Certain pages of the Websites and/or html email correspondence may use session cookies, persistent cookies or web beacons to anonymously track unique visitors, save website preferences and to allow us to recognize visits from the same computer and browser. Some cookies are essential for the operation of our Site (“Essential Cookies”). These cookies enable services you have specifically asked for. These cookies remain on your device only until you close your browser after visiting our websites. Some cookies are used to collect anonymous information on the pages visited (“Performance Cookies”). For example, we might use Performance Cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. These cookies remain on your device only until you close your browser after visiting our website. Some cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience (Functionality Cookies”). These Functionality Cookies remain on your device for an extended period of time. When you revisit our Websites we recognize Functionality Cookies and remember your preferences or can automatically log you on to the website. Personal information on our system may be associated with Functionality Cookies but the cookies themselves do not contain any of your personal information. Finally we may use “Behaviorally Targeting Advertising Cookies” which collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.
