Cookies and Other Technologies

Personal Data Collected From Customers

A cookie is a piece of information sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies can help a website like ours recognize repeat users and allow a website to track web usage behavior. They also allow us to share activity on our site with third party partners, including advertising partners.  For more details on cookies and similar technologies please visit All About Cookies.

Cookies can be stored on your computer for different periods of time. “Session cookies” only last for as long as the browser session and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. “Persistent cookies” survive after your browser is closed until a defined expiration date set in the cookie (as determined by the party placing it) and help recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again. We use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service, and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service.

We also use pixel tags, from the third parties described below, to get information about your usage of the Site and the Service, determined whether you interacted  with email or other communications, and to serve advertising to you. Pixel tags are a technology similar to cookies that can be embedded in online content or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites (for example, to know when content has been shown to you), or to know when you have viewed particular content or a particular email message.
