Targeting or advertising cookies

 

We may use cookies to market our products or services to you on third party websites.

Information about this is described under the paragraph in our Privacy Policy which is entitled “We may disclose the presence of a cookie to advertise our services.”

 

We sometimes use cookies delivered by third parties to track the performance of our advertisements. For example, these cookies remember which browsers have visited our websites.

This process helps us manage and track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.

 

We also contract with third-party advertising networks that may collect IP addresses and other information from web beacons on our websites, emails, and on third-party websites.
