A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive by a web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies are essential to the Site, Software, and/or Services, and will always be used. Web beacons, tags, and scripts may be used on the Site or in emails to help us deliver cookies and count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by our service/analytics providers (for example, Google Analytics) on an individual and aggregated basis.
For example, when you use our Site, we may place a number of cookies in your browser. We use these cookies to enable us to hold session information as you navigate from page to page within the Site, improve your experience, and track and analyze usage and other statistical information. If you elect not to activate the cookie or to later disable cookies, you may still visit our Site, and use our Software or Services, but your ability to use some features or areas of those offerings may be limited or may not work properly or at all.

Types of cookies the Service uses
Many jurisdictions require or recommend that website operators inform users/visitors as to the nature of cookies they utilize and, in certain circumstances, obtain the consent of their users to the placement of certain cookies.
Each cookie used by the Service falls within one of the following categories:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
Essential cookies (mostly first-party cookies) are sometimes called “strictly necessary,” as without them we cannot provide many services that you need. For example, essential cookies help remember your preferences as you use our Service and/or Site.
They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms, but also for limited visit counting purposes or they are mandatory to protect the website from malicious use e.g. reCAPTCHA. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies as described above, but parts of the site may not work as a consequence.
These cookies track information about your visits and usage of the Service and/or Site so that we can make improvements and report our performance — for example, to analyze visitor and user behavior so as to provide the more relevant content or suggest certain activities. We might also use analytics cookies to test new ads, pages, or features to see how users react to them. Google Analytics is the main technology we currently use in this regard. To learn more about Google Analytics and your privacy, visit the “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” page at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. To opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics when using our website, visit tools.google.com/….
Functionality or Preference Cookies
During your visit to the Site, or while you use our Service, cookies are used to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username, language, or your region). They also store your preferences when personalizing the Service and/or Site to optimize your use of the Service. These preferences are remembered through the use of persistent first- and third-party cookies, and the next time you visit the Site or use our Service, you will not have to set them again.
Targeting or Advertising cookies
These third-party cookies are placed by third-party advertising platforms or networks in order to deliver ads and track ad performance or enable advertising networks to deliver ads that may be relevant to you based upon your activities (this is sometimes called “behavioral tracking” or “targeted” advertising) on the Site. They may subsequently use information about your visit to target you with advertising that you may be interested in on the Site and other websites. You can opt-out of interest-based targeting provided by participating ad servers through the Digital Advertising Alliance (youradchoices.com/… or www.aboutads.info/…) or on “Your Online Choices” (www.youronlinechoices.eu/…).
If you would like more information about what many advertising companies and advertising networks do and to know some of your choices about not having this information used by the companies that are a member of the Network Advertising Initiative, please visit //www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp. We cannot assure that all of our third-party advertising companies and advertising networks are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, or that they comply with the policies of the Network Advertising Initiative.
