Cookies and anonymous identifiers

We and third parties use various technologies to collect and store information when you use our Services, including sending cookies, pixel tags or other anonymous identifiers to your device.  Cookies" are data stored on our computer, cell phone or other device.  A "pixel tag" is a type of technology placed on a website or e-mail for the purpose of tracking activity, which is often used in combination with cookies.  Other "anonymous identifiers" are random strings of characters used for the same purposes as cookies, for example, for mobile devices where cookie technology is not available.  These technologies help us to know that you are logged in, to provide features based on your preferences, to understand when you interact with our Services, and to compile other information about your use of our Services.

The information collected using these technologies cannot, by itself, be used to determine your identity.  This information may, however, be combined to become personally identifiable information (i.e., information that can identify you).  In this case, we will treat the combined information as personally identifiable information.

Please note that, in most cases, you can delete or block cookies (for example, by using your browser settings), but this may affect your ability to use our Services.
