What Cookies Are: Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or
mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in
order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide
reporting information. Cookies set by the website owner are called “first party cookies.”
Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies.”
Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or
through the website (e.g., like advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties
that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the
website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphic files that contain a unique
identifier that enables us to recognize when someone has visited the Services or opened
an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic
patterns of users from one page to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to
understand whether you have come to the Services from an online advertisement
displayed on a third-party website, to improve Services performance, and to measure the
success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant
on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSO’s”) to, among other things,
collect and store information about your use of the Services, for fraud prevention, and for
other site operations. If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can
adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the Adobe
website and following the instructions. Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict
or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some
Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our
Services or online content.

links to leave the Services, any information you provide to these third parties is not covered by
