UNDERSTANDING COOKIES AND WHY WE HAVE THEM
Cookies are small data files stored on your internet-enabled device, such as your computer or your phone, and are now standard for most websites. While you are visiting a website, cookies allow the website to store certain types of information about you that the site uses in your browser. When you come back to that same website later, the same information stored by cookies in your browser is sent back to the website.

Additionally, there are a variety of types of cookies. Generally, cookies can be grouped into five types for most websites:
- Necessary Cookies: These are essential for the provision of the site and any requested services, and do not perform any additional or secondary function. For these cookies, we do not ask for your consent, but we do inform you about their presence on our Sites. We use certain cookies that are considered “strictly necessary” for the regular operation and security of our Sites, as well as for the provision of the services and products you request.

- Advertising / Targeting Cookies: These are used to personalize content to you. They can also be used to create profiles. These are often set by third parties.
- Social Media Cookies: These cookies allow the sharing of content on social media channels, such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube.
Finally, the cookie durations or length of time a cookie is enabled on your device is split into two categories:
- Session Cookies: These exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser.
- Permanent Cookies: These survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by the website to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again unless you take steps to delete them.

Web beacons do not place information on your device but may work in conjunction with cookies to monitor activity. You have the option to render some Web Beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies.
