What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We may link the information we store in cookies to any personal information you submit while on our website. Cookies save data about individual visitors to the website, such as the visitor's IP address, name, password, username, screen preferences, the pages of a website viewed by the visitor, and the advertisements viewed or clicked by the visitor.
We employ a software technology called web beacons (a.k.a. clear gif, web bug, pixel, tag), that help us better manage content on our website by informing us what content is effective. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. Data collected can include IP addresses. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We link the information gathered to our users’ or customers’ personal information to enable website tailoring, providing a better user experience, producing more relevant communications, achieving insights and internal reporting.
