The Website uses cookies in order to provide you with an improved browsing experience; and to allow us to improve our Website and to serve targeted advertising. We may collect advertising information, including but not limited to, type of ads seen, number of times ads were served, pages where the ads were served, etc.

Our Website, like most other websites, utilizes dynamic IP address information.  We do not store, collect or use IP addresses, unless that information is utilized for analytic services as described below or with cookies as described above.

We may use analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to help us understand how users access and use the Website. In addition, we may work with agencies, advertisers, ad networks, and other technology services to place ads about our products and services on other websites and services. For example, we place ads through Google 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 Website (including our website 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”). Google provides tools to allow you to opt out of the use of certain information collected by Google Analytics at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and by Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network at  https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/. Please note that if you opt out using any of these methods, the opt out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any opt out options or programs, or the accuracy of any other entities’ statements regarding their opt out options or programs.

Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do with regard to these signals. Accordingly, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, we do not monitor or take action with respect to “Do Not Track” signals.
