Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our Website will issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Website. You may choose to set your web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, note that some parts of the Website may not function properly.

We do not collect any personally identifiable information through the use of these third-party advertising systems. Cookies are placed on devices in order to serve ads based on visits to our websites. This allows us to make special offers and continue to market our Services to those who have shown interest in them.

To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit allaboutcookies.org, or aboutcookies.org. Because there is no consistent industry understanding of how to respond to “Do Not Track” signals, we do not alter our data collection and usage practices when we detect such a signal from your browser. If you do not wish to be tracked, please do not use the Website.
