A cookie is a small file stored on a user’s computer, which is created and then subsequently read by a web site server. A cookie contains personal information such as a user identification code, a record of a user’s customized preferences, or a record of which pages that the user has visited. These various technologies are used to help us better understand how our users use the Site, which parts of the Site they have visited, and they help us to measure the effectiveness of various features and functions of the site, the effectiveness of our advertisements, and how we rank in web-searches.
We treat the information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that IP addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information.
You can reset your browsers to either refuse all cookies, or to notify you when you are receiving a cookie to allow you to decide whether or not to accept it. In some instances, this may restrict certain Site functionality.
