What other technologies do we use?

In addition to cookies, our Website and marketing communications may use other technologies, such as Flash technology and web beacons to collect information automatically.

  • Flash Cookies (also called Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”). Flash cookies are data files similar to cookies, except that they can store more complex data. Flash cookies are used to remember settings, preferences, and usage, particularly for video, interactive gaming, and other similar services.
  • Web beacons or clear pixels. Web beacons are small graphic images on a web page or in an email that can be used for such things as recording the pages and advertisements that you select or tracking the performance of email marketing campaigns.
  • Web server logs. Web server logs are records of activity created by the computer that delivers the webpages you request to your browser. For example, a web server log may record the search term you entered or the link you clicked to bring you the webpage. The web server log also may record information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser by the server.

Your Choices

Cookies. You can remove or disable cookies via your browser by referring to your browser’s configuration documentation, since the steps for doing so are usually browser-specific.  Removing or disabling cookies might adversely impact your ability to use our Website effectively.  Enabling cookies ensures a smoother experience when you use our Website.  For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your browser and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Interest-based advertising.  Some of our advertising partners that collect information about users’ activities on or through the Website may be members of organizations or programs that provide choices to individuals regarding the use of their browsing behavior or mobile application usage for purposes of targeted advertising. You can use the following opt-out options to limit use of your information for interest-based advertising by participating companies:

  • Digital Advertising Alliance: http://optout.aboutads.info
  • Network Advertising Initiative: http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1
  • European users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here, selecting the user’s country, and then clicking “Choices” (or similarly-titled link).

Some of the third-party advertising companies we work with offer their own opt-out options that you can use to limit their use of your information for interest-based advertising, including those listed above.  Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms and may not participate in the opt-out mechanisms that we linked above.

If you choose to opt-out of targeted advertisements, you will still see advertisements online but they may not be relevant to you.  Even if you do choose to opt out, not all companies that serve online behavioral advertising are included in this list, so you may still receive some cookies and tailored advertisements from companies that are not listed. You can also limit collection of your information for interest-based ads by blocking third party cookies in your browser settings or using privacy plug-ins or ad blocking software that help you block third-party cookies.  In addition, your mobile device settings may provide functionality to limit use of the advertising ID associated with your mobile device for targeted online advertising purposes.
