What types of technologies do we use?
We use various technologies to collect information, and this may include sending cookies to your computer or mobile device. This helps us differentiate you from other users of our websites and provide you with a good experience when you browse our websites and use our products and services.
Cookies are small data files that are stored on your hard drive or in device memory by a website so it can remember something about you or your device for a later date. The cookies we use can only be read by a server in the domain that issued the cookie to you; they cannot read information stored on your device’s memory and are not used to run programs. They can either be temporary, in which case they are automatically deleted when the browser is closed, or persistent, in which case, they expire after a set duration of time. Among other things, cookies enable us to offer our products and services to you as well as to understand the information we receive about you, support the integrity of our registration process, retain your preferences and account settings, and help evaluate and compile statistics about user activity.
We may also collect information using web beacons, which are often used in combination with cookies. Web beacons are small electronic images (often transparent) that may be used on our websites, in our services or emails. We may use web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage, and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon.
The cookies and other similar technologies we use on our websites are either set by us or third-party partners. They can broadly be categorized as follows:
Necessary. These cookies and other similar technologies are essential for the proper functioning of our websites.
Functional. These cookies and other similar technologies are used to increase the base functionality of our websites, for example, by identifying you when you use our websites and remembering your login details.
Performance and Analytics. These cookies and other similar technologies are used to collect information on how you interact with our websites and use specific functionalities.
Targeting and Advertising. These cookies and other similar technologies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They remember the websites you have visited and that information is shared with other parties such as advertising technology service providers and advertisers.
Social Media. These cookies and other similar technologies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our websites or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social media website. The social network will record that you have done this. This information may be linked to targeting/advertising activities.
How to opt-out
Unlike cookies, you cannot decline web beacons. However, configuring your browser to either automatically decline cookies or to prompt for a response may keep web beacons from tracking activity.
