What are Cookies?

A “cookie” is a small data file containing a string of characters that we may store on your computer or mobile device when you access the Site. A “Flash cookie” is a small data file placed on your hard drive when you visit certain websites that use Adobe Flash. When you access the Site again, the cookies allow us to recognize your browser. Cookies may store your preferences and other information but cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.

Cookies that we, the website owner, set on the Site are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable us to provide third party features or functionality through the Site (e.g., advertising, social media functions and analytics).

Web Beacons

As well as cookies, we use other technologies to recognize and track your use of the Site. A web beacon (also known as a “tracking pixel” or “clear GIF”) is a clear graphic image (typically a one-pixel tag) that is delivered through a web browser or HTML e-mail, typically in conjunction with a cookie.

Web beacons allows us, for example, to monitor how users move from one page within the Site to another, to track access to our communications, to understand whether users have come to the Site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to measure how ads have been viewed and to improve site performance. 

We may use software tools such as Flash or JavaScript to collect page interaction information such as clicks, drags, and hover-overs, response times, errors, and length of visits to certain pages.

Targeting Advertising

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies. These companies may use information about your visits to the Site and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and service that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements.
