You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or flush them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences. For further information, please see the “Opt-Out” section below. However, note that turning cookies off may cause certain Service features not to be available to visitors and may interfere with the Service’s functionality.

As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each web site you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data,” can be collected and stored by a web site’s server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the web site from which you linked to the Site. We may collect and use clickstream data as a form of aggregate information to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate throughout the Site and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. This information will be used to improve our Site and our Services.
Interest Based Advertising: We may ourselves, or with third party vendors, use certain technical data or usage data in connection with our own or vendor information to deliver targeted advertising to you when you visit other websites, social media platforms or our Services. Cookies, clickstream data, and other similar technologies described below may be used in this process. For example, if you are searching for information on a particular product, we or our vendor may cause an advertisement to appear on other websites you view with information on that product. This form of advertising is sometimes called “behavioral advertising”. We believe that such advertising is helpful because you will see advertisements that are relevant to your interests. However, if you would like to opt out of these interest-based advertisements, please follow the opt-out process described below under “Opt-Out.”
Cross Device Matching: We use certain technical data or usage data to facilitate cross device association. We or our third-party vendors analyze device activity data using a mathematical tool known as a “probabilistic algorithm” to determine if you have interacted with content across multiple devices and to match such devices. In connection with this analysis, we may rely on certain technical data or usage data (including demographic, geographic and interest-based data) from third parties such as data vendors, pursuant to their own privacy policies or we may use the technical data or usage data we collect in conjunction with such third party data. Based on this data, we may then display targeted advertisements across devices that we believe are associated and may provide other services to our advertisers such as tools, analyses, data and insights to see how their website or mobile applications are used and to further enable the display of targeted advertisements to you, including across your devices. Our advertisers may also provide us with deterministic data about you that may be used to supplement our probabilistic data. Based on this data, we may then display targeted advertisements across devices that we believe are associated and may provide other services to our advertisers such as tools, analyses, data and insights to see how their website or mobile applications are used and to further enable cross-device targeting and analysis. For further instructions on restricting our use of certain cross-device data, please see “Opt-Out”,” below
