Cookies and similar technologies
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for users, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).
We may also use pixels or “web beacons” that monitor your use of our Website. Web beacons are small strings of code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a webpage for the purpose of transferring data. For example, the URL of the page on which the web beacon appears or the type of browser that fetched the web beacon. Web beacons are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way as cookies. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

Some browsers have a Do Not Track setting. This sends a signal to websites asking them not to track your browsing. Generally, we do not currently respond to, or take any action with respect to web browser “Do Not Track” signals. However, in some instances our third-party service providers who integrate within our services do not honour Do Not Track signals.
