Cookies and Other Technologies
What are they?
Cookies are text information files that your web browser places on your computer, mobile phone, or other device when you visit a website. The cookie will help website providers recognize your device the next time you visit their website. There are other similar technologies such as pixel tags (transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an email, that indicate whether it had been viewed), web bugs (similar to pixel tags), and local storage objects (using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches), which are used in desktop software or mobile devices.
What do we use them for?
We and our third party providers use both session cookies (that expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on the device for a set period of time or until you delete them). We use the following types of cookies for the purposes set forth below:
These cookies are required for making use of the Services. These cookies include security cookies to authenticate users, prevent fraudulent use of login credentials, and protect user data from unauthorized parties as well as session cookies that remember your log-in session so you can move easily within the Services.
These cookies record some of your activity on the Services as well as information about your device, such as what browser you are running, and what pages you access. This information helps us and our third party service providers diagnose server and software errors, and in cases of abuse, track and mitigate the abuse.
What can you do about them?
General: Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but can be configured not to accept them or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Please note that without cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the features of the Services. Turning off the browser's cookies will prevent web beacons from tracking your specific activity. The web beacon may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address, but unique information will not be recorded. If you do not want to receive tracking pixels, you will need to disable HTML images in your email client, and that may affect your ability to view images in other emails that you receive. You can find more information about cookies at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
Google Analytics: You can control the information provided to Google and opt out of certain ads provided by Google by using one of the methods set forth at: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/
Advertising: The Digital Advertising Alliance has also developed a tool that may help you understand which third parties have currently enabled cookies for your browser or mobile device and how to opt-out of some of those cookies. You may access this tool at: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ from your browser and from your mobile device.
Browser Do Not Track
The Services do not support Do Not Track at this time. Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference you can set in your web browser to indicate that you do not want certain information about your webpage visits collected across websites when you have not interacted with that service on the page.

For example, government entities in the United States and other countries may have certain rights to access your Personal Information.
We comply with the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use and retention of personal information from EEA countries. We have certified that we adhere to the relevant Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement.
