COOKIES AND INTERNET ADVERTISING
We may log information using “cookies.” Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive by a website. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on the Website. This type of information is collected to make the Website more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
We may also use “web beacons” (i.e., “web bugs” or “single-pixel” or “clear” GIFs) on the Website. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies just as if you had requested a web page from their website.
Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to websites with which the web browser communicates. The Website does not currently recognize or respond to “do not track” signals.
HOW WE PROTECT INFORMATION
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of your personal information, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.
INFORMATION CHOICES AND CHANGES
Our marketing emails tell you how to “opt-out” from our marketing communications. If you opt out, we may still send you non-marketing emails. Non-marketing emails include emails about your accounts and our business dealings with you. We may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Policy, even if you indicate that you no longer wish to receive promotional emails from us.
