What are cookies and similar technologies?
We also use other technologies similar to cookies, such as web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”), tags, and scripts, which may, for example, help us deliver cookies and understand usage and traffic on the Sites.
How long will cookies and similar technologies stay on my device?
The length of time a cookie will stay on your device depends on whether the cookie is a session cookie or a persistent cookie. Session cookies are temporary, only stay on your device while your browser is open, and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your device until they expire or you or your browser delete them. The Sites use both session and persistent cookies. Other similar technologies vary in how long they may stay active as well.
Why do we use these technologies?
Some are required to enable the Sites to operate. Others help us enhance your experience when using the Sites; for example, they can help us recognize you when you visit one of our Sites, remember your preferences, and, overall, give you a more personalized experience. They can make your interactions with our Sites faster and more secure, enable social media interaction, or facilitate the delivery of advertising more relevant to your interests. They can also give us a better understanding of how people use our Sites, such as what pages are most popular.

Do Not Track Signals:
Do Not Track or “DNT” is a browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. We do not respond to DNT signals, because there currently is no industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals.
