Our use of cookies

Our Site uses "cookies" to enhance Users’ experience. Users’ web browsers place cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Users may choose to set their web browsers to refuse cookies, or to alert them when cookies are being sent. If they do so, some parts of the Site may not function properly.

These cookies do not collect information that identifies Users. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is used only to improve how the Site works.
  • Functionality cookies: These cookies may be used in order to enable the Site to remember choices made by Users (such as user name, language or region) and to provide enhanced, personalized features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes that Users make to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that are customizable. They may also be used to provide requested services, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track Users’ browsing activity on other websites.
  • Targeting cookies: These cookies may be used to deliver advertising that is more relevant to Users and their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times an advertisement is seen, as well as to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. Third-party vendors, including Google, may use these cookies to display our ads on websites across the Internet.
