Cookie Notice


Last Modified:  20 March 2024

Like many companies, we and our service providers and third-party partners, including advertisers and vendors, use cookies, web beacons and other technologies on our website and other services (collectively "Services") to collect information that helps us enhance your experience and our Services.  As described in more detail below, the cookies and other similar technologies (collectively "cookies") that we use allow our websites to function and help us to understand how to better tailor the Services to your interests.


A "cookie" is a small text file that is placed on a visitor's computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify it or to store information in the browser. A "web beacon" links web pages to servers and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.


First-Party v. Third-Party Cookies.  First-party cookies are ones that we place (or have a service provider place for us), which enable you to use the Services and their features and allow us to perform certain internal analytics activities.  Third-party cookies are placed by certain third parties when you visit the Services or other websites or online services.  These third-party cookies enable certain functionalities and advertising to be provided on the Services.  These third parties collect and use this information pursuant to their own privacy policies.

Below we list the different types of first and third-party cookies and other similar technologies we may use on the Services:

Strictly Necessary Cookies and Similar Technologies. These cookies and similar technologies are essential to Services in order make our website  work correctly. You may block placement of these cookie through your browser settings, but without them, the performance of the Services may be affected, and you may not be able to take full advantage of our services and features.  These cookies may be used to assist in fraud prevention, security, and to enable purchasing capabilities. 

Functionality Cookies and Similar Technologies. These cookies and similar technologies collect information about your choices and preferences (such as, your language preference, user name, or location) to provide a more personalized online experience and show you content relevant to where you are, such as customizing a certain webpage, remembering if we have asked you to participate in a promotion, and for other services you request, like watching a video or commenting on a blog.  If you access the Services using a mobile, tablet or other internet enabled device, we may collect a unique identifier assigned to that device ("UDID"), geolocation data or other traffic information for that device.  These features help us improve your experience with Services. For example, functionality cookies help us improve your visit to the website, use credentials to automatically login a user, determine the appropriate device location during a session, count articles viewed or store language settings.

Analytics Cookies and Similar Technologies. We and our service providers use analytics cookies and similar technologies to collect information about your use of Services to help create reports and statistics on the performance of the Services, which enable us to improve the way they work.  Analytics cookies and similar technologies collect information such as your IP address, type of device, operating system, referring URLs, country information data and time of page visits, and pages visited.  This information allows us to identify overall patterns of usage on the website and help us record any difficulties you have with Services. 


We use the information we collect through automated means to allow you access to our Services and for the following general purposes:  

  • Protect our Networks: Cookies and similar technologies help us identify and prevent threats to our sites. They are necessary to protect your information and our business from outside threats.
  • Allow you to Access our Services:  Cookies and similar technologies permit your connection to our websites: our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, other software or hardware information, and your geographic location.
  • Access Usage of Services:  We use information about your usage of our Services, such as pages you have visited, content you have viewed, search queries you have run, and advertisements you have seen or interacted with to assess how our Services are used.

In addition, third parties that support our Services by providing other services, such as allowing tracking aggregate service usage, may also use cookies and other technologies to collect information relevant to the provision of those services.  For more information on how third parties use cookies and similar technologies on our Services, please see the section below on How Third Parties Use Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies on our Services. 


We work with third parties that provide other services to support our Services. For example, we use analytics services supported by third party companies who generate analytics cookies on our behalf, such as Google Analytics. We may not have access to these cookies, although we may use statistical information arising from the cookies provided by these third parties to customize content and for the other purposes described above. These companies may also transfer this information to other parties where required to do so by law, or where such other parties process the information on their behalf. Please note that we may not control these third-party cookies and other technologies and their use may be governed by the privacy notices or policies of the third parties employing them.
