Cookie Use Statement

Last updated: August 26, 2018


We and our partners use cookies and similar technologies on our websites. Here we explain these technologies, why we use them, and the choices you have.

TECHNOLOGIES WE USE

Like many websites, we use cookies, pixels (aka “web beacons”), and local storage to remember things about you so that we can provide you with a better experience.

  • Cookies are small data files stored on your browser or device. They may be served by the entity that operates the website you are visiting (“first-party cookies”) or by other companies (“third-party cookies”).
    • For example, we partner with third-party analytics providers, like Google, which set cookies when you visit our website. This helps us understand how you are using our website so that we can improve it.
  • Pixels or web beacons are small images on a web page or in an email. Pixels collect information about your browser or device and can set cookies.
  • Local storage allows data to be stored locally on your browser or device and includes HTML5 local storage and browser cache. 

OUR USE OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES

Below are the ways that we and our partners use these technologies on our website. 

CATEGORY OF USE

PURPOSE OF THE USE

Features and Performance

To provide you with functionality and optimize the performance of the website; for example, to improve our website’s load speed and performance.

Analytics and 
Research

To help us understand how you are using the website so that we can make it better, faster, and safer.


YOUR CHOICES

You have a number of options to control or limit how we and our partners use cookies and similar technologies.

  • Although most browsers and devices accept cookies by default, their settings usually allow you to clear or decline cookies globally or on a per-website basis. If you disable all cookies on our website, however, some of the features of the website may not function properly.
  • To prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics, you can also install Google’s opt-out browser add-on.
  • Check your mobile device for settings that control ads based on your interactions with the applications on your device. For example, on your iOS device, enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting, and on your Android device, enable the “Opt out of Ads Personalization” setting.

Please note: Our website does not respond to Do Not Track signals because we do not track our users over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising. However, we believe that you should have a choice regarding interest-based ads served by our partners, which is why we outline the options available to you above.

COOKIE USE IN OUR SITE INTERCEPT SURVEYS

We provide site intercept surveys for some of our clients to help them understand how you are using their websites. If you visit one of our clients’ websites while it is running a site intercept survey, you will be given an opportunity to opt in or out. If you opt to participate in the survey, we will place a cookie on your browser or device to help our client learn, for example, which pages you visit, how long you spend on each page, and which links you click on.  The cookie will be active for that browsing session only and will be removed from your browser or device when you close your browser. The survey information collected using the cookie will be available only to us and our client and will not be shared or transmitted to any other party.
 
If you opt not to participate in the survey, your usage of our client’s website will not be monitored by us.

Whether or not you choose to participate in the survey, a permanent cookie will be placed on your browser or device so that you will not be asked to participate in the survey again on later visits to the website. No personal data is stored in this cookie.
