Our Use of Cookies and Other Technologies
  • Cookies: Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your device’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our website and services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at our website and services. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies
    • Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your device when you close your browser or turn off your device. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the website and services. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our website and services.
    • Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device after you have closed your browser or turned off your device. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity.
  • Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically alert you to the use of cookies. Depending on your preferences, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our website and services who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the website, but some features may not function properly.

    • Third Party Ad Networks. From time to time, we may provide these unaffiliated advertisers with information, including personal information, about you. We use these network advertisers to provide advertisements on our website, application, and on other parties’ websites or other media (e.g., social networking platforms).
