What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a web server saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as log-in details, language, font size, and other functionality) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the website or browse from one page to another. Cookies are also used for analytics and marketing purposes, such as, for example, generating analytics or retargeting visitors (such as displaying advertisements for such website on other websites).

What types of cookies do we use and how do we use them?
We use first and third party session and persistent cookies. The cookies set by us are called "first party cookies" and the cookies set by our third-party partners and service providers are called "third party cookies." See below for more information on third party cookies.
Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you close your web browser. Many session cookies are essential to make our Digital Properties work correctly, as they enable you to move around our Digital Properties and use our features. Session cookies expire when you close out of the Digital Properties.
Persistent cookies remain on your device for much longer or until you manually delete it (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or "lifetime" of the specific cookie and your browser settings). Persistent cookies help us recognize you as an existing user of our Digital Properties, making it easier and more convenient to return to our Digital Properties or interact with our Services without signing in again. In addition, persistent cookies also help us record information about your web browsing habits during the lifetime of the persistent cookie.
Session and persistent cookies can be categorized further based on their particular function. Please see below for the categories of cookies that we use, along with a description of their purposes:
Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are strictly necessary for our Digital Properties to function properly and ensure our Digital Properties accessible to you (e.g., login functionality, load balancing, navigation, filling in forms).
Performance Cookies. Performance cookies allow us insight into metrics about how you use the Digital Properties, such as visit count, most to least popular pages, and traffic sources so we can optimize the performance of our Digital Properties.
Functional Cookies. Functional cookies remember the choices you make and enable our Digital Properties to provide enhanced features or settings based on your previous visits and selections, such as language preferences, remembering login details, and other conveniences.
Advertising Cookies. These cookies help ensure that we only show you relevant Brand offers and advertisements on our Digital Properties and on other sites. Essentially, these cookies help us create, and analyze the effectiveness of, our Brand offers and marketing campaigns, limit the number of times you see an offer or advertisement, and track whether the offers and advertisements have been properly displayed.
Third Party Cookies
As noted above, in addition to our own cookies, we may also use various thirty party cookies and similar technologies to report usage analytics and deliver advertisements on and through the Digital Properties.

Please consult your browser’s documentation for information on how to do this. If you do prevent cookies from being placed and delete persistent cookies, however, you may have to adjust some preferences every time you visit our Digital Properties, and the Digital Properties may not operate properly or as intended.
