Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Sites and Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, 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 manage how websites place cookies through your browser.
- Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies:
Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Sites and App to, among other things, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
- Local Storage objects:
We may use Flash Local Storage objects (“Flash LSOs”) to store your Site preferences and to personalize your visit. Flash LSOs are different from browser cookies because of the amount and type of data stored. Typically, you cannot control, delete, or disable the acceptance of Flash LSOs through your web browser. For more information on Flash LSOs, or to learn how to manage your settings for Flash LSOs, go to the Adobe Flash Player Help Page, choose “Global Storage Settings Panel” and follow the instructions.
- Third-party Analytics:
- Targeted Advertising and Ad Networks:
Our Sites do not honor browser do-not-track requests. However, you can find information on how to opt out of many website participating ad networks at the following sites: Network Advertising Initiative, and Digital Advertising Alliance. Please note that opting out does not prevent all targeted ads from being displayed to you. Also, if you delete cookies after opting out, your opt out may no longer be effective.
- Mobile App Users
If you download or use any of our Apps, and you agree to share your location information with us and receive push notifications from us, we will use your location information to send you customized notices, offers, and coupons. You can later opt out of push notifications or of sharing your location information. If you use an Apple iOS device, you can disable push notifications by turning them off for App you are using within the “Notifications Center” under the “Settings” menu; you may disable location information for an App by going to “Settings,” “Privacy,” and then “Location Services,” and turning off sharing for the particular App. For Android users, you can turn off these notifications through the Menu settings within our App.
