Cookie Disclosures

Our Digital Properties may use cookies and other tracking technologies, such as pixel tags and web beacons. Here are some of the ways we use these technologies:

  • Help us better understand how our website is being used
  • Measure the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing activities
  • Support our security and fraud prevention efforts

A cookie is a small file of data that a website or mobile app sends and stores on your device. The next time you visit our website, we may use the information stored in your cookie to make your visit easier. A cookie doesn’t tell us your identity unless you have chosen to provide it to us. Cookies can’t access information or files from your device. There are two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies.

  • A session cookie is erased when you close your internet browser and leave our website.
  • A persistent cookie is a file that remains on your device when you close your internet browser. Only the website that created the cookie can read it when you revisit that site.

Cookies can be used to identify a visitor only if the visitor has used a website's login feature. Sometimes you may ask us to save your login ID for use the next time you visit our website. In that case, we’ll use a cookie or a mobile secure storage to store your login ID in an encrypted format on your device. The website will recognize you the next time you visit and sign in.

Persistent cookies have expiry dates and are automatically deleted from your device after that date. You can also clear your stored cookies through your browser preferences on your device. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit our website, a new cookie will be added.

You can set your website browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, so you can decide whether to accept or reject it. You can also use your device settings to control whether certain information is collected, such as geolocation or certain device information. You may choose not to accept cookies or not to provide location and other device information. In those cases, you may notice some digital services may not function effectively.
