A cookie is a small text file sent to your browser when you visit a website. It may be either a "persistent" cookie or a "session" cookie. A "persistent" cookie is stored in your browser until it expires or until you delete the cookies stored in your browser. A "session" cookie expires when you leave the site or close your browser.
A cookie cannot store or send back any information to us that you have not specifically and voluntarily provided while on our Sites, or that is not among the information mentioned above that is contained in every user’s browser (e.g., domain name, browser type). Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information; however, once you choose to furnish a Site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.
Cookies Used & How We Use Them
Cookies perform various tasks, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of our website. Cookies may be stored on your device, if they are essential to the operation of a website. These cookies are called "strictly necessary" cookies.
Cookies that are not "strictly necessary" include "performance" cookies which perform services such as authentication, status, personalisation, security, and the like. These cookies require your permission for use.
If you choose to “Reject All” cookies, strictly necessary cookies will still collect the following information anonymously to allow the site to function:
Visitor Location – Continent, Country
Built-In Events (page views, scroll, downloads, out links)
Your IP address will be fully masked.
If you choose to allow "performance" cookies, we can combine the information derived from these cookies (time on site, pages visited, etc.) to form a unique profile of your site usage. We may also store data specific to your site usage in our CRM System. This will allow us to build a personalized profile and better tailor our site and communication with you.
If you select “Accept All Cookies” the following information will be collected:
Visitor IP address
All Traffic (signals sent from your computer to our server and back)
Traffic Sources (website link, email link, Google search, etc.)
A Web beacon is a tiny graphic image, typically 1*1 pixel, that is located on our website or in our emails that detects how you use our website and whether you received the email we sent to you.
When the small piece of code for the web beacon points to a site to retrieve the image, at the same time it can pass along information such as the IP address of the computer that retrieved the image, the time the web beacon was viewed and for how long, the type of browser that retrieved the image and previously set cookie values.
We and our third-party business partners use the information automatically generated by cookies and web beacons, to provide you with an optimal website experience.
In addition to managing your cookies on our Site, you may use your browser to control how your computer interacts with cookies. You may set your browser to accept all cookies, block certain cookies, require consent before a cookie is placed in your browser, or block all cookies.
We do not recommend blocking or deleting all cookies, since it will have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
If you wish to avoid web beacons in your emails, check your settings in your email reader program and disable the functionality that enables remote images to load, and refrain from clicking on links.
