These Cookies also enable our affiliates and advertising partners to know whether you accessed our Website from their site, and/or whether your visit has led to the use or purchase of a product or service.  These cookies do not collect any information which could be used to identify you.  All the information collected is aggregated, and therefore anonymous.

We also use Cookies to implement tracking technology on our Website.  This allows us to display advertising that is tailored to you based on which content interests you the most and  which parts of our content interest you the most and which categories you frequent.  This tracking uses De-Identified Personal Information data (i.e., data that cannot be identified as being specifically associated with you) and does not use your Personal Information. We will not combine this data with your other Personal Information without your express permission.

Our servers automatically record certain log file information reported from your browser when you access our Website and/or Services.  These server logs may include information such as which pages you visited, your internet protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, and other such information.  These log files are generally deleted at set intervals.

Web Beacons

Pages of our Website and our emails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content, and verifying system and server integrity).

Pixel Tracking

The Website may employ “pixel tracking,” used in connection with advertisements on other sites.  Pixel tracking involves the use of pixel tags that are not visible to the user and consist of a few lines of computer code.  Pixel tracking measures the effectiveness of advertisements and compiles aggregate and specific usage statistics.  A “pixel tag” is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of websites that is used to track an individual user’s activity.  Pixels are small amounts of code placed on a web page, in a web-enabled app, or an email.  We may access these pixel tags to identify activity and interests that may allow us to better personalize our Website and/or Services.  This data is collected for use in our marketing and research.
