Cookies and Clear Gifs (a.k.a. web beacons)

A "cookie" is a small software file stored temporarily (session cookie) or placed on your computer's hard drive (persistent cookie). The main purpose of a cookie is to allow a web server to identify a user's computer and web browser, and tailor web pages and/or login information to the user's preferences. Cookies help us promptly display the information You need and other information which We consider to be of interest to You. By gathering and remembering information about your website preferences through cookies We can provide a better web and marketing experience. Cookies don't give us access to users' computers, and the information we collect through cookies doesn't include personal information.

When You visit the Site or use the Service We use "session cookies" to allow us to uniquely identify your browser while You are logged in, and to process your online transactions.

Essential cookies: Some of the cookies We use are critical to the functionality of our Site. They are used to keep a user logged into the Site and remember relevant information when the user returns to the Site and uses the Service.

Functional cookies: We also use certain cookies to track users' activities on the Site, understand their preferences within the Site and improve their user experience.

Marketing cookies: A third set of cookies is provided by third parties and allows us to deliver customized marketing information to our customers based on their Site usage profile and avoid delivering irrelevant marketing to customers.

Clear gifs: Our third-party tracking utility company employs a software technology called clear gifs that helps us better manage content on our Site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers' personal information, and use them in our HTML-based emails to learn which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and our marketing campaigns. Customers can opt-out of these emails by following the unsubscribe instructions within such marketing emails.

Below We list the main cookies We use and explain what each cookie does:
