“Web Beacons,” also known as an Internet tags, pixel tags or clear GIFs, are a type of technology placed on a webpage or in an email.

We and our Vendors use Cookies, Web Beacons, session replay, device advertising IDs and similar technologies on the Services for a number of business purposes, such as to monitor our advertising, remember your preferences, personalize your experience, understand how you use and interact with the Services, suggest products tailored to you, for security purposes, to improve the Services and for marketing campaign performance.

Please see the “Interest-Based Advertising” and “Do Not Track” sections below for information on the choices we provide you regarding Cookies, Web Beacons, and other tracking technologies.

Interest-Based Advertising

Interest-based advertising refers to collecting information about your online activities over time and across different websites, devices, and other online services to deliver advertisements based on online activity. We use interest-based advertising to deliver advertisements and other targeted content to you, including through third-party advertising partners which we may permit to track your visits to the Services using the technologies described above. These third parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services.

We, and many of the third-party advertising partners that place tracking tools on the Services, are members of the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. You can learn more about the options available to limit these third parties’ collection and use of your information on our websites by visiting our opt-out page and the websites for the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance. Users of our mobile applications may install the Digital Advertising Alliance’s AppChoices mobile app, available here, and choose to opt out of participating advertising networks’ use of mobile app activity for interest-based advertising purposes.

If you choose to opt out via the web-based tools, a Cookie will be placed on your browser indicating your decision. This Cookie is specific to a particular device and browser, so if you use different browsers or devices, you will need to opt out on each. In addition, because the opt-out is facilitated via Cookies, if you clear your Cookies you will need to opt out again. Likewise, mobile app opt-outs via AppChoices are based on your mobile device’s advertising identifier, so if you reset it, you will need to opt out again via AppChoices.

Do Not Track

We do not respond to the “Do Not Track” browser-based signal. However, our websites are designed to support the Global Privacy Control, described at, which you can enable by downloading a participating browser or browser extension.

6. Additional Technology

7. How We Protect Information

We take the security of personal information, including U.S. Social Security numbers, seriously and work to limit access to personal information to authorized employees, agents, contractors or vendors.

8. Reporting Security Vulnerabilities

We retain personal information for varying time periods depending on our relationship with you and the status of that relationship.
