Cookies and other Automated Technology
A “cookie” is a small text file that is placed onto an Internet user’s web browser or device and is used to remember and/or obtain information about the user. A “web beacon” is a small object or image that is embedded into a web page, application, or email and is used to track activity. They are also sometimes referred to as pixels and tags.
As you use our website, some information can be “passively” collected using various technologies (including mobile devices), such as cookies, web beacons and navigational and location data collection (clickstream, log files, server logs). Your Internet browser automatically transmits some of this information, such as the URL of the website you just visited, the Internet Protocol (IP) address and browser version currently being used by your computer, or user’s interaction with our site (such as date, time, frequency and length of visits, and pages accessed).
