Cookie Policy

Your trust is our top priority and how we use cookies is integral to keeping that priority. This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are, the different types of cookies, how we use them and most importantly how to control your cookies. In the “Cookies” section of our Privacy Policy, we state that we use cookies. By continuing to use our Websites, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes described in this policy.


Like many other Websites, our Websites uses cookies to improve your online experience. “Cookies” are small pieces of information sent by an organization to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow the websites to recognize you when you visit. They collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual. For example, we use Cookies to store your country preference. This helps us improve our Websites and deliver a more personalized service.


We use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie is only stored on your device during a single visit to the site (“browser session”) and is deleted when you close your browser to end the session. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our websites.

A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. We use persistent cookies to remember you, so you don’t have to log in every time you use our websites. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our sites.

Analytics / Log Files

Our websites and services gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. This information is used to administer and improve performance, diagnose server problems, and to help ensure the security of our websites and services.

3rd Party Tracking

We use third party cookies, web beacons, images and scripts from our partners and service providers to help us better manage content on our sites and track our marketing efforts.

Social Media

Our website includes social media features, such as the Facebook Like button and widgets, such as a “Share” button. These features may collect information such as your IP address, which page you are visiting on our sites, and may set a cookie to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our websites. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.


We suggest you accept all cookies from our Websites to get all the benefits outlined above.

You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. Unless you have adjusted your browser settings, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our Websites.

If you reject cookies, you may still use our sites, but your ability to use some areas of our sites, such as contests or surveys, will be limited.
