Analytics and Advertising; Cookies; Web Beacons;
We use the following tracking technologies to automatically collect information from you:
1. Cookies. Cookies are small bits of information that are transferred to and stored in separate files within your device’s browser. We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies.
- Persistent cookies help with personalizing your experience, remembering your preferences, bringing your advertising, and supporting security features and remain on the visitor’s device after the browser has been closed.
- Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate our website. Session cookies exist only during a visitor’s online session and disappear from the visitor’s device when they close the browser software.
You can instruct your browser to stop accepting cookies. But if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use all portions or all functionality of a Site. Your ability to limit cookies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.
2. Web Beacons. Web beacons are small strings of code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a Web page, advertisement, or in an email message for the same purposes as cookies.
3. Do Not Track. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. However, there is no industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do with regard to this signal. At this time, we do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals sent from Web browsers.
4. Analytics. We use analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to help understand how users access and use the Sites. These analytics may rely on tracking technologies. To opt-out of tracking by Google Analytics, please visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of any opt outs offered by other entities.
5. Advertising. We work with agencies, advertisers, ad networks, and other technology services to place ads about our products on other websites and services. For example, we place ads through Google and Facebook that you may view on their platforms as well as on other websites and services.
As part of this process, we may incorporate tracking technologies into our own Sites (including our websites and emails) as well as into our ads displayed on other websites and services. Some of these tracking technologies may track your activities across time and services for purposes of associating the different devices you use, and delivering relevant ads and/or other content to you (“Interest-based Advertising”).
The companies we work with to provide you with Interest-based Advertising may be participants of the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) and/or the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To opt out of receiving Interest-based Advertising from the participating companies, please visit https://www.aboutads.info/choices and https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ for website opt outs and https://www.aboutads.info/appchoices for mobile opt outs. Note that opting out through these links only means that the selected participants should no longer deliver Interest-based Advertising to you, but does not mean that the participants will not process your information for Interest-based Advertising purposes or that you will no longer receive Interest-based Advertising from other companies. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of any opt outs offered by other entities.
While we take reasonable administrative, physical and technical measures to protect the information you submit via a Site against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. No Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Email sent to or from a Site may not be secure. You should use caution whenever submitting information online and take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.

European Economic Area, Switzerland, and United Kingdom
The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) provides additional rights to individuals located in the European Economic Area, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom (collectively, “Europe”). This section addresses those rights and applies only to those individuals.
Data protection laws in Europe distinguish between organizations that process personal data for their own purposes (known as “controllers”) and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as “processors”). We act as a controller with respect to personal data collected as you interact with our Sites.
Lawful Basis for Processing
For customers located within Europe, you have additional rights such as the right to:
- Request a copy of the personal information we hold about you;
- Ask that we correct or remove information you think is inaccurate or incomplete;
- Ask that we delete the personal information that we hold about you, or restrict the way in which we use such personal information;
- Withdraw consent to our processing of your personal information (to the extent such processing is based on consent);
- Object to our processing of your personal information (including for direct marketing purposes);
- Receive your personal information in a structured and commonly used format so that it can be transferred to another data controller (“data portability”)
If you would like to exercise these rights or understand if they apply to you, please contact us using the details set out in the How to Contact Us section above. We will respond to your request within 30 days. We may require specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and process your request. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection regulator in your jurisdiction.
Except as described in this policy or provided under data protection laws, there is no charge for the exercise of these rights. However, if your requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, we may either: (a) charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or taking the action requested; or (b) refuse to act on the request. Where we have reasonable doubts concerning the identity of the person making the request, we may request additional information necessary to confirm your identity.
Please note that we retain information as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, and may continue to retain and use information even after a data subject request for purposes of our legitimate interests, including as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent fraud, and enforce our agreements.
