This Cookie Notice explains generally what these technologies are, why we use them and your rights to control our use of them on our Sites through this interactive “Cookie Preferences” icon you will see on the Sites, typically in the bottom left-hand corner of the page you are visiting:
What are cookies and similar technologies?
A cookie is a small data file. When you visit a website, the website sends the data file to your device and allows the website to identify your device. Like virtually all websites, the Sites use certain types of cookies.
Some of the cookies we use are necessary to enable you to move around the Website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas that may contain content for registered users.
How long will cookies and similar technologies stay on my device?
The length of time a cookie will stay on your device depends on whether the cookie is a session cookie or a persistent cookie. Session cookies are temporary, only stay on your device while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your device until they expire or you or your browser delete them. The Sites use both session and persistent cookies. Other similar technologies vary in how long they may stay active as well.
Cookies and similar technologies used on the Sites:
We group the cookies and similar technologies used on our Sites into three categories: Required, Functional and Advertising. By using the “Cookie Preferences” icon on the Sites, you can obtain more information about each category and make choices about our use of such technologies during your Site visits.
Required cookies and technologies enable core functionality on the Sites, such as remembering previous actions when navigating back to a page during a single session. You are not able refuse Required cookies and technologies through our Cookie Preferences icon, but they do not gather information about you that could be used for purposes such as marketing.
Functional cookies and technologies allow the Sites to remember choices you make, such as your preferred language, to improve your browsing experience. They also allow us to analyze your use of the Sites and to evaluate and improve Site performance.
Our Functional category also includes analytics cookies and similar technologies, such as those offered by Google Analytics, that enable us to track visitor behavior and also measure Site performance. To learn more about Google Analytics and your data, please visit: https://policies.google.com.
