Cookies, Web Beacons & Other & Technologies
We and others use a variety of technologies to collect information about your device and use of our website. These technologies include cookies, java scripts, entity tags, and HTML local storage. Most web browsers can be programmed to accept or reject the use of some or all of these technologies, although you must take additional steps to disable or control other technologies.
Cookies – Cookies are small data files that are sent from a website’s server and are stored on your device’s hard drive either for only the duration of your visit (“session cookies”) or for a fixed period (“persistent cookies”). Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server.
Web Beacons – Web beacons are small, transparent images that are embedded in web pages, applications, and emails that are sometimes called “clear gifs,” “single pixel gifs”, “page tags” or “web bugs.” We use web beacons to track the web pages you visit, to test the effectiveness of our marketing, and to find out if an email has been opened and acted on.
Java Scripts – Java scripts are code snippets embedded in various parts of websites and applications that facilitate a variety of operations including accelerating the refresh speed of certain functionality or monitoring usage of various online components.
Entity Tags – Entity Tags are HTTP code mechanisms that allow portions of websites to be stored or “cached” within your browser and validates these caches when the website is opened, accelerating website performance since the web server does not need to send a full response if the content has not changed.
HTML5 Local Storage – HTML5 local storage allows data from websites to be stored or “cached” within your browser to store and retrieve data in HTML5 pages when the website is revisited.
These and similar technologies are used for the following purposes:
Performance Monitoring – Some of these technologies help us analyze and estimate traffic and assess the volume of use of services and functionality on the website. They show us how visitors and customers interact with our digital properties, whether there are any errors, the degree to which certain web pages are accessed and used and how they are performing or operating. These technologies help us understand how our website are used and assist us in improving the content and operation of our online property. When these technologies are used for performance monitoring, no information that identifies you is collected.
User Convenience – Some of these technologies enhance the ease of use of our website by accelerating load and refresh times and remembering information that you have provided on prior visits to our website.
Marketing – Some of these technologies are used to tailor your experience on our website, by controlling the promotions, advertisements and other marketing messages that may appear when you access or use ours or other digital properties. These technologies also help us learn which services and functionality you are using and how you are accessing information about us. We may use this information to personalize your visit to the website or to send you relevant promotions and advertisements.
Promotional Communication Choices – You can opt out of receiving promotional emails and mailings by following the opt out instructions in the promotional emails we send you. Please note that if you opt out of receiving promotional communications from us, we may still send you transactional communications, including emails about your accounts or purchases.

Please note that your location may be derived from your WiFi, Bluetooth, and other device settings. See your device settings for more information.

Each browser is different, but many common browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari) have preferences or options that may be adjusted to allow you to either accept or reject cookies and certain other technologies before they are set or installed or allow you to remove or reject the use or installation of certain technologies altogether.
