is tailored to your interests and needs. As noted below, some Analytics Cookies and Other Technologies are used in part to facilitate advertising. Advertising Cookies also include Social Plug-In Cookies
Social Plug-In Cookies
Social Plug-In Cookies are used to share content from the Platform with members and non-members of social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest. These Cookies are usually set by the social networking provider, enabling such sharing to be smooth and seamless.
Analytics Cookies collect information about your use of the Platform and enable us to improve the way it works. These Cookies give us aggregated information that we use to monitor site performance, count page visits, spot technical errors, see how users reach the Platform, and measure the effectiveness of advertising (including emails we send to you).
▪Remember your username and password for future visits so that log-in is easier and faster;
▪Track your response to Platform content for analysis;
▪Measure how many people use the Platform, and how they use it, so that we may keep it running quickly and efficiently; and
▪Help us and others deliver communications and content to you that are relevant and responsive to your interests and location.
Other Third Party Technologies
Some third parties may use automated data collection technologies to collect information about you when you browse the Internet. The information they collect about your online browsing activities over time and across different websites and other online services may be associated with your personal information and used to provide you with targeted content. We do not control these third parties’ technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about targeted content, you should contact the responsible party directly or consult their privacy policies.
Choices About Cookies
We provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us, and we have created ways to give you control over your information. Most web browsers are set by default to accept cookies. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may choose to set your browser to remove or reject cookies by adjusting your browser settings.
