A cookie is a small text file that uniquely identifies your device. Cookies are sent to and stored on browser files on your device when you visit a website, including ours. Cookies are set and read by web beacons on websites. Web beacons, or "gifs", are electronic images that may be used on websites and in our emails. We and third parties use web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.
Do we and others use other tracking technologies?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We and third parties may use other, similar technologies from time to time, such as:
IP Address. Internet Protocol addresses (IP Address) can be used to identify your devices connected to the Internet and to connect your activities across multiple devices. IP addresses are used to determine your general location including region, city, state, and country and the Internet service provider (ISP) you use.
Mobile Device IDs. Mobile device IDs uniquely identify your mobile device and can be used for analytics on our apps and advertising on third-party apps that serve our ads.
Flash Cookies (also known as Local Shared Objects or "LSOs"). Flash cookies are used by the authors of files that are read by Adobe® Flash® Player and the websites hosting those files (learn more about Flash Player and LSOs at https://www.adobe.com/privacy/policies/flash-player.html). Flash cookies are used to collect and store information about your use of our services, for fraud prevention, to remember your preferences and for other Site operations.

Cookie and Tracking Controls
Cookie Preference Center
You can disable or block cookies by changing your browser settings so that cookies from our Site cannot be placed on your device (usually found in a 'settings' menu in your particular browser). If you choose to delete or reject cookies through your browser settings, this could affect certain features or services of our website. If you choose to delete cookies, settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, may be deleted and may need to be recreated. If you access this Site from other browsers, you must change settings in each browser to ensure your choice applies to the data collected when you use those browsers.
Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our websites do not currently respond to browser DNT signals. Instead, you can use the range of other tools to control data collection and use, including the cookie controls and advertising controls described above.
