COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Like many websites, we use tracking technologies such as cookies, web beacons, and other technologies to record your preferences, track the use of our Websites, measure exposure to our online advertisements, improve the Websites, and make it easier to use and more relevant. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can usually modify your browser setting to disable or reject cookies. In addition, you may also render some web beacons unusable by rejecting or removing their associated cookies. If you delete your cookies or if you set your browser to decline cookies, some features of the Websites may not work or may not work as designed.
We work with third-party companies who also use these technologies to provide advertisements on third-party websites. These third parties may use these technologies to collect information about you when you use the Websites. They may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may also use persistent identifiers to track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond our Websites. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. While we do not knowingly provide these entities with information that personally identifies you, such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify you, unknown to us.
We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any website not operated by us to which our Websites links or that links to our Websites.

Many of the third-party advertisers that place tracking tools on our Websites are members of programs that offer you additional choices regarding the use of information about you for advertising. You can learn more about the options available to limit these third parties’ use of your information by visiting the websites for the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance, as well as Facebook. Similarly, you can learn about your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through your device settings.
Please note that opting-out of participating advertising networks services does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our Websites or on other websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest- based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these industry programs. If you delete your cookies, you may also delete your opt-out preferences.
