Cookies and Tracking Technologies Policy
EFFECTIVE DATE: MARCH 2, 2018
- WHAT COOKIES AND ONLINE TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES DO WE USE?
Web Browser Cookies A cookie is a small text file that is sent by a website to your computer, mobile device, or other device where it is stored by your web browser. A cookie contains limited information, usually a unique identifier and the name of the online service. This information enables online services to recognize you as you interact with or revisit the service. Cookies are used for a wide variety of purposes such as to keep you logged in or to remember what’s in your basket if you’re shopping online, to remember your preferences and settings, to analyze how you use the service, and to serve advertising to you. Cookies may be served to you by the online service you are visiting (a “first party cookie”) or by another organization operating on the service, such as an analytics company or advertising network (a “third party cookie”). They will either be stored for the duration of your visit (a “session cookie”) or they will remain on your device for a fixed period, which could be months or even years, to remember you across multiple browsing sessions (a “persistent cookie”). Tracking Technologies: Web Beacons/Gifs, Pixels, Page Tags, Script Web pages, emails and Apps may contain a small transparent image file or line of code to record how you interact with them. They are often used in conjunction with web browser cookies (or the identifiers associated with your device), and they are used to help website and app publishers to better analyze and improve their services and to target advertising based on your browsing behavior and interests. For example, by knowing which web pages you visit or which elements of a page you viewed, when and for how long, whether you viewed and/or clicked on an advertisement on a site or whether you opened or clicked on marketing emails sent to you. Tracking Via Apps When you use our Apps we and third parties may record unique identifiers associated with your device (such as the device ID, advertising identifiers, or IP address), your activity within the App and your network location. This information may be used to analyze and improve our services, learn how you use our Apps, and to serve advertising to you.

Advertising Choices on Mobile or Other Devices For Apple devices with iOS6 and higher, you can access the settings on your device to Limit Ad Tracking to reflect your preference to not receive interest-based advertising. You may still see advertisements. But they may be less relevant to you. If you reset your advertising identifier in the settings, you will receive a new identifier, which will not be tied to your previous online activities. That identifier may be used to serve you interest-based advertising. For Android devices, you can access Ads under your Google account settings to opt out of ads personalization. You may still see advertisements. But they may be less relevant to you. If you reset your advertising identifier in the settings, you will receive a new identifier, which will not be tied to your previous online activities. That identifier may be used to serve you interest-based advertising. To opt out of personalized ads on a Roku device, access your device settings and check “Limit Ad Tracking” in the privacy section. You can opt out of some interest-based advertising on certain mobile devices by downloading the App Choices app. For more information see www.aboutads.info/appchoices.
