- To enhance your online experience with us, our web pages may presently or in the future use “cookies.” Cookies are text files that our web server may place on your hard disk to store your preferences. We may use session, persistent, first-party and third-party cookies. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other PII unless you choose to provide this information to us.

Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device or browser, certain features of the Service may not work function properly without the aid of cookies.
- We or our service providers may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages for such purposes as compiling aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A pixel tag is an electronic image (often a single pixel), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors, and may be associated with cookies on visitors’ hard drives. Pixel tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of our Site and Service. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, pixel tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.
