What are cookies and tracking devices?
“Cookies” are small data files placed on your computer or other device which record information. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. For example, a cookie could enable our Services to recognize your browser, while another cookie could store your account preferences and other information to help make our Services more customized. We may use two kinds of cookies, “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session cookies normally expire when you close your browser, while persistent cookies remain on your device until they expire or are deleted. “Web beacons” (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFS”) are pieces of code or pixels embedded in a web page or email to track engagement with and responses to emails, web pages or ads, or to access or communicate with cookies. “Tracking URLs” are special URLs that can be used to track engagement with and responses to emails or web pages. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by our service/analytics providers on an individual and aggregated basis.
